Airtel Kenya coastal sales team recently participated in this year’s Dear Diary Initiatives Kenya Go-Kart Family Fun Day Fundraiser event. The event blended CSR activity where the team donated food stuff to the disabled. The team gave monetary support towards the event and also participated in the Race where they emerged 4th out of the 7 teams.
While congratulating the coastal team for their support, Airtel Kenya CEO Adil El Youssefi said, “I am delighted at the team’s participation in the occasion. This is commendable and I am sure that the children appreciate the love and kind gesture. As employees of a responsible corporate entity, we also look for opportunities to touch the lives of people where we operate. To actualize this objective, we have set up an Employee Volunteer Scheme which will be the vehicle that will help us reach out to the community. This is one of such efforts and we expect more from our staff.”
Mr. Youssefi added that the Airtel Employee Volunteer Scheme would continue to look for opportunities to make positive impact in the Kenyan society.
Airtel team’s support and participation was received with much appreciation by the students, parents and the event organizers and asked more corporates and individuals doing business in the region and across the country to take the example set by Airtel. Speaking at the event, The Dear Diary Initiatives Kenya Co-founder Peter Kwame thanked the Airtel coastal team for the visitation and donations, saying that it was always reassuring to know that despite other responsibilities, the employees still found the time to extend love to the family.
The Dear Diary Initiatives Kenya is a community based not for profit making campaign that was established in 2011 to advocate for the rights and welfare of people living with disabilities. It was founded by Nafisa Khanbhai, a physically challenged lady with a passion to ensure that the disabled are handled with dignity and not sympathy.
