CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
PHILANTHROPY AT PREMIER ACADEMY
The word Charity easily resonates with the Premier Academy community. Charity constitutes the social conscience of the school. Our school vision clearly gives the key reason for our existence; to produce ‘model citizens of the world’. A model global citizen must be compassionate, sensitive and empathetic to the needs of others. Our charity is geared towards improving access to and quality of education for the less fortunate. We aim to lift the hopes, spirits and dreams of underprivileged children. An educated child benefits not just him/herself and their family but the wider community. It has been said that educating a ‘girl-child’ is educating a society.
In the furtherance of this cause, the school sets aside Term 1 of every academic year for charity fundraising activities which has seen tremendous growth over the years. The school also dedicates a full time club, the Premier Outreach Club (POC) to organize charity activities. This is one of the most popular and visible clubs among our other vibrant clubs and societies.
We have supported numerous students through secondary school education. Some of them are now studying in National Universities. We have fenced schools, donated books, water piping and tanks, equipped hostels, set up computer labs, built and repaired classrooms and fed hungry pupils just to mention a few. Currently our main project is construction of classrooms and providing piped water to Nonisikitok Primary school in Kajiado County.
We call upon individuals and institutions of goodwill to support and help us accelerate the spreading of this worthwhile endeavor which is also the core of the UN Millennium Development Goals.
