Valentine’s day may have come and gone but the lingering impact on the children at Modupe Cole Memorial Home and Treatment would be remembered for a long while.
During the event, the children of the home had a great time, as they had fun interacting with the team at Uber, getting on the bouncy castles, listening to musical performances and having a lot of goodies to eat and drink.
Uber had used this year’s valentine Day celebration as a point to give back to the community.
The corporate social investment drive involved the team at Uber in Nigeria, painting specific sections of the school, making slight renovations, hosting a musical variety show and providing the children of the home with lots to eat and drink.
Uber General Manager, West Africa, Lola Kassim maintained that Uber is committed to Africa, and as “We continue to grow our business on the continent we want to make sure we are supporting our local communities as well as providing much needed economic opportunities. This year we partnered with Executive Initiative to bring even more impact to the children of the Modupe Cole Memorial Home.”
Also speaking, Uber Marketing West Africa,Margaret Banasko said, “The #UberforLove valentine campaign drive began a week prior to valentine’s day. The activities that we outlined for the children of Modupe, Uber passengers also got involved by being encouraged to ride via a special ‘#UberforLove’ view. ”
