From the outset it was important to the Directors of FSL that our programme of Corporate Social Responsibility be inclusive and driven by willing staff members. The presentation of the project, to support the technical department at the Bethany School in Bekoji Ethiopia, found more staff supporters than anticipated. The FSL Charity Committee was subsequently formed from a group of enthusiastic staff brimming with ideas.
The FSL charity committee are now assessing requirements and planning their approach to the technical classroom fit out project. To better understand the requirement, several FSL staff are preparing to visit Bethany school, whilst the technical team have been assessing the most appropriate equipment to supply. They are currently visiting their doctors for a number of essential vaccinations prior to travelling to Ethiopia.
There is a long way to go and the outcome will inevitably be different from what we imagine. There is so much learning to be done and many problems to overcome, but this is a journey that we wholeheartedly take. Any success will make a huge difference.
