Online Retailer, Jumia Introduces CSR Initiative To Feed 1,500 Destitute Lagosians
In a bid to show its commitment to improve society, leading online retailer, Jumia Nigeria is introducing its CSR initiative called ‘Jumia feeds Lagos’, in order to extend benevolence to the less privileged and destitute in the society.
On Sunday, March 10, about 500 volunteers including Jumia staff, partners, and personalities from media, entertainment and all works of life would converge in Lagos to hand a new lease of life to the destitute in the society, the company said in a statement.
According to Jumia, the objective is to deliver a CSR project that will be aimed at feeding 1,500 individuals, with these numbers increasing every year. The company also plans to use the event as a platform to reach out to corporate organizations and other well-meaning Nigerians as to their importance and roles in alleviating poverty within our society.
Most importantly, it wants to empower these individuals with the belief that they can rise above their situations and be anything they want to be. The company also hopes to find skill and talent that could be useful to its operations in Nigeria.
The event scheduled to hold at the Okobaba Open Field in Ebute-Metta, Lagos promises to provide lots of fun, games and music as well as one-on-one interactions with the less privileged.
