SAS Cares

About Us

SAS Cares is the Corporate Social Investment (CSI) wing of Sandock Austral Shipyards (SAS). This foundation was borne out of an existential purpose and vision of being “In Business for the Greater Good”.
SAS Cares aims to realise its purpose through empowerment initiatives.
We believe in the principle of helping people to recognize and utilise their strengths and potential in uplifting themselves and their communities. We, therefore, give effect to this empowerment objective through programmes that focus on skills development, training, education, community outreach and through running the SAS Enterprise Development Programme.
Through cooperation and collaboration with our stakeholders (government, private sector and other non-profit organisations) we develop and support projects that empower people, businesses and communities to be economically and environmentally sustainable.
