2013-12-24 13:19:35 - Company donates paints to repaint campus facilities
Jotun Paints, one of the world’s leading producers and distributors of paints and powder coatings, brought cheers and smiles to the many kids currently enrolled at Safe Center, a non-profit organization established to help children with Autism and Asperger’s Syndrome, as the company recently donated paint and facilitated the painting of the campus facilities just in time for the school’s first day of classes. The activity, which is part of Jotun’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives, demonstrates the company’s continuing efforts to give back to the local community.
Looking to add more colour and life into the Safe Center, Jotun offered to provide its high quality indoor and outdoor paints and the necessary materials needed for repainting the school. The company
donated ‘Fenomastic Stain Resistant for Interior’ and ‘Jotashield for Exterior’.
“We would like to thank Jotun for helping and donating paint to Safe Center, as well as donating their time and effort in painting the outdoor and indoor areas of the school. The school looks wonderful and has definitely brought a lot of smiles to the children,” said Ms. Mahboba Yousef Mohamed, Director, Safe Center.
Safe Center is a non-profit organization established to help children with Autism and Asperger’s Syndrome. The center, which is located in Al Safa 2, Dubai, offers two accredited online curricula--an academic curriculum and an applied behaviour therapy-based programme. In addition, various therapies are offered like speech and language, behavioural, occupational, play and music therapies. Students enrolled at Safe Center are encouraged to realize their full potential and to fulfil their roles as life-long learners within the community.
“We support Safe Center’s vision of helping these special children develop their skills and talents while at the same time preparing them to become key members of the community. Visiting the Safe Center campus, we decided to donate our interior and exterior paint products like ‘Fenomastic Stain Resistant’ and ‘Jotashield’ to make the campus look more vibrant and lively. Just seeing the happy reactions and smiles from the kids returning to Safe Center for the new school year is definitely worth all the time that we spent in painting the school,” concluded Biren Arora, General Manager, Jotun Paints.
