2016 winner of best classified ads platform, OLX Nigeria, in keeping with its mantra – that the sellers win, the buyers win, the community wins, and OLX wins, has given a community vocational school for the less privileged in Lagos cause to smile.
As part of efforts to help the community win, OLX visited the Modupe Cole Memorial Child Care and Treatment Home School for the disabled and the team painted an entire section of the school’s walls by themselves.
Not done, the staff of OLX also patronized the students, buying some hand-crafted items from them as gifts for friends and family. Also, gifts and food items were donated to the school, to fulfil the needs of the students and caretakers, especially during the festive season.
Lola Masha, Country Manager, OLX stated that one of the values at OLX is “Live It” which is expressed not only by staff selling items they no longer need on the OLX platform to make extra cash, but also by helping and empowering the communities in which they operate.
Rev Adebayo Adeyemi- Cole, Secretary of the Women’s Voluntary Organization, Founder of Modupe Cole extended appreciation to OLX Nigeria for their kind gesture of painting the school and generous donation of food supplies.
