Sustainability & Corporate Social Investment
2. Environmental Management
Under the UN Sustainable Development Goals, SDG number 15 addresses the need to sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, halt & reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss. HELB will support efforts towards environmental stability, by engaging in conservation activities agreed upon from time to time as well as any other activity deemed to support financing of higher education, managed funds or potential partners to come on boards.
3. Charity Work
In the spirit of participating in the communities we work and live in, HELB has also considered undertaking charitable activities that include visiting children’s homes, visiting the terminally sick and donating products
that may be deemed needed at the time of the visit as well as sponsoring and participating in any other activity deemed to support financing of higher education, managed funds or potential partners to come on boards.
In the table below are the CSR activities the Board conducted in the 2017/2018 Financial Year.
For the 2017-2018, the Board participated in seven CSR activities Out of the seven events, three focused on Education Pillar (Thika School for the Visually Impaired, Don Bosco Boys and Zabibu Education Centre), two on
Health (StanChart Marathon and Mater Heart Run); and two on Environmental Pillar (Ngong’ Tree Planting and Ndakaini Half Marathon).
