COMMUNITY EMPOWERMENT AND DEVELOPMENT
Our main focus is creating sustainable partnerships with communities in ways that bring long-term impact and sustainable benefits to ourselves and those communities. Th e Group supports communities within the places it operates as part of its commitment to good corporate citizenship.
The Group’s community empowerment and development strategy is to ensure that the Group plays a critical role in empowering communities through economic opportunities within the Group’s business value chain that help alleviate poverty and contribute towards better conditions of life for the community and individuals therein. Th e Group supports corporate and social responsibility areas such as hospitals and health facilities, access to education for the disadvantaged, initiatives that reach out to many bodies as well as communities with its people in mind and with a view to sustaining long term benefit and sustainable impacts. We work with the disabled, orphans and senior citizens in improving their living conditions. Th e Group has committed to fostering areas in art, culture and sports around the communities we operate as well as supporting animal welfare. Our communities also include those communities within which our employees and their families live.
