Cable & Wireless Seychelles Foundation working for A Greener Seychelles!
As part of its ongoing activities, the Cable & Wireless Seychelles Foundation has once again stretch out its hands within the community. Last year, being the inaugural year of the Cable & Wireless Seychelles Foundation, the main focus was on "Our Youth". This year however, the Foundation is spreading its activities within the community. With the main aim of continuing to deep-root the Foundation into the Community through specific, pre-defined initiatives backed by the active involvement of the Cable & Wireless Seychelles workforce, on Saturday 26th of August, the first in a series of such activities took place. The managers of Cable & Wireless got together and participated in a ‘Beach Cleaning’ activity organised in collaboration with SWAC. This event took place at the Anse Marie-Louise beach and although it rained, this did not stop the team from putting their efforts in keeping our environment clean. The day which started at 9 in the morning came to end at 12 noon. Commenting on the event, the CEO of Cable & Wireless Seychelles, Mr. Usman Saadat who was also present on that day said: "Tourism is a key sector for the Seychelles and clean beaches go a long way in making sure that valued tourists have a pleasant stay here. Our team worked hard and I want to thank them for showing leadership for a good cause. Our thanks also go to the SWAC team." Under the slogan, "A helping hand for a stronger community", the Cable & Wireless Seychelles Foundation is focused on actively contributing in the strengthening of communities in which the company lives and works. Throughout the year, a combination of donations, sponsorships and active involvement of employees in a number of community-based activities will be utilized to make the Foundation more visible and allow employees to be and feel part of the value that the Foundation brings to the community.
