Honeywell Flour Mills Plc has tasked the youths to channel their skills and energy to ventures that will be productive to them and the society. This, the company noted, will go a long way in solving social vices and make them have a direction to realise a dream by building a career.
Managing Director, Mr. Lanre Jaiyeola who stated this in Lagos during a youth-based basketball programme organised by former world star, Olumide Ayodeji, noted that the company will continue to focus its corporate social responsibility on activities that promote skill development among youth in realising the importance of that age group to the nationâ€™s socio-economic development.
Jaiyeola, represented by Team Lead, Activation, Mr. Olufemi Adebayo said â€œat Honeywell Flour Mills, we are socially responsible organisation. We support good causes, especially causes that have to do with children. The company will try to support any good cause within our available resources, laudable causes that can take our country forward, help to develop our children in the area of sports, in academics,â€ he said.
Besides, he said in efforts to make the society feel the companyâ€™s impacts, â€œwe have made basketball a choice, not just to discover talents, but also to build talents. Beyond that, it is also to remove the youths from the streets, from social vices and make them have a direction to realize a dream by building a career.â€
