Mission Statement

Enhancing social capital is prerequisite for better changes. This could be realized by developing partnership among the private sector, academia, community based organization, non-governmental organization and public media. Creating common ground based on common interest is desirable for jointly implementation of the stakeholders to build the trust, confidence and mutual understanding for strengthening partnership further. Therefore, we devote ourselves in facilitating “enabling environment” for social capital formation through Private-Public-Partnership Development, as Our Mission.
