Project implementation

Acronis employees will embark on a trek to one of the remote villages of Malawi to do hands-on work building the community’s new school. It is challenging work, but in the process we hope the participants will discover cross-cultural exchanges and explore new horizons while working alongside local communities.

We encourage the local communities to participate and complete the building project, helping to ensure sustainability and commitment.
