The acclaimed West Africa’s leading connectivity and data center solutions provider, MainOne, has given a boost to schools with its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative, reports ITRealms.
The initiative tagged Changing Lives… Impacting the Future (CLIF), ITRealms gathered, saw MainOne adopting Mayeigun Community Primary School and Gbara Junior Secondary School located in Jakande-Lekki, Lagos by lifting the school environment.
ITRealms reports that the company supplied educational materials and toys and beautified the environment by planting flowers around the premises and landscaping the schools.
According to Coordinator, Health, Safety and Environment at MainOne, Oluyomi Johnson, the CLIF initiative is part of the company’s efforts to positively impact education in Nigeria.
“The major thrust of our community engagement has been in the education sector. Since 2011, we have assisted various schools in Lekki, Ajah and environs, identifying their needs and exploring how we can provide for them. We plan to continue our support for schools across Lagos, renovating their facilities, providing them internet and educational materials and more importantly, volunteering the service of our employees” Johnson said.
Acknowledging the uplifting of the school, the Head Teachers of Mayeigun Community Primary School and Gbara Junior Secondary School, Mrs. Oyeyipo and Mrs. Fashola respectively, expressed their delight at the re-painted facilities and urged other companies to take CSR to schools more seriously.
ITRealms recalls that since 2011, MainOne has been supporting educational institutions in Nigeria with yearly donations of study materials including school bags, text and exercise books, and renovation of critical infrastructure facilities. The Company’s contribution to the development of these schools forms a part of its Corporate Social Responsibility focus in Education and Information and Communications Technology.
