Our Giving Culture
At Arch-Vision Workgroup Ltd, the culture of giving-back is deeply embedded in our everyday business. We are engaged in partnerships with NGOs focused on education especially among children from poor backgrounds. Our commitment to advancing education stems from the belief that education has a profound influence on the lives of children and is a tool for a sustainable national and global development.
Our Giving Philosophy
Our giving philosophy gives priority to education and children programs, recognising that every investment in children is a direct investment in the future of our nation. We support several programmes that promote the well-being of children and also programmes that encourage students to pursue education without inhibitions.
OUR FOCUS AREAS
Our Corporate Social Responsibility activities are focused mainly on two areas – Education and Service. We believe the impact we can make with the committed resources available will be maximized by us supporting activities and initiatives in these areas.
At Arch-Vision Workgroup, we understand that education is an essential prerequisite for human development and nation building and every single investment we make in education is a direct investment in the development of the country we operate in. Therefore, we pay attention to capacity development by implementing initiatives of our corporate social responsibility programs in the educational sector. We will continue to do this in several ways.
We provide financial support to deserving and underprivileged young students at different levels of education. Our scholarship programmes are aimed at promising students challenged by lack of funds to continue or complete their education. The scholarships and other charitable contributions we make highlight our commitment to empower the next generation of leaders in Nigeria.
We have been granting scholarships to Nigerian students since 2010. These scholarships cover tuition, books, uniform and monthly stipends depending on the identified needs.
Students in the following schools are currently benefiting from our scholarship programmes:
- University of Lagos, Akoka, Lagos State
- Government Junior College, Ketu-Epe, Lagos State

We are engaged in partnerships with NGOs focused on education especially among children and programs that touch the heart of communities. We also support organizations and initiatives that promote the learning of science among young children in Nigeria.
Our financial and in-kind support for education and community development projects are structured in line with our Corporate Social responsibility strategy.
By us giving to organizations that support this overall effort, we trust we are doing our part to inspire children to become future leaders, lifelong learners, successful people and catalysts for strong and healthy communities.
CHILDREN-IN-SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY
We are proud partners of Children-in-Science and Technology (CIST) a registered Association in Nigeria aimed at popularizing Science and Technology among children for self-reliance.
CIST is an off shoot of an innovative project Children Science Clinic (CSC) designed for African children between the ages of five(5) and twelve(12) years; aimed at catching them young for Science through out-of-school activities, community-linked and integrated approaches.
CIST also aims to raise the level of scientific and technological literacy for sustainable National development through its conferences and other activities. CIST conferences assemble educators, educationists, scientists, policy makers, implementers, NGOs and Civil Society Organizations for presentations and exhibitions. Children and youth that are main targets are involved in science based activities, seminars, workshops and talk shows. Papers presented at the conference are published in the International Journal of Children-in-Science and Technology (JOCIST) after peer-review exercises.
Since science education has played a leading role in the advancements of developed countries, we believe that investments in science and technology education among children are a positive step towards sustainable technological advancements in Nigeria. That is why we support the initiatives of children in Science and technology.
