Statement from Executive Director – Penplusbytes’ 20th Anniversary
We are 20 years old this year!! When our founding members took off on 18th July 2001, they had no idea what to expect. Two decades down the line, we can all testify that the organisation has evolved in many ways.
To say I am happy to be part of today’s historic event, 20TH ANNIVERSARY OF PENPLUSBYTES, will simply be an understatement.
It is an absolute delight to see how our work continues to impact the lives of citizens particularly people with disabilities and other key populations especially in the last couple of years. In the last year, we have grown and expanded our scope of work from four streams to five in spite of the raging pandemic.
With the expansion of our areas of work, the demands on staff have also increased correspondingly and they have had to constantly upgrade their skills and increase their level of effort. It is an undisputed fact that, Penplusbytes is what it is today as a result of the ingenuity of our founding members, the robust board of directors, the hardworking staff and the committed management groups who have led our operations over the years.
On this occasion of our 20th anniversary, I wish us all a happy year-long celebration and look forward to bigger, bolder and better results in the next decade of our existence.
