LFZ is socially aware and strives to ensure a harmonious coexistence between the Zone and the host communities. In addition to regular engagements with different focus groups in the community, the following are some of our initiatives.
CSR INITIATIVES BY LAGOS FREE ZONE
At Lagos Free Zone (LFZ), we are deeply committed to sustainable development and being a responsible corporate citizen. We understand that our success is intertwined with the well-being of our communities and the environment. As the premier free zone in Lagos, we are dedicated to making a positive impact by actively engaging with the community and implementing initiatives that address their needs.
Education and Skill Development
We understand the importance of education and its role in empowering individuals and driving socioeconomic growth. Our mission to see all children - regardless of background and circumstance, achieve their full potential led to the creation of initiatives such as the TOLARAM SCIENCE CHALLENGE (TSC), LFZ Scholarship program and many more. Through these programs, we are committed to raising the quality of education for young individuals in our host communities. Additionally, LFZ actively supports local schools by conducting environmental cleanup activities, ensuring a clean and conducive learning environment for students.
Community Outreach and Empowerment
LFZ is committed to uplifting the lives of community members, particularly the marginalised and disadvantaged. We actively engage with local communities to understand their needs and develop targeted initiatives. Our community outreach programs aim to provide support, promote skill development, and improve livelihoods.
Health and Well-being
LFZ recognizes the importance of public health and takes proactive measures to support local communities. During the Covid-19 pandemic, we provided significant support by donating essential medical supplies, food, and face masks to communities in need. LFZ also contributed to the establishment of a fully staffed emergency response medical facility to serve the community. We continuously seek opportunities to enhance public health and well-being through targeted initiatives and partnerships.
Corporate Social Responsibility
LFZ takes great pride in our extensive corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives. We firmly believe in supporting Nigeria's national development aspirations by identifying and responding to major challenges facing our nation. Our CSR programs focus on key areas such as education, environmental conservation, water management, youth empowerment, talent development, and sports. By leveraging our resources and expertise, we strive to make a tangible difference in the lives of individuals and the communities we serve.
