In continuation of its global employee volunteer month of service, Cadbury Nigeria visited the Vocational Training Centre of the Nigeria Society for the Blind in Oshodi, Lagos, with food and cleaned its classrooms. Speaking with journalists during the visit, Cadbury’s Managing Director, Mr. Roy Naaman, commended the management of the training centre for the good work they are doing as a group committed to make life better for the visually impaired.

He said, “Our visit comes at a very special time for Cadbury Nigeria, and our parent company, Mondelez International, because this is our company’s global month of service.

We do this each year as part of a celebration of our company’s founding, and it helps us live our company’s values – such as leading from the head and the heart.

“Giving back and working in our communities helps remind us that our business success is directly linked to enhancing the well-being of the people who make and enjoy our products and to support the communities where we grow our ingredients.” In his welcome address, Chairman, Executive Council of the centre, Asiwaju Fola Osibo, expressed deep appreciation to the Cadbury team for the kind gesture.

He added, “Today’s visit by the managing director and top Management of Cadbury is a major morale booster for us and we count it as a big opportunity in getting a multi-national company like Cadbury to consider using the Nigeria Society for the Blind Vocational Training Centre as their vehicle for community service. We are sincerely appreciative of this gesture.”
