Our foundation’s key objective is to provide fixed social infrastructure and resources that enable self-sustaining communities.

About

The ASLA Foundation was established by the ASLA Construction Group in 2021 to help the group realise its vision of scaling up social investment through projects beyond a level that it is able to achieve with its own resources.

The ASLA Foundation, and NPO, facilitates social impact investment, that contributes to a community’s ability to be self-sustaining.
