The company’s effort in the area of Children’s education can also not go without mentioning. Fidson started its CSR programme with the Children Emergency Relief Foundation (CERF) in 2007 and in the last ten years has solidified its partnership with the Foundation by constantly extending scholarship schemes to less privileged and vulnerable children in Nigeria as part of its CSR focus.
This partnership recently brought about scholarship support by Fidson to pupils as well as health intervention programmes to other indigents of the Ikorodu community.
Fidson’s contribution to the care, educational development and general welfare of these children is in line with the company’s commitment to adding value to the lives of Nigerians, as expressed in its corporate slogan “we value lives”.
CERF is a faith – based non-governmental organization committed to the survival, protection, welfare, rights and relief and support of vulnerable children and by extension, their caregivers.
The donation has helped in no little way to secure the future of these children with life-enhancing opportunities that enable the advancement of their academic pursuits through access to quality education.
