Speech by CEC Company Secretary, Julia Chaila, at Handover of School Shoes Donation to Riverain Combined School
The CEC Ladies, in celebration of International Women’s Day, made a donation of school shoes to the children of Riverain Combined School in Kitwe, Zambia. The donation was motivated by the empathy that the CEC Ladies have for the children who walk to school barefooted or with barely covered feet, which can be dangerous and unsanitary. The CEC Ladies believe that education is the most important thing that can be given to children, and improving education opportunities is a catalyst for a better life for individuals, communities, and society at large. The donation of school shoes is one of many social impact initiatives that the CEC Ladies have participated in to give back to the communities around them and to better the quality of life for those who are needy and vulnerable.
