By: Fred Yaw Sarpong

Enterprise Life and Sanlam South Africa together with SOS Children’s Villages Ghana have jointly inaugurated a newly constructed social centre at the SOS Children’s Village, Kumasi in the Ashanti region.

The project, valued at GHc485,000.00 forms part of Enterprise Life and Sanlam-South Africa’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) to promote quality education and health for vulnerable children in Ghana.

The newly established social centre provides a suitable multi-purpose facility with a spacious auditorium among others to host different social activities related to child growth and development and will cater for both SOS children and students of the Hermann Gmeiner School.

The centre also offers the beneficiaries the opportunity to freely socialize and participate actively in educational oriented activities such as school concerts, art exhibitions and workshops.

The Executive Director of Enterprise Life, Mrs. Jacqueline Benyi expressed satisfaction that her outfit and Sanlam-South Africa have been able to complete the project on schedule.

She mentioned that the “Advantage Hall” as the social centre is named, apart from serving as educational needs of the children, will also support their holistic growth in terms of learning and development opportunities beyond the classroom activities. “United Nation’s statistics show that currently there are over 1 million orphans in Ghana, and the numbers are increasing daily.

The potential of this 1 million, if harnessed well, under well structured programs like the SOS initiative, can only bode well for the country. Enterprise Life and Sanlam have realised this and can only hope that other companies will follow suit,” she stated. The National Director of SOS Children’s Villages Ghana,

Mr. Alexander Mar Kekula expressed his profound gratitude to the sponsors for their immense support for his organisation over the years.

“This is not the only project Enterprise Life has supported us with, and this is a genuine expression of their determination in partnering us to support vulnerable children to ensure that their education and psychological needs are met in due course,” he said.

Enterprise Life is owned by two financial giants – Enterprise Group, which is a leading financial services Group in Ghana with a vision to offer financial security from cradle to grave and Sanlam, a leader in wealth creation and insurance in Africa with presence in 11 African countries, India, Malaysia and niche businesses in certain developed markets.

As compared to other insurance companies in Ghana, Enterprise Life is a relatively young company but through its 15 years of existence has risen to become the leading Life Insurance Company in Ghana.

Apart from an excellent corporate culture and world class products, Enterprise Life is focused on improving the general wellbeing of its clientele and Ghanaian families as a whole and this is evidence in its solid Corporate Social Responsibility Culture driven by its core values of Friendliness, Professionalism, Reliability, Excellence and Trust.
