Save the Children Fund
In 2015, we entered into our third year of Orange United – a global project in collaboration with Save the Children Fund. The objective is to meet the health needs of children under the age of five years, in three core areas: immunisation, nutrition and healthcare provision.
In Nigeria, we joined the rest of the GSK world in raising funds for this Initiative. All contributions by employees are doubled by the Company. Employees also have the opportunity to donate on a monthly basis for as long as they desire.
GSK sponsors twenty children of the SOS Villages of Nigeria (Isolo and Owu Ijebu) and since 2004 has spent of over N40m providing for their education and upkeep. Every year, GSK employees donate and set aside a day to visit the children and show them love.
Our Pulse programme offers us the opportunity to use our expertise to solve healthcare challenges at home and abroad. Volunteers gain new experiences and skills and, in many cases, a deeper understanding of patient or consumer needs. From 2013 to 2015, employees of GSK Nigeria volunteered for the programme and were placed with NGOs abroad. We also received visitors in Nigeria from all over the GSK world.Follow our PULSE volunteers
