Our Founders have always advocated the need to work towards a goal that extends well beyond just financial success. They believe that money is just a by-product when people work towards creating a lasting change in the world. These ideals have grown to become the lifeblood of the RYTHM Foundation, the social impact initiative of the QI Group.
RYTHM Foundation invests in the communities in which we operate through strategic partnerships, employee volunteering, and community service. The Foundation is guided by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which provide the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all.
The QNET family is bound together by the concept of RYTHM:
Raise Yourself To Help Mankind
RYTHM is an inherent part of QNET’s DNA
QNET Employees donate a minimum of 16 hours to volunteering in their local community. These volunteering initiatives range from beach cleaning and tree planting to food distribution to the homeless, helping with cleaning and painting homes for the elderly, and working with children, especially those with special needs.

OUR FOCUS AREAS
All our efforts towards helping the communities in which we live and do business in, fall under three major areas aligned with the SDGs.
EDUCATION FOR ALL
We believe that education is the catalyst for social transformation. Every child must be given equal access and opportunity to knowledge and learning to unlock their potential.
We believe that a progressive society is one where women and men experience equal opportunities across all levels.
SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT
We are vigilant about the economic, environmental, and social needs of the present without comprising the need of future generations, by supporting people, profits and the planet equally.
Every year, around
8 billion kilogrammes
of plastic waste enters the oceans
At QNET, we have decided to say
As of 2020 we have ceased the use of SINGLE USE PLASTIC in all our offices
We aim to go completely plastic-free by 2025!
QNET works closely with the RYTHM Foundation on a number of projects in developing countries around the globe to make a tangible difference in the local communities there.
QNET believes in not just writing a cheque, but getting involved and working towards sustainable change together.
