CSS Attends Maersk Line Charity Event

CSS Dubai recently participated in the Maersk Line Corporate Social Responsibility drive, which organized an event to support 66 needy schools in the community of Saaba, Burkina Faso in collaboration with an NGO called Kologh Naba. Burkina Faso ranks amongst the poorest nations in the world and its community of Saaba is in dire need of resources in local schools to educate both children and adults. There are a total of 8,520 eligible students that we intend to support through this cause.

The fundraiser was held on December 7th 2012 at the Hyatt Regency Golf Park in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The fundraiser included food, games and entertainment for everyone. CSS contributed towards the noble cause by purchasing raffle booklets wherby all of the proceeds raised at the Maersk Line will be used to purchase educational items like stationery, books, school bags, clothes, foodstuff and for its transport to Burkina Faso. Commenting on the charity event, Ajay Krishnan, Senior Genreal Manager Ocean Freight said, “We are extremely pleased to generate a substantial amount to support this fundraiser and active participation from the staff at CSS and everyone involved was a true testament to make this event a huge success.”

ABOUT THE NGO-
KOLOGH NABA  

Kologh Naba» means «close to the chief» and is also the name of a small village which is part of the bigger village of Saaba, situated about 12 km ( 7.5 miles) east of Ouagadougou – the capital of Burkina Faso in West Africa. Founded by Else Traerup in 2001 and officially registered (granted non-profit status) in 2003, Kologh Naba currently involves  almost sixty Burkinabé members and has support groups in Europe.  The objective of “Kologh Naba” is to improve the living conditions of its members through vocational trainings offered to  the members during the winter months: sewing, weaving, soap making, carpentry, masonry and gardening. During the remaining months of the year, trainings are reduced because members must prioritize agriculture labor (sowing, weeding, harvesting, etc.).
