#TheSapientIMPACT: Our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Contributions in Nigeria (2016-2017)
We supported the following projects as part of our CSR contributions in 2016 and 2017.
Unreasonable Labs Nigeria, 2016
The Unreasonable Labs Nigeria 2016 was a 5-day Investment Preparedness accelerator bootcamp designed to help Nigeria-based ventures understand the fundraising process and become ready to take on investment.
Through this Lab, held on the 6th – 10th of June, 2016 young Nigerian entrepreneurs had access to empowering trainings that will sharpen their entrepreneurial skills and met mentors that will provide ongoing strategic guidance as they progress on their entrepreneurial journey.
Sapient Vendors was one of the sponsors of this event together with other corporate organizations such as Mercy Corps, Wilson Juice, MADphilips, Generation Enterprise, the Unreasonable Institute, Printivo and others. We are an entrepreneurial company that practices what we preach!
Ilaje Community Outreach, 2016
Ilaje is a sprawling slum located along the Bariga axis in Lagos, situated by the Lagoon. As you move closer to the settlement, you would immediately begin to see wooden houses constructed on that brackish water of Lagos lagoon.
In 2016, Sapient Vendors together with BellAfricana, 100+ effects, WlilsonsJuiceCo and the founder of DeeDee blog reached out to the ilaje community with charitable gifts. Details can be read here.
MTN 21 Days of Yello Care, 2017
From June 1 – 21, 2017, MTNers in 22 countries across Africa and the Middle East will take part in the 11th edition of a very worthy MTN tradition – 21 Days of Yello Care. This is an annual volunteerism initiative by MTN and have implemented for years with passion and pride.
