Better World Foundation Projects

June 2011 – School Fees Project

£3,000 from the Ghana Summit was used to pay for school fees and books for the 30 children from the Drifting Angels Orphanage.  This guaranteed their education for a full year worry over how to pay fees. An extra £1,000 from the Ghana Summit was also used to purchase food supplies for the orphanage.

December 2010 – School Bus Project

£8,455 raised by St. James’ School in London was used to purchase a school bus for the Drifting Angels Orphanage to get them safely to and from school every day, removing the danger for them in simply attending school.  The bus also provides the orphanage with a much needed source of income as it is used as additional transport in the local area.

March 2010 – Shipping of School Supplies, Clothes & Toys

The CWC Group and St. James’ School in London paid for seven boxes of school supplies, clothes and toys to be shipped from London to Ghana and distributed amongst the children at the Drifting Angels Orphanage.

April 2009 – Bathroom & Washroom Facilities

The CWC Group raised $USD 2,000 to build bathroom facilities for the Drifting Angels Orphanage.  Supplies were sourced locally and local contractors were hired to build these facilities.

Christmas 2008 – Drifting Angels Orphange Christmas Party & Fun Day Out

Myriam Chbani, CWC’s Head of Corporate Responsibility in West Africa spent three weeks over Christmas with the Drifting Angels Orphanage and organised their first ever Christmas party with presents and food purchased from donations from CWC Staff. CWC were also able to take them for their first day out of the orphanage to the beautiful Wli Waterfalls in the Volta Region.

CWC In Nigeria

The CWC Group, experts in energy and infrastructure, is pleased to announce their established Nigerian Company, based in Lagos – NCI Limited. NCI looks after CWC’s operations in Nigeria including Conferences, Exhibitions and School for Energy courses.

Nigeria Content has always been a priority for CWC, having held ten editions of Nigeria Oil & Gas (NOG), described by H.E. Goodluck Jonathan, President for the Federal Republic as “the most prestigious assemblages of experts and investors interested in the Nigerian oil business and its environment”. Following industry needs and expanding into the infrastructure and technology industries with the annual Nigeria Infrastructure and NOGTech events, as well as hosting telecoms events, it was a natural progression to open a local office.

CWC operations in Nigeria have had the unprecedented support of the Nigerian Government. Our work is always carried out in consultation with the Nigerian stakeholders, including the MinistriesState CompaniesNGOs and Nigerian industry experts. CWC has made a point of using Nigerian contractors wherever possible, before, during and after our events. The company print their materials in Nigeria, use local companies, transport and software suppliers and advertise in the Nigerian press and radio.

Our commitment to Nigeria expands to ensuring sustainable relationships and events, in-depth market research & understanding, delivering international standards by leveraging local knowledge & suppliers, as well as having a team dedicated to Nigeria.

Moreover, we organise internships, non-profit events and charity & development initiatives. CWC and NCI provide a longstanding support of Nigerian Business Coalition Against AIDS (NIBUCAA) as part of its corporate social responsibility. The involvement and successes to date include:

  • Active membership
  • Raising NIBUCAA’s profile through CWC’s Nigerian events & media
