Cedar Seed Foundation in partnership with Sahara Group launches the maiden edition of Inclusive Education to commemorate the 2014 Children’s Day Celebration.
Cedar Seed Foundation is a non-governmental, non-profit, non-sectarian, membership-based development organization that promotes the participation of women with disabilities into human right based development in Nigeria, while Sahara Group incubates companies primarily in the energy sector. These companies have their core fields of endeavor centered within the oil and gas industry and its associated sub-sectors. Sahara Foundation is the NGO through which Sahara Group exercise the Corporate Social Responsibilities.
Giving back to the society has always been a key commitment of the Sahara Group. As against making a show of our contributions to the development of society, their focus is on quietly touching lives that genuinely need help. In partial fulfillment of this commitment, Sahara Foundation was formally launched in Ghana, Cote d’Ivoire and Nigeria during the last quarter of 2013.
In commemoration of this year’s Children Day, Cedar Seed Foundation and Sahara Group came together to impact on the lives of physically challenged in the society. Wheel Chairs and other gift items including cash were given to this group of people.
