Nestlé Nigeria has launched a mentoring program for secondary schools powered by Nestlé
Cares, the company’s global employee volunteering program.

The mentoring program aims to reach over 10,000 JSS2, SS1, and SS2 students in public
secondary schools across the country with training on life values and life skills are delivered in
collaboration with REVAMP Africa, a youth-focused non-profit organization with the vision to
revive educational values and maximize potential among young people, especially in public
secondary schools.

Starting with over 1,000 students of the Ilupeju Secondary School, in Lagos, in July 2021, Nestlé Cares volunteers have extended the program to the Company’s host communities in
Sagamu and Abaji, reaching over 2,000 students at the Owode High School, Obafemi Owode in
Ogun State and at the Government Secondary School, Abaji over a 4-week period.

According to Victoria Uwadoka, Nestlé’s Corporate Communications and Public Affairs Manager, “Nestlé Cares, provides employees the opportunity to make an impact in local communities. It is a proven fact that good habits formed at a young age set the tone for a productive, successful future.

Through the Mentorship Program developed in collaboration with REVAMP Africa, we are happy to make a difference by helping young Nigerians in secondary schools to imbibe the
values that would equip them as a future generation of transformational leaders.”
“We are delighted to see how passionate our employees are to engage with the young people,
teaching them the benefits of having the right values. We also teach the youth how to handle
peer pressure, interpersonal relationships, time management, and goal setting. In addition, we
teach them the benefits of healthy nutrition which is key to a healthy life.

Speaking on the collaboration with Nestlé, the Founder, REVAMP Africa, Kelechi Anyalechi said, “We are a youth-focused non-profit organization with the vision to revive educational values and maximize potential among young people, especially in public secondary schools. We are raising leaders, who will transform their communities, country, Africa, and the world. We are always so inspired to see the turn-out of Nestlé employees which demonstrates their strong commitment to making a difference in society. In addition to Lagos, Sagamu, and Abaji, we will be extending the mentoring program to public secondary schools in Enugu, Port-Harcourt, Jos, Kaduna, Agbara, and Abuja reaching over 10,000 students in the coming months.”

Recounting her experience during the four weeks of the mentoring program, Akinwale Temitope, a student of SS1 C in Ilupeju secondary school said, “I learned a lot about values. The value that stood out most for me was humility, the quality of modesty. I also learned about setting goals, time management, and self-reliance. Thank you, Nestlé Cares and Revamp Africa, for the opportunity to learn.”

Commenting on the program, the principal of Ilupeju Secondary School Mr. Adeoye B.
Adebowale said “I want to thank Nestlé for coming to mentor our students, and for helping us and the government add value to the younger generation. Our mission is to be the foremost school where academics with high moral values are achieved. This mentoring program reiterates what we do and what we believe in.”

Victoria Uwadoka reaffirmed that Nestlé Cares Employee Volunteer Program will continue to provide opportunities for Nestlé employees to give back to society by offering their time, talent, and resources while impacting individuals and families, communities, and the environment.

In addition, this will be the second plant to be constructed by Wartsila for BUA Cement – the first being the BUA Cement Sokoto power plant scheduled to be commissioned alongside the plant in November 2021.

Speaking at the signing ceremony, Abdul Samad Rabiu, Chairman of BUA Cement Plc who signed on behalf of the cement producer said BUA Cement will continue to invest strategically in the West African Cement industry to enable it to bridge the huge infrastructure and housing deficit.

We believe Wartsila will bring the same level of efficiency, technical expertise, and professionalism to bear in ensuring that this new power plant for the 3million Mtpa BUA Cement Sokoto Line 4 will be completed on schedule by the end of next year as we look towards bringing BUA’s total capacity in its Sokoto plant to 8 million metric tonnes by early 2023 and 17million metric tonnes across all its plants by the same time.”
