Every business has a responsibility towards the communities in which it operates. To this end our social development programme, termed Luli, predominantly focuses on the development of the youth. This takes many forms, such as the building of classrooms, support for soup kitchens, as well as donations of sporting equipment and computers.
When supporting an organisation, an important component for us is the involvement of our employees in the programme. When building classrooms, our employees worked hand in hand with the school children, to paint the classrooms and plant up flower beds and gardens around the area.
We have also had special donation drives throughout the company, whereby employees bring foodstuffs for our supported programmes, or donate stationery, blankets and other items.
It is always incredibly rewarding to see the depth of commitment from our employees, towards helping others. In this way, it is not only the company making a difference, but each and every participating employee, which makes the bond stronger between our chosen organisations.
Whilst there is a strong focus on institutions near our headquarters in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal, we have supported programmes throughout South Africa, as well as internationally.
