 Great Nigeria Insurance Plc recently donated educational learning kits to the hearing impaired pupils of Wesley Schools 1 and 2.
The company said the donation was part of its social responsibility act to the school.

Speaking during the official presentation of the educational materials to the school, the Executive Director, Business Development of the company, Mrs. Roselyn Ulaeto, said, one of the pivotal forces on which Great Nigeria Insurance Plc’s Corporate Social Responsibility initiative hinges on includes giving back to the community within which it operates.

According to her, “there is no 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 noted that the children who were at a disadvantaged position, were so due to no fault of theirs, therefore 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.

Ulaeto commended the Principal, teachers and other members of staff of the Wesley Schools 1& 2 for their humanitarian efforts in ensuring that the pupils have the best education available to them. She admonished the staff not to relent in their dedication and commitment towards improving and supporting the pupils.

She was accompanied to the school by the Corporate Communications &Brand Manager of the company Ms. Sobande Oyinkansola.
Oyinkansola, said Great Nigeria Insurance, 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”.

 Receiving the educational materials on behalf of the staff and pupils of the School, the Principal, Mr. Alimi Kehinde thanked the Management of Great Nigeria Insurance Plc for putting smiles on the faces of the pupils and for always supporting the school and more importantly, the pupils, through the provision of educational materials to enhance their learning.

He appealed to other corporate organisations to emulate this laudable gesture so that together, everyone can make Nigeria a society better.
