Corporate Social Responsibility
Our goal is to make a positive impact on the world around us and elevate our corporate giving to ensure our support is reaching the people who need it most.
ZEP-RE’s contribution to education in Kenya started with our adoption of Farasi Lane Primary School. For over seven years, focused on improving this co-educational council school, which was in dire need of assistance.
Our support has resulted in:
- A new, fully stocked library,
- A greenhouse that provides vegetables to learners,
- New desks and chairs for the final year class, and
- School uniforms for all learners.
Our aim is to make school fun and enjoyable for the children, the majority of whom come from less privileged homes, with the aim of improving educational performance.
Global Give Back Circle
Global Give Back Circle (GGBC), managed by Kenya Community Development Foundation (KCDF), helps at-risk girls realise their leadership potential and become change-makers. It also helps the girls gain the skills needed to acquire an established job so that they can break the cycle of poverty and contribute to their families and communities.
Since 2012, ZEP-RE has been a GGBC partner that sponsors a girl through college. We are currently supporting a land economics student at the University of Nairobi, and a food technology student at Eldoret University.
We have witnessed first-hand the positive impact this programme has had on the at-risk girls and their families. Through the programme, we have walked with our mentees and scholars from the first year at university to the final year, graduation, internship, and employment. ZEP-RE has also trained and welcomed with open arms some of our scholars into our workforce.
ZEP-RE Metenda Programme
In July 2022, ZEP-RE launched a mentorship programme for boys – ‘Mentenda.’ The programme is driven by ZEP-RE’s male mentors and coaches and is moderated by our partners and programme managers, KCDF.
As an organisation, giving back is ingrained in our corporate values, and we are excited that this programme is now live. Our volunteer mentors and coaches, from India, Kenya, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Uganda, and Tanzania, will work closely with 250 boys in an intensive and impactful programme that we believe will ultimately transform them into exceptional young men.
