Stocks in this article: WNS

WNS (Holdings) Limited (NYSE: WNS), a leading provider of global Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) services, has been recognized with the prestigious Asia Responsible Entrepreneurship Award (AREA) for Social Empowerment, for 2012 - 2013. WNS, through the WNS Cares Foundation (WCF), was given this award based on its work in helping empower individuals or communities that are disadvantaged or discriminated against. The recipients must have a clear “Social Empowerment Mission” and must have programs and projects in place that support this mission.

"WNS is committed to a culture of corporate social responsibility, and to creating a sustainability footprint that transcends generations,” said Keshav R. Murugesh, Group CEO, WNS. “WCF is working relentlessly towards taking education to the underprivileged communities of those countries where WNS is present as a business entity. We believe that our mission to “Educate, Empower and Enrich” will empower not one but many generations of the future. It is an honor and a privilege to be the only BPO winning the ARE award this year,” he added.

Since inception in 2011, the WNS Cares Foundation has touched the lives of almost 30,000 beneficiaries worldwide. The geographical reach of WCF spans nineteen cities across the globe, including programs in Costa Rica, India, North America, The Philippines, Romania, Sri Lanka, South Africa and the UK. While WCF has customized projects and programs for each of its international locations, the common thread that runs through all its programs is to give every child an equal opportunity in this world. WCF aims to create a better and sustainable future for underprivileged children and youth. WCF also imparts education in its holistic form and not just academic knowledge, thereby equipping children and youth with real-life skills.

Enterprise Asia’s Asia Responsible Entrepreneurship Awards program (AREA) recognizes and honors Asian businesses for championing sustainable and responsible entrepreneurship in the following categories: Green Leadership, Investment in People, Health Promotion, Social Empowerment, SME CSR and Responsible Business Leadership.
