#SpiritOfGiving: Empowering Nigeria`s Young Dreams

“First I’d like to say all of our children, Nigerian children, are special. They are special because the future of our nation belongs to them, and they have all that it takes to give our country a great future.” – Prof.Yemi Osinbajo, Former Vice President, Nigeria. Towards this endeavor, the Travelwings Nigeria CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) activity invests in quality education, making a positive difference for children and their future. Bringing in the company’s ninth anniversary in March, Travelwings dedicated the entire month to the #SpiritOfGiving with incredible projects, touching the lives of many. Here is one such heartwarming experience in Nigeria, West Africa.

#SpiritOfGiving: Empowering Nigeria`s Young Dreams

As a company, we understand that our prosperity is about the welfare and progress of the upcoming generations. It is a known fact that Nigeria’s education system struggles with problems related to insufficient funding and lack of adequate facilities. In an attempt to support and connect with young individuals, Travelwings Nigeria Branch Manager Mr. Bhavesh Punjabi and his team distributed educational resources during their visit to Abeokuta, Ogun State. The company provided 300 exercise books/textbooks, 10 soccer balls (to support the sports facilities), and 100 chairs/tables to the 100-year-old Baptist Primary School and the 80-year-old Lisabi Grammar School in Idi-Aba, Abeokuta. Children from both schools greeted the Travelwings staff, the organizer team (OLANB), and attendees with laughter and delight. The new school furniture and books resembled a canvas brimming with boundless potential.

Travewing Nigeria’s CSR initiative symbolizes an investment in quality education going beyond furniture and books. It ignites the flame of enthusiasm that promises to illuminate the learning journey for many generations. 

“This hand of love and fellowship from Travelwings is really appreciated and quite commendable because it will go a long way in making the children more comfortable while learning. It will help to decongest sitting arrangements of four or three pupils on a seat and make learning more interesting.” – Mrs. Christianah, Head Teacher of Baptist Primary School. Mrs Olufunmilayo Joseph, the Principal of the Junior Section of the Lisabi Grammar School, also lauded Travelwings for donating to the education sector.

In parallel, the CSR initiative alongside planted trees exemplifies a holistic approach and interconnectedness between education and environmental sustainability. The representatives of the company, supported by the staff and students of the two schools, went ahead with planting 20 coconut trees and 10 flower plants within the school compounds. This activity offered the children a firsthand experience of the importance of climate change and environmental stewardship.

By implementing CSR activities, we can contribute to educational development, improve lives, and make a positive difference. It was a day filled with infectious laughter, smiles of hope, and genuine happiness from the school children (March 22, 2024). #SpiritOfGiving
