GIVING BACK TO THE SOCIETY BY SENATOR KASHAMU

  • GIVING BACK TO THE SOCIETY: THE KASHAMU EXAMPLE

 

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is an initiative that businesses assume in order to give back to the communities in which they operate.

In the same vein, responsible individuals give back to the society as a way of showing love, appreciation and wealth distribution in their sphere of influence or immediate environment and beyond.

Giving back takes the form of interventions in the socio-economic well being of the people in areas such as health care, education, infrastructure, etc.

Not all wealthy individuals or businesses, for selfish or other reasons, seek to touch lives or champion the CSR initiative. However, those who do impact positively on their host communities and/or the beneficiaries.

 

In as much as it is common practice for individuals and businesses to restrict their personal or CSR interventions to their host communities, Senator (Prince) Buruji Kashamu (SPBK) has extended his personal and business interventions beyond his immediate environment, touching the lives of people he does not have anything to do with and may never  meet in his life time. This practice is highly commendable and worthy of emulation.

 

It is indeed outstanding to see a man who does business with a human face. He has also brought this trait to public service. The well-being of the people, especially the masses is his primary concern. He is compassionate and selfless in dealing with people who are not in a position to reciprocate his kind gestures towards them. Of a truth.
