Mr. Arif Chowdhury, Vice President of Transsion Holdings, introducing the CSR of Transsion to media
As a responsible enterprise, Transsion is committed to building up a sustainable ecosystem together with our employees, partners and local consumers. Guided by this principle, Transsion has been working hard to pay back to local community and consumers and fulfill its corporate social responsibilities. For example, in January 2016, TECNO lighted up Computer Village in Ikeja, Nigeria with nearly 100 solar-powered street lights; ever since September 2016, Infinix set aside 500 US dollars per month to buy some basic living supplies for an orphanage where one of the Infinix employees was raised. In addition, we accompany the children, showing them movies about China to provide them a chance to know more about the world; in March 2017, Kenya was suffering a severe drought, more than 2.1 million people were affected. We immediately donated KES 2,000,000 worth of daily necessities to affected areas.
