UBA Foundation - Special Projects
UBA Foundation, the Corporate Social Responsibility Arm of United Bank for Africa (UBA) Plc, has completed the construction of a pedestrian bridge valued at about N13m for students of the Usmanu Danfodiyo University, Sokoto State (UDUS), thus bringing comfort to students of the institution.
For over four decades, the students of UDUS, especially those living off-campus faced difficulties in connecting to the campus especially during the rainy season, due to the poor state of the road. They couldn’t get in and out of their dormitories and had to use an uncomfortably long route to get to lectures and the mosque.
Successful CSR programs must foster local community participation to limit dependence and promote the concept of self-help development.
In UBA Foundation, we believe in intervening and building capacity within the community to facilitate projects that act as a catalyst to social and economic development. Some of the contributions and donations the Foundation makes to improve adverse living condition include.
