Director’s Message

There are many gaps in different sectors of our society and of the four focal areas CSRF supports, we note especially that the biggest gaps are in the Health and Education sectors.

It is our desire to make positive changes in our community by contributing to the saving of lives while it is within our capacity to do so. This we intend to do by providing necessary support in various ways to ensure lives are saved as much as possible.

It is our goal also to provide much needed support in the Education sector by upgrading run-down facilities and donating to worthy causes that will directly impact lives of Nigerians in general.

In order to be able to achieve our set goals, we will not be able to handle it all alone and would require internal and external support of Corporate Organizations, NGOs, individuals and others who by partnering with us and making donations to the organization can help us achieve our goals.

Custodian Press release

The Vocational and Professional Development Academy

Custodian Social Responsibility Foundation (CSRF) is happy to have sponsored the setting up of the Vocational Professional Development Academy opened on 14th December 2017.

It is a statement of fact today that there is an acute shortage of well-trained artisans in our country – you struggle to find really good electricians, plumbers and other good hands.

That is why we chose to support the setting up of the VPDA and it is hoped that the existing gaps in the vocational education sector would be addressed. In time, graduates of the VPDA would impact positively on the environment by providing the much-needed skills.

Eventually, our Country’s economic fortunes would be better while a lot of currently unemployed youths will be gainfully employed, leading to a safer society.
