Leading energy firm Intratek Zimbabwe has intensified its massive corporate social responsibility campaign (CSR) with the latest feat being a donation of a staggering $100 000 as part of philanthropic works lined up for the second half of the year.

Intratek Zimbabwe ‘s managing director Wicknel Chivayo was said to be on a business trip in the United States, and his proxy prominent lawyer (also executive chairman) Wilson Manase announced the donation on his behalf.
The initiative will essentially see the construction of an environmental centre (hub) in Mutare .
The centre presents a confluence of vision and ideas backed by technology and human resources and infrastructure.The hub seeks to promote a green ecosystem which promotes agriculture,wildlife management,renewable energy use and development.
In a speech read on his behalf (by Manase), Chivayo said:

He went on to congratulate all those who were given accolades at the ceremony and expressed his excitement in being involved in an environmental awareness and youth empowering initiative, him being in the same age bracket of what he described as “vibrant and dynamic constituency”.
“Ladies and gentleman, as alluded by our Chairman, this is an occasion to join hands and celebrate with those who have made a mark in the field of Environment , Water and Climate.My hearty congratulations to the award winners tonight (Wednesday), we are proud of you.

“We,the youth form a vibrant and dynamic constituency in Zimbabwe.We thrive on disruption,innovation and adrenalin. We are technologically driven and communicate via social and online media.I am therefore delighted that the envisaged hub aspires to promote youth participation in their own future and that of their planet,I am also gratified to note that the Green Ambassador is a patriotic youth like myself.The event was graced by captains of industry, clergymen and socialites.
