Lagos, Nigeria, September 2023 – FBNQuest, the investment banking and asset management business of FBN Holdings Plc, recently partnered with Teach for Nigeria (TFN) to deliver a charity walk to support education for underprivileged children.
Teach for Nigeria is a non-profit organisation committed to developing leaders and promoting educational development across the nation by recruiting graduates and professionals to teach in under-served schools as full-time teachers. The walk was organised as a fundraiser to support the provision of academic fees for students in underprivileged communities in Nigeria.
Access to education is critical for social and economic empowerment, and, unfortunately, financial limitations prevent many children in our community from being educated. The Walk allowed employees to unite to support deserving children and their right to education.
Commenting on the charity walk, Funke Shobanjo, Head, Strategy, Transformation, People and Brand Management at FBNQuest, stated, “Every child should have the opportunity to acquire the knowledge and skills that will improve their future. She emphasised the importance of education as a catalyst for growth and development and reiterated the organisation’s commitment to equipping young people with the necessary skills to excel”.
“Our ultimate objective is to provide young leaders with enhanced access to opportunities that will contribute to establishing a stable economy. We firmly believe that strategic partnerships are crucial in attaining this objective. The proceeds from the walk will be utilised solely to support underprivileged children in dire need of educational assistance”. She added.
FBNQuest is dedicated to supporting and enabling education in Nigeria through its education investment products. These products, such as the FBN Education Endowment Plan and Children Education Trust, are designed to secure the future of young adults. Additionally, FBNQuest participates in various initiatives focused on knowledge and skills development, people empowerment, and financial literacy to build future leaders.
