WEC considers Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) to be a moral responsibility rather than a contractual obligation as it builds a legacy for generations to come. Our CSR programmes are focused on providing assistance and uplift to communities in the areas in which we operate, especially in remote rural locations in Ghana and throughout Africa, wherever we operate.
We seek to support and promote education-based CSR initiatives as we all understand the importance of good and proper education which is key to every person making a better life for all of us. Connecting with our communities surrounding where we operate helps to relieve loneliness and boosts morale especially during this difficult time of COVID.
We pray that God may continue to bless WEC and all our much-valued clients who enable us to touch and improve so many lives through these very special CSR initiatives.
As COVID-19 continues to impact the global community and Ghana, I want to reassure you that as a company we are prepared. We are continually monitoring and responding to the situation, always ensuring first and foremost the health and safety of our employees, clients and partners.
