MainOne, West Africa’s leading connectivity and data center solutions provider, has extended its Corporate Social Responsibility program tagged CLIF (Changing Lives… Impacting the Future) to two adopted schools where it deployed various educational materials and toys.
According to a statement from the firm, the gestures wasa demonstration of its unflagging commitment to supporting its host communities by uplifting them.
Through the MainOnes CLIF initiative, Mayeigun Community Primary School and Gbara Junior Secondary School located in Jakande-Lekki, Lagos were adopted to elevate their environment.
Apart from the supply of educational materials, various toys were deployed with beautification of the environment by planting flowers around the premises and landscaping the schools.
These were to aid cognitive and learning activities by making the atmosphere conducive.
The company’s Health, Safety and Environment Coordinator, Oluyomi Johnson, who led a team of employees to the school, explained the CLIF initiative as 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”.
While thanking MainOne, 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.
