Giving care to orphans is one of the issues that attracts the CSR Program and encourages volunteer participation. Among its top objectives, the Program cares for and addresses the needs of orphans to make up for their lack of family support.

5- Literacy classes
Literacy classes are offered to women, men and children including debtors who dropped out of school. Literacy classes are set up to empower children and to safeguard them against child labor. Apart from the literacy classes, the program includes developing a strategy to financially cover the needs of families that have children in school; this is carried out through the initiative entitled "Towards Education for Every Child".
