Total Nigeria has said it has empowered about 90 Nigerian youths since it started its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme in 2008 for its host communities.
The managing director who made the disclosure Thursday in Kaduna during the presentation of starter packs to the skill acquisition program beneficiaries of the 2016/2017 batch who numbered 20, said, “our societal approach to CSR aims at building strong relationships with our stakeholders through structured and constructive dialogue, and addressing the identified needs from our shared perspectives.”
He said, the essence is to help better the understanding of the host communities expectations and where legitimate meet them, stressing that “capacity building provides more sustainable contributions to economic and social development of people and communities, than support to investments or running cost. It is on this premise and in line with our Group policy on support to local and socio-economic development, that Total Nigeria Plc deployed the Skills Acquisition Program (SAP) in its host communities which includes Kaduna” he said.
