The Fund prides itself in being a good corporate citizen and socially responsible, through several social and community initiatives. From our perspective, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a commitment to ensure promotion of social and environmental well- being of the communities in which we do business while pursuing their financial stability.
Our CSR interventions make a deliberate attempt to develop and build the very basics that support a decent life within our community. The Fund's CSR interventions focus on the disadvantaged persons within our environment and the donations target groups and not individuals.
The Fund's approach to CSR is three-fold;
- Building Partnerships – We undertake collaboration and build partnerships with credible local institutions and communities for our CSR interventions.
- Good corporate citizenship – This is premised on the view that the Fund has a role to play in sustainable development and well-being of the community in which we do business, by taking responsibility for our actions that impact communities.
- Corporate philanthropy – From time to time, the Fund gives back to the community in form of ad hoc contributions to support worthy causes.
AREAS OF FOCUS
The youth form a significant proportion of the Fund's membership and majority of potential future membership. The youth further form a significant section of the student population who are potential Fund members.
There is need to access quality education especially for the disadvantaged groups in the communities. Provision of quality education entails various aspects of the system, from which we identify specific areas to focus.
The need for health services has become more critical as many of our members and the communities in which we do business can hardly afford it.
4. The Disadvantaged
These include categories of the community that are disadvantaged, for instance, the elderly groups, people with disabilities, the orphaned in society.
