MSIA brings businesses and philanthropists together to support local initiatives that have a positive social impact on Malta and help social purpose organisations grow into stronger entities.
"We believe in investing in initiatives that will have a lasting, positive impact on the local community and can bring transformational change to our society. By supporting platforms such as the ‘Malta Social Impact Awards’, we are glad we can contribute to making a difference for the community we are part of. Supporting changemakers and social entrepreneurs is not only a good deed, but it’s also an investment in the wellbeing of future generations and I hope we will inspire other businesses to join this initiative” - said Olga Finkel, Co-Managing Partner WH Partners.
