With any company’s success, responsibility arises towards its surroundings, especially the society in which it operates. PERSOL as an economy corporation committed itself to responsibility for society people, customers, employees, and most importantly: the environment. In addition, PERSOL recognizes ISO 26000 as a reference document that provides guidance on social responsibility.
PERSOL Corporation has a sustainable & comprehensive outlook towards a responsible & ethical mindset in trade and business. Based and focused on such a framework, PERSOL Corporation has started its social responsibility project called “Knowledge Sharing” and intends to develop this idea in different aspects of Life and Society.
Making positive changes in the society cannot be achieved by underestimating the crucial role of people. Development is a consistent process based on human capital and is not achievable without focusing on individuals' improvement. Education, and children education in particular, is the starting point of development and the keystone as well. Children are the one to shape and nourish various part of the society including economy, culture, art, technology and so on. Consequently, children must be educated as the essential resource of development.
Iran's private sector attempts to play a constructive and active role in education system have led to "Iran-e-Man" campaign which means "My Iran" in Persian language. Iran-e-Man in association with other educational programs aims for constructing one hundred of schools across the country and help the improvement of an up-to-date and pervasive education system.
We believe that educational development comes before economic development and we are very pleased to support "Iran-e-Man" campaign which is responsible for school construction in cross-country less-privileged villages.
Over the last three years, we have done extensive work on the state of education in less-privileged villages and as a result 50 schools have been constructed across the country.
Persol is also privileged to be part of Iran-e-Man project to construct first Iranian sustainable school in Chabahar district. Started recently in “Seyyedbar” village, Iran-e-Man’s new school is a step forward to its bigger project of social and economic empowerment in this region. In this regard, Iran-e-Man sustainable school is expected to be a local center for learning and discussing the process of development.
Persol’s CSR team has made an attempt to revive Baluchi’s needlworks, helping local women to be the pioneers of development in Chabahar.
