Promasidor Congo supports Réseau des Intervenants sur le Phénomène des Enfants de la Rue, (Street Children's Support Network)
On November 20th, 2014, Promasidor's team in the Republic of Congo joined hands with the RIEPER organisation (Réseau des Intervenants sur le Phénomène des Enfants de la Rue, or, the Street Children's Support Network) to celebrate 25 years of the International Convention of the Rights of the Child.
Some two hundred children, cared for by twelve different organisations across Pointe Noire, attended the event. The children gave performances in theatre and song, as well as presenting a collage of twelve paintings, depicting their respective interpretation of children's rights. A number of local dignitaries attended, including the city's Mayor, the French Consul-General, and other diplomatic and governmental grandees.
There are fewer causes more important to a society than keeping its children off the streets, and ensuring that they are healthy and educated.
Promasidor's contribution and broader strategic involvement at this level, sends a powerful message to key local stakeholders, that it is a committed business partner in supporting the long-term economic future of the country.
