INTELS deepens CSR in Rivers, donates computers to Compassion Centre

Leading maritime logistics services providers at Onne FTZ, Rivers State, INTELS Nigeria Limited, has stepped up its caring and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) to the less-privileged in the society.

This time, the company has donated 12 fully operational computer systems with access to broadband internet to Port Harcourt based Compassion Centre.

The centre cares for less privileged children and checks by Business Hilights showed that already, the children of the Centre are currently undergoing training on Information Communication Technology (ICT), courtesy of INTELS Nigeria, to prepare them for a well-rounded future.

Business Hilights also gathered that the Centre, which has received series of support from INTELS in more than three decades, was established and managed by the Religious Sisters of Charity. It was set up as a home to support, educate and rehabilitate physically-challenged children in the society.

In an interview, a certified ICT Training Specialist at INTELS Training Academy, Ngozi Kingsley-Opara, noted that “We have successfully started the ICT training at the Compassion Centre. The management of the home has been expressing their heart-felt gratitude to INTELS. They are full of thanks for this social service rendered by our company and have promised to ensure that all their pupils take full advantage of this unique opportunity.”

Continuing, the expert averred that “while INTELS has been consistent in supporting the children’s home over the years, the latest donation of computers and free ICT training is a sure way of preparing the less-privileged children for a brighter future.

According to her, the children stand to benefit tremendously from the new computer centre and the knowledge of ICT in the course of their studies because the world of computers is packed full of useful information and new knowledge.

The INTELS ICT expert added further that “Students all over the world now use computers and the internet as a source of education. These days, there are several online programs and learning packages available to students to aid their study and learn more about their world right in the comfort of their homes. Our desire is to bring online libraries and other global learning resources at the disposal of the children. It is our belief that their physical challenges or humble backgrounds should not deprive them of readily available learning resources. They should not be deprived, by any means of the opportunity to belong to the future.”

Business Hilights gathered that INTELS holds the ICT training twice a month to cover all classes and children at the home and more children have been coming to the centre.
