“Kibera In Need” (KIN),

As part of our Corporate Social Responsibility programme, Fusion Group has had a long-
standing relationship with Foundations that enables us to be socially accountable to our
stakeholders, and the public. We highlight below our engagement as corporate citizenship to
impact positively the society and environment we operate in.

As part of our Corporate Social Responsibility, Fusion Group has worked with a registered UK
Charity, “Kibera In Need” (KIN), and its local NGO partner in Kenya, Riziki Kenya.
Through our involvement, KIN has provided access to education, healthcare and psycho-social
support for vulnerable children in the Kibera settlement in Nairobi, Kenya. Fusion assists both
through financial contributions and through staff involvement in projects.

“The Kibera” is a slum area of 2.5 sq. Km which is home to at least 800,000 people. It has a
range of economic and social problems including sanitation, security, nutrition, health (a high
proportion of residents are affected by HIV), social conflict, and abuse. KIN’s child sponsorship
scheme provides vulnerable children with primary education, and – unusually – extends this
support to secondary education and vocational training. The aim: to help some of the least
advantaged some chance of participating in Kenya’s growth story.

Fusion Group has also supported Optiven Foundation for the last three years in a row to
empower approximately 8,000 underprivileged students from 20 different counties in Kenya
access education. Through the Soaring Eagles Scholarship Programme (SESP), which is part of
Optiven’s Foundation Education Pillar, Fusion has extended Kes. 3,000,000.00 investment to
restore hope to bright, deserving students by giving them a chance to pursue an education and all

its associated advantages. Fusion believes with such support, many deserving students will be
able to achieve improved academic results, increased chances of success in life, increased gender equality in secondary school education, fresh opportunities for students from rural areas and greater social integration among students.

Speaking while giving a further donation on the 23 rd May 2022, of Kes. 1 million to Optiven
Foundation, Mr. Daniel Kamau, CEO Fusion Group said, “We at Fusion are advocates of 100%
transition from primary school to secondary schools. 2022 marks 19 years since the free primary
education was introduced but we still have about 1.6 million students out of schools. 1 million in
primary schools and about 600,000 in high schools. Our support to Optiven’s Foundation plays
some role in ensuring the 600,000 pupils are not stuck at home for lack of shoes, uniforms and
other basics and that they actually make it to High School.”.
