Children home receives timely SEACOM donation

18 July 2014, 18:53

Nairobi - A children’s home in Ruai and a primary school in Mombasa will benefit from a project by a telecommunications company to give back to communities it operates in.

SEACOM, the pan-African telecom enabler will celebrate the fifth anniversary of its commercial launch, by donating time and providing support to communities that need assistance across the markets where it does business.

The SEACOM team in Nairobi intends to have the kitchen completed at the Watoto Wema Children’s Home in Ruai ahead of the weekend.

They have also committed to making a quarterly donation of cereals and basic medication to ensure the children are fed and cared for throughout the year.

The director of the home will receive a laptop, an internet dongle and personal contributions will be made by the team towards the internet use of approximately 1,5GB a month (Ksh1 000) by the home.

In their personal capacity, the Nairobi team members will also provide professional and spiritual development, including mentorship to the children and the staff.

The Mombasa team will be visiting Shika Adabu Primary School.

According to SEACOM, they will be donating textbooks and desks for the school as well as hosting sporting activities and mentoring sessions throughout the day.

“Doing something valuable with some of the communities we assist through our corporate social investment programme has become tradition for our annual Foundation Day. Once again, this celebration is a perfect platform for a range of community development activities in appreciation of the communities in the countries where we operate”, said Byron Clatterbuck, Chief Commercial Officer of SEACOM.

SEACOM launched Africa’s first broadband submarine cable system along the eastern and southern coastlines in 2009, bringing with it a vast supply of high quality and affordable internet bandwidth.
