The Lagos State Chapter of the Nigerian Institute of Public Relations (NIPR) is proud to announce the continuation of its yearly tradition of contributing a percentage of the Lagos Public Relations Industry Gala (LAPRIGA) earnings to support its CSR initiative, tagged ‘Extra Mile Project’ in support of people living with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
This longstanding commitment demonstrates the Chapter’s dedication to making a positive impact on the lives of children with autism and their families.
LAPRIGA Awards, a prestigious high-profile event, showcases and recognizes excellence in public relations practice in public and private sector.
Recognizing the significance of giving back to the community, Lagos NIPR has chosen to allocate a portion of the event’s earnings to support Puresouls Learning Foundation for yet another year.
The decision to focus on supporting an autism school stems from the chapter’s belief in promoting inclusivity and providing a nurturing environment for children with autism. By contributing a percentage of the LAPRIGA earnings, Lagos NIPR aims to enhance the facilities, resources, and educational opportunities available to these exceptional children.
The donation will help the autism school in various ways, such as improving infrastructure, expanding learning materials, implementing specialized programs, and providing additional support services. Lagos NIPR recognizes the importance of early intervention and high-quality education for children with autism, and through this annual contribution, the chapter aims to empower them to reach their full potential.
Mrs Comfort Obot Nwankwo, the Chairman of Lagos NIPR, expressed her enthusiasm for the continued tradition, stating, “We are delighted to uphold this longstanding tradition of giving back to the community through our LAPRIGA event. By supporting an autism school, we are investing in the future of these incredible children and fostering an inclusive society that celebrates diversity.”
Lagos NIPR encourages other organizations, institutions, and individuals to follow suit by supporting initiatives that promote the well-being and development of children with autism. Together, through collaborative efforts, we can create a more inclusive society where everyone has equal opportunities to thrive.
