Great Nigeria Insurance Plc, one of Nigeria’s foremost insurance and financial services provider, as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), recently donated educational learning kits to pupils of Wesley Schools 1 & 2, Surulere Lagos, for the hearing impaired.
Speaking during the official presentation of the educational materials to the schools, the Executive Director, Business Development of the company, Mrs. Roselyn Ulaeto said that one of the pivotal forces on which Great Nigeria Insurance Plc’s Corporate Social Responsibility initiative is hinged on includes giving back to the community within which it operates.
“There is no be better way of being a socially responsive entity than to assist in community development by empowering the lower class and the physically challenged to help actualise their potentials,” she said.
She noted that the children who already are at a disadvantage due to no fault of theirs must be assisted to ensure that they learn valuable educational and vocational skills which in turn would make them independent and capable of leading normal lives as responsible citizens.
Mrs. Ulaeto commended the Principal, Teachers and other members of staff of the Wesley Schools 1& 2 for their humanitarian efforts in ensuring that the students have the best education available to them. She conclusively admonished the staff not to relent in their dedication and commitment towards improving and supporting the pupils.
The Executive Director was accompanied during the presentation by the Corporate Communications & Brand Manager, Ms. Sobande Oyinkansola, who stated that Great Nigeria Insurance Plc is uncompromisingly committed to providing support in those critical areas that could make or mar the progress of the society.
“As a responsible and responsive corporate citizen, we are willing to consistently offer a helping hand to those in the society who need the support to become better citizens and to continue contributing positively to the advancement and growth of the society,” she added.
In his appreciation remarks while receiving the educational materials on behalf of the staff and pupils of the Schools, the Principal, Alimi Kehinde thanked the Management of Great Nigeria Insurance Plc for putting smiles on the faces of the pupils and for always supporting the schools and more importantly, the pupils, through the provision of educational materials to enhance their learning.
He beseeched other corporate organisations to emulate this laudable gesture so that together, everyone can make our society better.
