Slum2School initiative, the commitment from Venia International and Sebastien Clamorgan
Venia International, the firm founded by Sebastien Clamorgan in the late Nineties, is part of a joint venture with the Nigerian restaurant group Eat’n’go. They followed the Slum2School project, an initiative carried out from December 2018 to December 2019, which allowed to raise 50 million naira to support 1000 kids into school.
Slum2School: Eat’n’go and Sebastien Clamorgan’s Venia International to collaborate with the project
The 2019 goal set by Slum2School has been reached: 50 million naira have been raised to help tackling the growing rate of out-of-school kids in Nigeria, providing children with quality education. A key role was played by the Nigerian food and beverage group Eat’n’Go – the leading franchisee for Domino’s Pizza, Cold Stone Creamery, and Pinkberry Gourmet Frozen Yoghurt in Nigeria – in a joint venture that includes Sebastien Clamorgan‘s Venia International as a shareholder. The initiative carried out last year made it possible to donate 100 naira for the purchase of every Eat’n’go product: Cinnastix from Domino’s pizza, bubble waffles from Pinkberry Gourmet Frozen Yoghurt, and waffles from Cold Stone Creamery. Eat’n’go and Slum2School’s objective is to impact the educational sector in Nigeria, by providing access to education and school needs. Slum2School is a developmental organization that aims at building networks for underserved children, by collaborating with partners such as the government, the private sector, and individuals, as well as civil society organizations and other developmental agencies. This network includes Eat’n’go, which, in addition to being active in the education sector in Nigeria, is committed to bringing Food & Beverage brands to Africa. The group is headquartered in Lagos and started its operation in 2012. Since then, also thanks to the support provided by the global consulting and investment firm Venia International, it achieved market leadership and became the premier food operator in Africa.
