Q: Tell us about yourself (Name, background, interests and how long you have been with Sahara)

My name is Godwin Uchechukwu Uke. A native of Achi in OJI-River LGA of Enugu State, Nigeria. I am married with a kid (Wisdom Boy). I enjoy staying with my family & friends after work hours. I have a Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.) in Mechanical Engineering and am a Certified COREN Member. I have been with Sahara Group for the past four(4) years as a Mechanical and Pipeline Project Engineer. Currently deployed to Asharami Synergy Limited with my office at MMIA Ikeja Lagos State.

Q: What is your motivation for volunteering?

I always feel satisfied when rendering a helping hand to any project, vision, or anything that brings growth and development in the organization or environment where I find myself, regardless of the cross-functional nature. Sahara Foundation is a part of the central body where Asharami Synergy Plc also belongs, therefore, it is also a priority that Sahara Foundation succeeds in my jurisdiction just like every other subsidiary company. It gives me joy whenever am imparting knowledge to the younger generation, especially in academics.

Q: Describe your volunteering experience with the Sahara Foundation?

It has been a great experience with the Sahara Foundation, especially on the school visit program, My encounter with the students reminds me of the back old days in JET clubs.

Q: What contribution or achievement are you most proud?

Despite my tight schedule at work, I have been an active volunteer for the Sahara Steamers (Catch them Young) program in Secondary schools in Lagos and it gives me joy.

Q: What other organizations or causes do you support or volunteer for?

I volunteer and support the PCRC-Police Community Relations Committee in my area.

Q: Do you know about the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)? If yes, what do you think of them?

Yes, I know about the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Sustainable Goals are achievable with a collective effort from everyone including cooperative bodies and the Government. It is necessary as a multinational organization to give back to the society where we operate. This can be done by partnering with well-meaning organizations, country & continents to address the issues as found under the sustainable development goals, such as SDGs 4 – Quality Education, SDGs 5 – Gender Equality & SDGs 10-Reduced Inequalities, etc. This should be encouraged as much as possible.

Q: What do you think about Sahara Foundations new focus areas (Access to Clean Energy and Promoting Sustainable Environment)?

(Access to Clean Energy and Promoting Sustainable Environment)?- Clean Energy and promoting a Sustainable Environment is part of the Sustainable Development Goals(SDGs), and the Sahara Foundation has focused on this area is on the right direction. This will be a great way of giving back to society as an Energy Solution provider.

Q: What message would you like to share with others about volunteering?

Volunteering is a way to contribute and give back to our society, the reward for volunteering is innumerable and helps one develop various skills.
