MainOne, West Africa’s leading connectivity and data center solutions provider, has again demonstrated its unflagging commitment to supporting its host communities by uplifting them, one school at a time. Under the umbrella of its Corporate Social Responsibility program tagged CLIF (Changing Lives… Impacting the Future), MainOne adopted Mayeigun Community Primary School and Gbara Junior Secondary School located in Jakande-Lekki, Lagos, elevating their environment.
The company supplied educational materials and toys and beautified the environment by planting flowers around the premises and landscaping the schools. 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.
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.
