      Cresta President Sponsors Coding Skills at Therisanyo Primary School

      In a bid to foster digital literacy and innovation from an early age, Cresta President Hotel has embarked on a groundbreaking initiative by sponsoring coding skills at Therisanyo Primary School. This move marks a significant stride in the hotel's Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) efforts, highlighting its commitment to community development and education.


      "We found it imperative to introduce coding to primary school children as part of our CSR initiatives," stated Kosi Seitshiro, General Manager of Cresta President Hotel. "Coding is not just a skill; it's a gateway to problem-solving, computational thinking, and creativity. It equips students with the tools they need to navigate the digital landscape and participate meaningfully in the technology-driven world."


      Coding, often regarded as the language of the future, is an essential skill in today's technologically advanced society. It enables individuals to communicate with computers, instructing them to perform specific tasks and functions. From developing software to designing websites and creating video games, coding plays a pivotal role in various aspects of modern-day life.


      Cresta Marakanelo Limited (CML), the parent company of Cresta Lodge, has long upheld a robust CSR policy centered around Environment, Education, and Women and Children. Through strategic partnerships and collaborations, the company endeavors to support initiatives that foster sustainable community development.


      "In line with our CSR policy, community development remains a top priority for Cresta Marakanelo Limited. We believe in creating strong, diverse communities that can harness talent, drive entrepreneurship, and address societal challenges."


      The coding skills workshops at Therisanyo Primary School is a testament to Cresta Lodge's dedication to nurturing future innovators. Through a collaborative effort with Hands on Code and Coderdojo, renowned organizations specializing in tech education, the initiative aims to empower young minds with the knowledge and skills needed to thrive in the digital age.


      As the world continues to embrace technological advancements, initiatives like these serve as crucial stepping stones in bridging the digital divide and ensuring that no child is left behind in the rapidly evolving digital landscape. Cresta Lodge's pioneering efforts in sponsoring coding skills underscore the hotel's unwavering commitment to making a positive impact on society and shaping a brighter future for generations to come.
