“The company has taken a keen interest in the vulnerable and disadvantaged groups within our society. These we do through initiatives such as, the Mascom Housing Project, the CEO’s Christmas party for vulnerable children and Mascom 3 for 3. As part of our Corporate Social Responsibility efforts, in June of this year, Mascom announced the flagship project dubbed the Mascom 3 for 3. This campaign is a movement that encourages Mascom Employees to devote 3 hours of their time to causes and initiatives that serve their communities,” said Seboni
