Community

HomeChoice is committed to community upliftment and through the HomeChoice Development Trust (HDT) has invested over R20 million in education and female empowerment projects since its formation in 2005. Through a renewed focus on early childhood development the HDT facilitates the upgrading of infrastructure and equipment, teacher training and nutritional support of unregistered educare centres.

The support from the HDT is founded on the philosophy that quality early childhood development programmes are a powerful means of overcoming the effects of poverty. Over the last four years the HDT has supported over 7 000 children, provided training assistance to over 480 teachers and benefited more than 145 ECD centres.

Staff involvement in CSI

HomeChoice staff participate in the Community Chest “Give As You Earn” programme which encourages staff to make a small monthly donation which is then matched by the company.

Community upliftment has also been achieved through employee team-building initiatives such as the painting of dormitories at a local place of safety looking after children who have been removed from their home environment.
