1,200 Host Communities Benefits from ALX Africa CSR Across Nigeria

 

ALX, Africa’s leading tech accelerator, embarked on a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative to enrich the lives of people in low-income communities across nine states in Nigeria, in a concerted effort to impact their host communities.

This impactful exercise saw ALX Learners and Fellows (graduates), actively engaged in various uplifting activities centered on three key activities: food relief, education and tutoring, and orphanage visits. ALX Community members in Abuja and Anambra State embarked on educational outreaches to secondary schools and universities. In contrast, members in Lagos, Enugu, Kaduna, Rivers, Oyo, and Imo states provided food relief.

Speaking at the food relief exercise at the Ilaje community in Costain, Lagos State, the Country Operations Manager at ALX Nigeria, Helen Eboagwu, highlighted the significance of this initiative, stating, “At ALX, we believe that our mission goes beyond equipping young people with the skills for a successful tech career. We are deeply passionate about the people and communities that host us. This initiative shows our commitment to giving back and making a tangible difference in the lives of those around us.

“The initiative shows ALX’s dedication to social impact and reinforces our core values of fostering a culture of empathy, leadership, and community service among our learners. By engaging in these activities, ALX learners gain invaluable life experiences and contribute to Nigeria’s socio-economic development,” Eboagwu emphasized.

As ALX continues to empower the next generation of tech leaders, the organization remains steadfast in its commitment to creating positive change and uplifting the communities it serves. This CSR initiative marks a significant milestone in ALX’s journey to make a meaningful impact across Africa.
