The second CSR project initiated by us earlier in July involved vulnerable families around Tilisi that have been affected by COVID-19. We delivered relief packages to 92 vulnerable families. This was a well coordinated effort by our staff together with community elders and the Senior Chief, Rironi location. The packages included an assortment of food items, blankets and masks. Identified beneficiaries included the elderly, people with disabilities and those who were unemployed having to support their families.
In early July 2020, Tilisi donated I.C.U equipment to Tigoni Level 4 Hospital’s newly built I.C.U unit in a bid to step up the fight against the pandemic in Kiambu county. The hospital is a designated Covid -19 centre already receiving patients with positive cases. We strongly believe that the better equipped our hospitals are, the higher the chances of saving lives and we can come out a stronger community overall. Receiving the donation from Ranee Nanji and Kavit Shah (co-CEOs of Tilisi) was Kiambu Governor Dr. James Nyoro, esteemed CECs and respected advisors.
In 2019, Tilisi sponsored Entrepreneur's Organisation's GSEA (Global Student Entrepreneurship Awards), a competition aimed at encouraging, promoting and assisting budding student entrepreneurs. The Kenyan finals took place on the 16th of November 2019 and the Global GSEA Final's will be held in Cape Town, South Africa. We would like to Congratulate Sylvia Wambui CEO of Fundis Ltd for winning the GSEA Kenyan Final 2019. We are proud to have been part of this journey with GSEA and commend their effort to empower the next generation of student entrepreneurs to be the change makers in their community.
One of the ways of giving back to the community is by involving the little ones around us. At Tilisi, we recognise the need to support our children. This is why the month of August was dedicated to the children who live around Tilisi.
On 4th of August Tilisi embarked on a journey from Limuru to the animal orphanage at Nairobi National Park with the children of Gatimu Primary School. The purpose of the tour was to educate the children of our national heritage and the contribution that wildlife makes to our economy, culture and biodiversity. The children had a great time and got to see many of the animals at the animal orphanage
On the 6th of August Tilisi sponsored a Tilisi Fun day filled with children's activities such as bouncing castles, fun games and puppet shows for the students of Gatimu Nursery School. By the end of the day everyone had been to the bouncing castle and the slides and not even the cold weather wore anyone down.
Tilisi is proud to be a member of the Rironi community. As a good community member we upgraded the Rironi Water Project with Kshs. 5 million of investment including upgrading to 2.7 kilometres of HPDE pipes. The works also included fencing of the Rironi tank area within Tilisi and provision of access gate.
