CORPORATE CHALLENGE

The Corporate Challenge lends companies an opportunity to monetarily support an NGO of their choice on one hand and for their employees to participate in TSK25 2016 on the other hand. It is a category specially designed for companies who wish to sponsor employee teams to participate in the Event. Companies can choose from any of the NGOs listed with UWK for the Event, to donate the amount contributed by them. If the company’s preferred charity is not registered with UWK, UWK will assist the NGO in completing its registration formalities and thereby stand to benefit through its association with the Event.
