Social Issues

Social, sovaldi environmental issues

The Business Phone is keen to develop a social empowerment agenda alongside its core business, and has recently selected a preferred social enhancement project, sponsoring the Caretakers Nursery and Orphans feeding centre, a school run entirely by volunteers in the Korogocho slum district of Nairobi.

Opened in 2001, it provides an educational facility and a feeding program to orphans and other vulnerable children in the area, and presently has over 220 children under its care, many of whom are HIV-positive. The Business Phone will provide ongoing support in the form of essential materials, books, food, rent, and educational trips for the pupils and every member of staff will be expected to visit the school on a regular basis. Company shareholders are already responding in large numbers to an invitation to them to contribute on a regular basis.
