Taking the Corporate Social Responsibility Challenge: Desking the "Undesked"

In keeping with our principle to give to those in our society less-privileged than we have been, Seremala Foundation contributed desks to a primary school in Amboseli.

During our visit to the area, we interacted with the area chief who cited to us the lack of basic school infrastructure as a significant contributor to poor access to education in the local community. Because we build, it seemed a natural fit for us to engage the community by providing some desks, a basic requirment for the community's childrens while they are in school. Together with our children, we visited one of the local schools to donate the desks. We called this project "Desking the Undesked. It is our desire to be able to impact society through what we do as a trade. For the students sponsored by the foundation who have completed school and have embarked on Technical courses, we want to offer apprenticeship opportunities through which they will gain technical competencies and hands-on-experience, that will in turn give them better access to the labour market and entreprenuerial skills.
