Samsung Indian Ocean Islands takes its social responsibility towards the Mauritian public very seriously and has made a proactive commitment to the island residents in various domains.
The recent initiative taken by the tech major to donate audio-visual equipment to NGOs and initiate them into the latest technology illustrates this large-heartedcommitment by Samsung.
On the occasion of what Samsung haschristened the“Samsung Volunteering Day”, the employees of the company took time to explain and facilitate knowledge transfer of the latest technologies to the children through learning sessions on Samsung tablets and smartphones.
“Acompany’s success is measured not only by the fulfilment of its commercial projects, but also by the way it serves the community, protects the planet’s resources and plays a vital role in the life of the people. We take our responsibilities very seriously and try hard to act as a good citizen, to enrichsocieties world-wide, to protect the environment and to strengthen our communities. Accordingly,it was with great pleasure that we gave a few minutes of our time to these children. It was an enriching experience and a self-fulfilling commitment that we wish to renew in the future,” noted Navin Peerthy, Regional Director of Samsung Indian Ocean Islands.
The event, which took place in SOS Children Villages of Bambous, was marked by a series of fun activities such as ‘Face Painting’ and ‘Jumping Castles’, in course of which lunch, cakes and presents were offered to the children.
Samsung marked the event by giving away some electronic equipment, in particular Samsung Smart TVs, to add colour to the children’s environment and ensure a steady stream of entertainment.
Building on this positive step, Samsungplans to continue this type of commitment on part of its employees in the future. This enrichmentof society by partnering its members like a modern and responsible employer, is a central objective of Samsung Indian Ocean Islands.
