The Nigerian Breweries (NB) Plc, on Thursday, inaugurated a block of five classrooms and six toilets at Local Government Education Authority Primary and Junior Secondary School, Nasarawa II, Kaduna.
The Managing Director, Mr Jordi Bel while handing over the renovated facilities in Kaduna, said the gesture was part of the company’s corporate social responsibility aimed at improving the learning environment.
Bel, represented by the company’s Manager in Kaduna, Mr Abbey Ajayi, said that the intervention was in recognition of the importance of education to the development of any society.
He noted that without a good environment, learning will be stressful.
“We are handing over five newly renovated classrooms and six toilets renovated by Nigerian Breweries as the company’s contribution to a better education environment.
“This is one of the many interventions executed in line with our philosophy of “winning with Nigeria”, and a demonstration of our unwavering commitment to the developmental aspirations of the people of Kaduna State.
The project is also an addition to several other projects executed in the last ten years across states in Northern Nigeria for the benefit of our immediate host communities.
“This is in line with our corporate social responsibility goal of being a responsive and distinguished corporate citizen of the states where we do business,” he said.
Bel said that the money used for the project was from the trust fund the company established in 1994 to enable it to play a more active role in the development of education in the country.
