NSE Bags Award For CSR Initiatives
The Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) says it has received a ‘Rotary Outstanding Invaluable Company Award’ from the Rotary International District 9110, Nigeria for its Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives.
The District Governor, Rotary District 9110, Mr Kola Sodipo, in a notification letter, said the award was bestowed on the NSE based on its “impactful Corporate Social Responsibility projects in the areas of education, health, economic and youth empowerment and environment, among others.”
He said the Rotary considered such initiatives invaluable in the service to humanity.
The award was presented to the NSE at the 2019 edition of the Rotary Friendship Night/Governor’s Magazine Launch/Awards, which hosted the Consular General of Germany in Nigeria, Dr Stefan Traumann, as the guest speaker.
The Head, Corporate Communications, NSE, Mr Olumide Orojimi, noted that the Exchange was committed to strengthening its engagements and deepening its impact through social interventions across Nigeria.
He said, “NSE is changing the educational outcomes of children in the North-East through the donation of Maisandari Alamderi Model Nursery and Primary School in Borno State.
“Through our community interventions in health, education and financial literacy across the country, we will continue to play our part towards realising the Sustainable Development Goals, thereby increasing the chances of achieving a better and more sustainable future for all”.
