AMAN’s employees are our most important resource.
To encourage the gift of giving through our Employee Gift Matching program, we donate to causes near and dear to our staff, such as Debra Canada which helps people with Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB), a rare hereditary skin disorder.
With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, many residents found it challenging to live under such difficult circumstances.
This included front-line workers who gave selflessly of themselves to help the rest of us weather such difficult times. AMAN made it a core mission to help not just those in need, but also those who helped us, by supporting initiatives and organizations such as the Frontline Workers Care Package and Canadian Food Bank Affiliates, to ensure that citizens were able to get through the pandemic together.
Established in late-2003, Ciqam is a social enterprise that works with rural women in the mountainous region of Gilgit-Baltistan in Pakistan. It provides younger women from low income households with skills-based training in non-traditional vocations such as documentation of cultural heritage sites, carpentry, plumbing and hospitality. By empowering them to go beyond socially and economically constructed parameters, Ciqam enables these women to become independent and contributing members of their communities.
AMAN is a proud supporter of Ciqam, providing funds for training students, supplying carpentry equipment, and water management at the plantation.
