Stanbic IBTC Holdings Plc, a member of Standard Bank Group, has expressed commitment to making contributions to children’s lives in communities where it operates.

As part of its corporate social investment initiative, the financial institution’s marketing and corporate communications department renovated the SOS Children’s Villages, Social Centre, located at Isolo in Lagos State.

It said this in a statement on Friday titled ‘Stanbic IBTC continues to impact lives through CSI initiatives’.

Members of the department gave the social centre a face-lift with new wall paintings, sophisticated furniture, and donated an All-In-One computer to comfort the children in accessing the digital hub at their Ejigbo campus, it stated.

The bank stated, “The facility is home to over 300 youths and over 2,000 youths around Ejigbo will benefit from the upgraded space which includes a lounge, hub furniture and the all-in-one computer donated.

“SOS Children’s Villages is a non-governmental and non-denominational organisation that supports and provides for vulnerable children and young people who lack the required family care, protection and guidance.”

The Head, Marketing and Corporate Communications, Stanbic IBTC Holdings Plc, Bridget Oyefeso-Odusami, said that the organisation was keen on collaborating with reputable bodies such as the SOS Children’s Villages to foster the development of the nation’s younger generation.

“We believe the future is digital, and we are happy to have donated useful items to enable the youths to stay up to date with digital learning, so they remain relevant in these times,” she said.

She added, “At Stanbic IBTC, we are passionate about the wellbeing of our future leaders. As a socially responsible organisation, one of our major duties is to improve the quality of life of the needy in our society.

“This is what we aim to achieve through our corporate social investment initiatives.”
