In marking World AIDS Day, the 2022 Corporate Social Responsibility event was held at Cottolengo Children’s Center on 30th November. The CUK management organized the visit in collaboration with the Student Governing Council through the office of the Dean of Students, Dr. Lucinda Mugaa. The institution’s CSR efforts were identified by the dean of Students, who was present at the day’s activity as an endeavour to fulfil the Biblical call to help those in need and as a way of doing what is ethically and morally right.
The CSR activity was officially convoked by the Dean of Students, who represented the University Management and congratulated the staff and student fraternity for their contribution to the day’s success. “The Co-operative University of Kenya recognizes with benevolence the need for giving back to society through supporting the needy and vulnerable. With regard to this and utmost observance of human dignity, the University engages in corporate social responsibility with the aim of empowering the community sustainably,” Dr. Lucinda stated.
The students, led by the SGC President Collins Brandon and Zamzam Bonaya, the Deputy President SGC, participated in cleaning exercises that included laundry, mopping the floors, and tidying the compound of the Center. This was a true gesture of generous concern for one another beyond any possible boundary. Through Sr. Ann, the leadership of Cottolengo Children’s Center appreciated the CUK fraternity’s gesture of love for society and one another.
