Our hope with this program is primarily to assist the catering business that we were partnered with to prosper and grow and in turn help the economy in Nigeria to grow as well. As a group we promise to work together to achieve our goals within the group in addition to helping the business in Nigeria accomplish their goals. The catering business is clearly a vital part of society in Nigeria, as food is a vital part of life. In helping this business to grow, we are hoping to have a positive impact on the society that the business is a part of. We hope to be able to offer our knowledge and resources to create a better future for the catering business. It is our pledge to work together and work with great promise to achieve these goals and set up a bright future for the catering business.
