Sovereign Trust Insurance Plc has said it is partnering a Lagos-based non-governmental organisation (NGO), Teenage Life, on youth development in line with its Corporate Social Responsibility (CRS) initiative.
Speaking on the company’s contribution to youth development, the Coordinator of Teenage Life, Mrs. Jessica John Braimah commended the commitment of the Underwriting Firm in promoting youth mentorship in the country through the various programmes it has sponsored over the years.
She explained that the current initiative, which Sovereign Trust Insurance is supporting, is centered on educating the youths in the areas of governance, economic empowerment and social infrastructure development.
According to her, the role of the youths, is very critical to the growth and advancement of any nation which explains why special attention is given to youth mentorship in her organisation. She appealed to other corporate organisations to get more involved in youth administration issues in promoting a better society especially at this time when values are fast becoming eroded in the country for one reason or the other.
She described Sovereign Trust Insurance as a worthy brand that sets pace for others to emulate through its Social Responsibility activities.
“The intervention of Sovereign Trust Insurance Plc in supporting our ‘Life Encounters’ radio programme on a syndicated basis across the country testifies to the affirmation of the brand as a very responsive and trusted partner that can be relied upon at any given point in time. I am particularly grateful to the Management of Sovereign Trust Insurance Plc for its unflinching support of our programmes over the years and I hope to see more corporate organisations emulate such novel initiatives in finding a voice for our youths in the country.”
Also speaking at the event, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Sovereign Trust Insurance Plc, Mr. Olaotan Soyinka said his company towers high above its peers when it comes to issues of CSR.
