CIC GROUP IMPACTS THE SOCIETY

In the last five decades, CIC Group has shouldered the risks of Kenyans by offering flexible insurance and financial services built around their needs while keeping our word. CIC Group is governed by the principle of deliberately creating positive impact to the society through promotion of activities that are beyond our core business while serving the interests of our shareholders.

Mwamko children rescue center is a home in Soweto slums, Kahawa west that aims at transforming the lives of orphans, vulnerable and needy children, youths and women through counseling, provision of care, protection and basic needs by giving them hope and a future.

For the past five years, CIC Group has supported the home by making donations of food stuff, clothes to the home in the spirit of giving back to the society by helping the less fortunate. At the end of the Customer service week, our staff visited the home where we interacted with 30 children.

CIC Group is also governed by the cooperatives principle of working for the sustainable development of the community which includes care and concern for the environment. Late last month, we joined other members of the cooperative movement in marking the Cooperatives Environment Day in Nairobi in a challenge to venture into tree planting activities for prosperity.

The Cooperative Alliance of Kenya (CAK) and CIC Group Chairman Mr. Japheth Mangomere said that as a country, we need to take part in tree planting and ensure that our environment is preserved for the next generation. “As cooperators, we saw it fit to join the rest of the world in mitigating climate change which has become a global disaster”, said Mr. Mangomere.

The Cooperative Alliance of Kenya in which CIC Group is a member, has entered into a partnership with the Agricultural Society of Kenya to plant more than 3000 trees which will be supported by a tree planting drive for cooperative members.

In May 2018, President Uhuru launched an ambitious tree planting campaign as a result of the changing weather being witnessed in the country as a result of neglected environment. He urged all Kenyans to heed to the call and plant trees countrywide.

The Kenya Forest Services has laid out a strategy aimed at increasing the forest cover from the current 7.2 per cent to 10 per cent by 2022. Under the strategy, Kenya needs to plant 1.8 billion seedlings between now and 2022 to achieve 10 per cent tree cover.
