Promasidor Nigeria donates Hilux Van, Computer Equipments to OIPA
Lagos, Nigeria, 24 June, 2013: As part of its corporate social responsibility Promasidor Nigeria has donated a Hilux van and computer equipments to Orile Igamu Progressive Association (OIPA), and pledged continuous support to the development and empowerment of the youth in the community.
The managing Director of the company, Chief Keith Richards made the donation when the association’s OIPA Free Computer Training Institute held its 10th convocation and marked five years of consistent human capacity development in ICT technology in the Igamu community.
OIPA is an organisation that seeks to improve human existence within the entire community of Orile-Igamu through education, empowerment and enlightenment, creating an atmosphere conducive for resources to be generated and redistributed among people living in abject poverty within the community.
According to Richards, the company is highly honoured to be part of the ceremony and assured the association and the students that Promasidor will continue to support the initiative. He explained that what inspired him to Orile Iganmu and to OIPA were personal integrity and the strength of the people working in the organisation and how they have tried to develop their community and improve the blighted environment around them.
Richards noted that Promasidor, as a young company of 20 years, is trying to build up relationship in a bid to be close to the community by understanding the need of consumers in a given community. “We have always been a very socially responsible organization, so we are trying to engage with our host communities. In Isolo we have done something for the general hospital, improved street lighting, and helped in the provision of water and security. So Orile Iganmu is just one of them. We also work with communities around the federation, we try to work with people that have been impacted by disaster, those affected by floods in the middle belt and the south, we have worked with them, in Sokoto last year we worked with them. We are in Daura at the moment. So we are trying to engage with the communities that we work with as much as possible,” he said.
