Julius Berger Donates Books to School Library
As part of Julius Berger’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), the company donated over one thousand books to the LEA Primary School library in Jabi, Abuja FCT.
The books were collected as part of a community book drive, which was concluded in late 2012.
The community book drive was one component to the company’s CSR driven Literacy Campaign, which was launched in 2012 and included the initiation of a Julius Berger Book Clubs and the distribution of over 5,000 copies of the book “The Great Fall” by Nigerian author Chinyere Obi-Obasi, to chosen schools in Abuja, Lagos and Uyo. The Literacy Campaign was established with the goal of reinvigorating the reading culture in Nigeria’s youth, and further included writing workshops, tailored to improve the reading and writing skills of participating students.
