Honeywell tasks youths on skills development
Honeywell Flour Mills Plc has tasked young Nigerians to channel their skills and energy to ventures that would be productive to them and the society.
This, the company noted, will go a long way in solving social vices and make them have a direction to realise their dreams by building a career.
Its Managing Director, Lanre Jaiyeola, stated this in Lagos during a youth basketball programme organised by former world star, Olumide Ayodeji.
He noted that the company would continue to focus its corporate social responsibility on activities that promote skill development among youth in realising the importance of youthful generation to the nation’s socio-economic development.
Jaiyeola, who was represented by Team Lead, Activation, Olufemi Adebayo, said, “At Honeywell Flour Mills, we are a socially responsible organisation. We support good causes, especially those that have to do with children.
“The company will try to support any good cause within our available resources, laudable causes that can take our country forward, help to develop our children in sports and in academics”, he said.
Besides, he said in efforts to make the society feel the company’s impacts, “we have made basketball a choice, not just to discover talents, but also to build talents.
“Beyond that, it is also to remove the youths from the streets, social vices and make them have a direction to realise their dreams by building a career.”
