Social Impact

At Zwarttech, we consider ourselves to be mindful people and our business model surely reflects this. We are maximising economic development by mobilising knowledge globally; this will benefit both the western and African economies. While economies enjoy the optimal price/quality ratio, our socially driven way of working ensures that corporations benefit and that individuals gain from the transatlantic partnerships’ economic success. We see ourselves as social entrepreneurs.

We believe that this is the right time for Africa to sustainably and inclusively converge with the rest of the world in terms of standards of living and economic opportunities, In order to do so, we have chosen 8 of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals that are relevant to our business. You can read more about this on our About Us page.

At Zwarttech we have developed and implemented the following programs:

Each euro matters

We are a socially driven organisation with an aim to leave a positive impact on the lives of everyone we work with. Our team constantly comes up with innovative ideas for social return. In January 2020, Zwarttech took an initiative to donate €1 for every hour an engineer is engaged to an organization. For example, if 10 engineers are at work for 32 hours a week for 9 months that would total to €11.520 in donations alone. We carefully selected 5 NGO’s (and its programs) for possibly donating to. The final purpose of this donation will be determined by our clients, where they will be able to select the project. In this way, our customers can actively contribute and also use this in their own corporate social responsibility program and report.
