OLX gives back at Christmas

19 December 2016, 19:39

Lagos - The staff and management of OLX transformed the vocational section of  Modupe Cole Child Care by painting the walls and presenting the school with several gifts.

Speaking at the school, Lola Masha, Country Manager, OLX stated that one of the values at OLX is “Live It” which is not expressed only by staff selling items they no longer need on the OLX platform to make extra cash but also by helping and empowering the communities in which we operate. 

Masha also added that although it has been a very challenging year for everyone especially with the economic recession; we were determined to put a smile on people’s faces especially the less fortunate in our society which is why we opted to paint Modupe Cole who empower kids with disabilities with the skills to earn a living in the society.

Adeyemi-Cole also added that we are simply touched and wish other corporate organizations would emulate OLX to impact the communities they operate in  
Aside from painting the vocational section of the school and donating food supplies, OLX staff also patronized the students who make a wide range of accessories from key rings, hair clips, bangles, bags and lots more. The kids also learn carpentry, painting and hairdressing.
