Cable & Wireless Foundation goes north to Silhouette
The Cable & Wireless Seychelles Foundation has travelled the seas to go that "extra mile". Under the slogan "A helping hand for a stronger community", the Cable & Wireless Seychelles Foundation has endeavoured to do just that, lend a helping hand in areas of need. Since its launch in March this year, the Foundation has made significant contributions, mostly in the form of donations in kind, to several projects on Mahe, Praslin and La Digue. Looking to reach out even further, the Foundation identified the new Silhouette School and its people as a fundamental part of the social development of our country. On Friday 14th October, a donation comprising of educational books and toys was made during the official opening ceremony of the Silhouette School. Mrs. Merida Delcy, Director for Non-formal Early Childhood and Primary Education was on hand to receive the donation on behalf of the school from Mr. Usman Saadat, CEO Cable & Wireless Seychelles. The Foundation, a couple of months back, had already donated a number of kitchen utensils and items, including fridges and rice cookers for the school. Usman Saadat, the CEO said: "The children on Silhouette also need our support, so through our Foundation, we have made this donation with the hope that it will help improve their quality of life and inspire them with hope and positive energy. The school requested the items we have donated and we are delighted that we have been able to help."
