According to Biram Fall, Regional General Manager for QNET in Sub-Saharan Africa; “QNET is committed to giving back to communities. That is why we invested heavily in sustainable corporate social responsibility projects across different parts of Africa through our Corporate Social Responsibility arm, RYTHM Foundation. RYTHM stands for Raise Yourself To Help Mankind. It is based on the principle that an individual first needs to raise him or herself to be able to help another individual to rise. The Foundation’s mission is to promote strategic and sustainable development of communities in need through social investment, fundraising and grant-making. The Foundation’s charitable endeavours fall under three focus areas: children with special needs, community development and community wellbeing. The Foundation’s commitment to a better future stems from a strong sense of responsibility and commitment to engage with communities and assist them in developing sustainable solutions in every aspect and element.”
He stated further: “Over the years and during Ramadan, QNET, brought joy to underprivileged communities across Africa. In a social intervention programme implemented across 13 African countries, QNET made donations of food items and cash. The cash donation was to aid the education of needy children living in slums.”
QNET is also active in sports sponsorships around the world. Some of the more recent prominent partnerships include being the Direct Selling Partners of Manchester City Football Club and Manchester City Women’s Football Club, and the Confederation of African Football (CAF) for Total CAF Champions League, Total CAF Confederation Cup and Total CAF Super Cup. Previous major partnerships have included Formula One, badminton and more, due to the company’s strong belief that the drive, passion and teamwork of sports mirror that of QNET.
QNET has a culture of social responsibility which is deeply rooted in its business mandate and across its global operations.
