Why CSR?

Buildafrique Consulting Group believes in creating Significance to the larger society and to its stakeholders through integration of socio-economic, environmental, ethical human rights, and community well being into its business agenda and strategic goals, in line with the Purpose Statement of the Organization.

Our Organization’s Corporate Social Responsibility agenda involves the following:

  1. Integration of Corporate Social Responsibility into education and training sponsorship programmes for less fortunate and orphaned children of our society.
  2. Mentorship programme to the needy children and students who go through our education sponsorship programme.

In line with this, Buildafrique Consulting Group has managed to extend its CSR agenda to needy and orphaned children of Kenyan society, through secondary and tertiary education sponsorship programmes since the year 2013. We have partnered with Good Samaritan Children home in Mathare, Nairobi over the years to provide secondary education sponsorship programmes to orphaned and needy children.

The following are some of the needy stories we have had the privilege of extending our corporate social responsibility since the year 2014:
