HAVEN HELPING HANDS
Written by Banky W
Late final 12 months, I pitched an initiative known as the “Haven Helping Hands Foundation”to our shopper @thehavenhomes. They had been already extraordinarily profitable in the enterprise of offering Luxurious-but-affordable houses(I’m grateful to be constructing one with them myself) however my hope was to have the ability to persuade them, that with EACH new housing improvement they launched into, they’d give again to society by taking over the duty of refurbishing a pair of houses for households in want. I wasn’t positive in the event that they’d go for it. I imply, as their company, EME was imagined to be suggesting methods that will assist drive gross sales, enhance income and cut back prices… but right here I include an concept that will make them SPEND more cash, versus saving/making extra.
Seems they completely cherished the concept, as that they had already been internally debating about what sort of CSR they may do for some time. Little did I do know that as a substitute of simply serving to a household or two like I hoped, MD /CEO, Mr Tayo Sonuga, was going to recommend that we kick off on a a lot greater stage.
Right this moment, I’m soooo joyful to have the ability to say that the 88 kids dwelling at “Residence of God’s Grace” Orphanagein Ikorodu, are sleeping much more comfortably, because of the superb work achieved by the Haven Helping Hands Foundation. The work was in depth – constructing renovations, a model new borehole for clear water, New bunk beds with particular person wall followers, new bogs with trendy showers, and so on – it took a substantial quantity of time, vitality, and assets, however it was fully value it to see the seems on the faces of the kids after they moved into their new house.
I actually imagine that nobody particular person can repair each single downside there’s in Nigeria… however every of us can repair SOMETHING. All over the place you flip in this nation, there’s want, and lack, and poverty… in each single metropolis and each state, there’s struggling. To ensure that us to see true, lengthy lasting enhancements, we every have a duty to do what we are able to. It could actually’t simply be about pointing fingers on the Authorities, we should play a component in the progress we need to see.
Nigeria has many deep, advanced and troublesome points but unresolved… however right now, I need to recognize the superb staff at @thehavenhomes for making a small half of it just a bit bit higher, by caring for these kids sufficient to do one thing about their dwelling scenario. I additionally hope this evokes many extra of us – we should care sufficient to do what we are able to. If we actually need Nigeria to be higher, we should repair it ourselves.
