Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, “If we encounter a man of rare intellect, we should ask him what books he reads”.

It is in keeping with this wisdom that Ikeja Electric, as part of her Personal Corporate Social Responsibility (PCSR), donated different set of books to various Primary schools under its network coverage areas including Abule-Egba, Akowonjo, Ikorodu, Shomolu, Ikeja and Oshodi. Commemorating World Book Day, a recognized yearly United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) event which holds every March 23rd, Ikeja Electric joined various governments, private organizations and individuals to donate books and encourage reading among children.

The uniqueness of this year’s event for us at Ikeja Electric was the collective interest of staff, who bought books privately and then donated same to the PCSR program. Hundreds of children across six primary schools benefited from the program and their happy faces as they received the books seemed like a just reward for a good cause.

Speaking to myIE correspondents’, one of the recipients of the book, who simply identified herself as Sade, said, “This is my first book gift this year. Books are costly so when I ask my mummy to (for me) buy she says she can only afford my school books for now. Thank you for this gift Ikeja Electric, God bless you”.

Commenting on why Ikeja Electric adopted the PCSR approach, Felix Ofulue, Head Corporate Communications, stated that Social Responsibility can only be sustained when there is personal commitment and participation. The PCSR approach helps us develop a work force that is both compassionate and responsible for social development in their host communities.

PCSR activities have been scheduled for the 2016 calendar year.
