The Robus Group, a leading provider of insurance management and fiduciary services, and winner of the 2013 Independent Captive Manager of the Year award at the inaugural UK Captive Service Awards, are delighted to today announce their adoption of Lara’s Foundation as their chosen charity.
The Group’s CEO, Chris Le Conte, said that the goals Lara’s Foundation were working towards were invaluable and the importance of the charity should not be overlooked, “Lara’s Foundation is a charity very close to our hearts at the Robus Group, having been set up following the untimely death of Lara Jones in March 2012.
“The support the Foundation has received in its first 17 months has been a testament to how highly Lara, a dedicated teacher of English to non-native speakers of all abilities from all over the world, was, and still is, valued by her friends and colleagues.
“The Foundation has recently confirmed an alliance with Raleigh International and Save the Children and will shortly be making the journey out to Tanzania where the money they have raised will be put to very good use in funding the building of an Early Childhood Development (ECD) centre and two sanitation facilities, one for boys and one for girls in the local community of Ndala, Northern Tanzania.
“Education facilities in and around Ndala, a rural area, are poor and this ECD will provide a safe haven for the most vulnerable young children and, for the first time in Ndala, pre-primary education.
“The goal of Lara’s Foundation is to assist in increasing English Language capacity in low-income communities around the world, working with communities where such knowledge is essential to access higher education, enhance employment opportunities, and thus improve quality of life.
“At Robus we represent and aim for a level of clarity, expertise and experience that mirrors Robus adopts Lara’s Foundation as their chosen charity the excellence in English Language education for which Lara’s Foundation strives. We are honoured to be a Sponsor of Lara’s Foundation and look forward to working with them in the future to develop our relationship and to see what the future holds for their work.
“There’s a few Robus Group fund raising ideas being discussed so watch this space!”.
