Bringing benevolence to life across the globe

Bringing benevolence to life across the globe

At the heart of Sahara’s business objectives, lies an unwavering commitment to promoting good corporate citizenship across the globe.

This is achieved through Sahara Foundation – the vehicle for the Group’s Personal and Corporate Social Responsibility (PCSR initiatives.

With a vision to promote activities targeting sustained (impact driven) societal wellbeing and touching lives through transformative partnerships, Sahara Foundation recently realigned its focus areas to 2 key pillars for all interventions going forward.

This was borne out of the necessity for the Foundation to take ownership of a particular space and align with Group’s vision.

Focus Areas

Our activities focus on initiatives that increase access to energy and promote sustainable environments, all geared towards the attainment of the SDGs in a manner that results in measurable social impact.

This will be achieved through the Extrapreneurship model. The concept involves creating value through leveraging internal and external strengths to drive cross-sectoral collaboration by connecting the right people and organizations towards providing sustainable solutions to global social problems. The core of the extrapreneurship framework is ‘to create a platform that finds, creates and connects young extrapreneurs in emerging markets’.

Access to
Energy

Promoting Sustainable Environments

Our environment focus is targeted at promoting sustainable practices for the preservation of the environment. Besides being a topical subject in global discourse, as it will be for decades to come, the environment is an important capital (asset) for business operations.

The centre consists of a 300-bed COVID-19 testing, isolation and treatment centre. The facility was also equipped with ventilators, x-ray and dialysis machines as well as a 54gene testing lab with a scalable 200 – 1000 tests per day.

We also provided food, face masks, hand sanitizers, oxygen and other relief materials to over one million beneficiaries in Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya and Tanzania.
