Yesterday, Unilever opened their doors to lucky winners and spectators alike for the second Chuo Club Awarding Ceremony. As expected, the mood was very positive at Water Mark business center which is the home of Unilever Kenya.
Emcee Mwalimu Rachel kept the parents excited with questions about the Unilever brand; the knowledgable ones walked away with hampers, I’m sure most of y’all didn’t know that Lifebuoy is the oldest product from Unilever. And did you know that Unilever was formally known as East African Industries?
The brand has truly come a long way, and has given Kenyans life-changing products that make our lives much easier.
The students, who were drawn from various regions across the country, received amounts ranging from Sh20,000 to Sh100,000 to cater for their school fees and tablet devices to improve and aid in their learning experiences.
Unilever Kenya launched the Chuo Club Program in January this year. There is no doubt that most students’ shopping carts contain 80 percent of the numerous Unilever brands such as Omo, Blue band, Close Up and many others. When students are shopping at any of the retail supermarkets, all they have to do is fill out the Chuo Club forms, attach their shopping receipt and stand a chance to win.
Out of the 100 students, five received Sh100,000 each, 30 received Sh50,000 each; 50 received Sh20,000 each while 15 students each received a tablet device worth Sh35,000.
Speaking during the Chuo Club Winners Award Presentation Ceremony, Unilever East Africa’s Marketing Director for Foods and Refreshments, Agnes Kitololo said Unilever believes that education is at the core of human development and societal progress.
It has the power to transform lives and is essential to our nation’s prosperity. We hope that the school fees will not only help keep our children in school but will boost their morale and quest for learning, eventually translating to a brighter future for the students and our country
