Taking the Corporate Social Responsibility Challenge: Seremala Foundation

Seremala Foundation was established on the Christian Faith of the directors of Seremala Engineering and Construction Limited and is the basis of our giving. We believe that by reaching out and extending a helping hand to the orphaned and the widowed in our community, we touch the heart of God.

We were inspired to start the Seremala Foundation to give back in our community. By contributing what we can, even in the smallest way, we also contribute to the development of our nation and our country's vision 2030. We seek to stop the cliche that there are no homegrown solutions to the challenges of our communities in Kenya; that a difference can only be made by donors from developed countries or from the government. By doing what we can, we hope that a difference can be realized in the lives of those in our society who need it most. When each individual helps another in need, the ripple effect can be amazing.

Lastly we sponsor because we want our children and the children we sponsor to learn from us and catch the vision. We deliberately take our children along in meeting the students we sponsor as well as other activities of the Foundation; and involve them in our meeting with the children we sponsor to keep the legacy of Seremala Foundation going.

Isaiah 1:17: "Learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow's cause."

Seremala FoundationTaking the CSR Challenge

"We the directors of Seremala Construction & Engineering Ltd founded Seremala Foundation in March 2010 to reach out to the orphaned and the widowed. We work closely with Macheo Children's Centre in Thika who have outreach programs in the nearby Kinadutu slums . We are currently sponsoring 10 children through high school and 3 through college. We hope to increase this number as we carry out more fundraising activities"

Why do we sponsor?

  • Because when you reach out and help the orphaned and the widowed...you literally touch the heart of God!
  • Because we want our daughters, the children we sponsor, our staff and anyone else in our circle of influence to learn from us and catch the vision. We deliberately carry our daughters along and involve them in the foundation activities inorder to keep Seremala Foundation alive long after we are gone. 
  • Because we want Seremala Foundation to be the CSR wing of Seremala Construction & Engineering, educating the orphaned through high school, college and upon completion, providing internship at our company.
  • Because we want.... even in the smallest way to contribute to our country's vision 2030. We want to stop the mentality that a difference can only be made by donors from developed countries or from government. A difference can be made when each individual helps another in need....the ripple effect can be amazing.

Come join us in our various fundraising activities as we influence our society positively! "
