Lagos - A leading electronics company has been recognised for its role in empowering youths.

Samsung Nigeria won the accolades at the just-concluded Nigeria Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Awards where it was conferred with the Best Company in Youth Focused CSR award.

In addition, its Corporate Citizenship Manager, Abosede Modupe Alimi, was recognized as one of the top three CSR practitioners in the country.

Brovo Kim, Managing Director of Samsung Electronics West Africa said the company was humbled by this recognition but by the same token, understood the task ahead was bigger.

“We need to rise to the challenge and provide apt and innovative partnerships that will set Nigeria on the path to attaining the Sustainable Development Goals,” said Kim.

Alimi said the accolade represented a vote of confidence in our efforts to positively impact the lives of people, particularly the youth.

“Our goal has always been to address the felt-needs of the communities we operate in and this recognition will go a long way in inspiring the team to do more in ensuring that we change the course of Nigeria through sustainable corporate citizenship programmes,” said Alimi.

The awards, reputed to be the major force behind galvanising businesses across various sectors and industries in Nigeria to promote CSR and Sustainability in Nigeria, aims to acknowledge corporate entities who invest in society through CSR programmes.

For the Best Company in Youth Focused Award, Samsung was lauded for its sterling work and contribution to the lives of the Nigerian youth.

Among local projects, Samsung Engineering Academy has trained 118 young people, 40 percent of which are gainfully employed as a result of the training received.

The Digital Village placed in Cross Rivers State, has a significant number of young people who would potentially benefit from this project especially the Solar Powered Internet School.
