As part of its long-standing commitment to support communities where it does business, Fidelity Bank Plc, one of Nigeria’s most capitalised banks has equipped the Information Communications Technology (ICT) Centre of Government Secondary School, Mabushi, Abuja. Working under the aegis of the Fidelity Helping Hands Programme (FHHP), one of the bank’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) vehicles, staff of Abuja 1 Bank financed the purchase of 10 brand new computers and provided 10 years unlimited internet access to the school. According to the lender, the provision of reliable broadband internet access is the foundation required to convey personalised, digital learning to every child in the country.

Speaking at the commissioning ceremony, Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, Fidelity Bank Plc, Nnamdi Okonkwo, said the gesture is strategically aimed at building the capacity of students, particularly on the use of modern ICT tools. According to the bank chief, the renovation of the ICT Centre is in fulfillment of the objectives of the Fidelity CSR practice which rests on a tripod: The Environment, Education and Health/Social Welfare. He pointedly noted that Fidelity Bank strives to reinforce robust, healthy community relations by identifying with host communities in activities that are most relevant to them.

“We play a leading role by identifying and seeking viable solutions to the problems of the society like youth empowerment, especially those in our immediate operational environment,” Okonkwo who was represented by the Regional Bank Head, Abuja 1 Regional Bank, Hassan Imam, said.

He explained that the country and humanity will be a better place when every citizen, be it corporate or individual, plays his role effectively, “We strongly believe in social advocacy. We also believe that we should not sit and wait for government to do it all alone. We have as a result, extended similar projects and initiatives to other states of the federation,” he stated.

Imam pledged the bank’s support on initiatives that encourage education at all levels through the deployment of strategic projects that enhance the quality and standard of education in the country.

Some of the projects the bank executed through the FHHP, include the renovation of facilities and provision of classrooms and hostel furniture at Zainab Dakingari Orphanage Home/School in Birnin Kebbi; construction of the Registry Block & Clinic Park Landscape in BSU, Markudi; renovation and equipping of Boys Correction/Academic Centre, Oregun, Lagos; renovation of Daniel Akintode School, Abeokuta; renovation of Home Economics Arts & Craft Centre, Ikota etc.
