The Slum2School initiative: Eat’n’go and Sebastien Clamorgan to support kids into school
The Nigerian restaurant group Eat’n’go, a joint venture that includes Sebastien Clamorgan as a shareholder, reached the 2019 goal set within the Slum2School initiative: to raise 50 million naira to support 1000 kids into school in Nigeria. The project was carried out from December 2018 to December 2019.
Sebastien Clamorgan, the great success achieved during the Slum2School initiative
Slum2School is a Nigerian developmental organization which aims at empowering children in remote communities with quality education. The initiative carried out during 2019 made it possible to donate 100 naira for every Eat’n’go product purchased since December 2018: Cinnastix from Domino’s pizza, bubble waffles from Pinkberry Gourmet Frozen Yoghurt, and waffles from Cold Stone Creamery. The common goal set by the project is to support children into school and to improve education in Nigeria: the initiative, in fact, will help tackling the growing rate of out-of-school kids in the country, and coping with the shortcomings in the education sector. In order to provide education and create networks to support underserved children in hard to reach communities, the Slum2School project collaborates with several partners, like the government, the private sector, individuals, civil society organizations and other developmental agencies. Among these, a leading role was played by the food and beverage group headquartered in Lagos, Eat’n’Go, which is the leading franchisee for Domino’s Pizza, Cold Stone Creamery, and Pinkberry Gourmet Frozen Yoghurt in Nigeria. Including Sebastien Clamorgan‘s Venia International as a shareholder, the Nigerian group Eat’n’Go started its operation in 2012 and managed to open more than one hundred stores across the country. The group is dedicated to bringing Food & Beverage brands to Africa, and, thanks to the recent Slum2School initiative, as well as to supporting education across the country. The great success achieved was also due to the important partnership with the global consulting and investment firm Venia International.
