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.

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! "
