Hyundai Motors Nigeria Head of Sales and Marketing, Jatin Nadkarni, described the charitable initiative as a continuation of the Stallion Group Hyundai dealership’s magnanimity to support children of the less privileged in basic schools across the country.

Hyundai Motors Nigeria had in 2010 commenced amplification of support for the less privileged including inmates of old people’s homes and orphanages, where it had also canvassed halving populations of children vulnerable to malaria scourge, especially those aged between six months and five years, representing 52 percent of the country’s populace.

Nadkarni said: “It has become imperative to bridge the gap between children of the rich and poor particularly those in basic schools while stimulating the less privileged children to learn without fear of discrimination.”

He pledged Hyundai Motors commitment to influencing more children enrolment in basic schools through the provision of educational support materials such as school bags, exercise books, water bottles, pens/pencils and mathematical sets among others.

Quoting a recent Unicef report on basic education in Nigeria, Nadkarni said: “With children under 15 years of age accounting for 45% of the country’s population, the burden on education and other sectors has become overwhelming.”

He told the school children who congregated for photo shots after receiving their branded educational materials that “Hyundai Motors has come to greet you, spend time with you and bring you goodwill message aimed at encouraging you to embrace learning and don’t be intimidated by polarization which is the essence of this initiative; Supporting education for brighter tomorrow.”

Hyundai Motors has since dedicated substantial percentage of her earnings to corporate social responsibility particularly youth and sports development with education and healthcare.

The beneficiary schools’ head teachers applauded Hyundai Motors’ compassionate gestures and pledged their commitment to uplifting child development through enhanced learning.
