Mandela Day 2017 – “Share the Joy of Giving Back”

In 2017 the group once again held a Mandela Day experience to enable employees to give back to the community.

“Share the Joy of Giving Back” supported nine schools in Mfuleni with education boxes. Two age group boxes 0-3 years and 3-6 years were packed. All the toys in the boxes were aligned with the children’s daily learning programme in school enabling parents to supplement their learning at home. The Trust made a matching donation of R100 for every box packed.

Over 950 boxes were packed, with R95 000 donated by the Trust towards the support of parent engagement training.
