As part of its Mandela Day activities, The Mvula Trust visited Home of Joy day-care centre to donate food parcels, toys and other goods.
The centre is located in Etwatwa near Springs in the Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality. It takes care of approximately forty (40) kids from underprivileged families and their age ranges from three (3) months to six (6) years of age, and some of them are brought to the crèche without food because their parents are either unemployed or rely on the centre for provision.
Handing over the goods to the centre, Chief Operations Officer at The Mvula Trust, Julia Mmushi said: “Mandela subjected his life to detention for the sake of our freedom. He was a selfless and kind – hearted man. It is for this reason that we have to be his agents of change.”
The Mvula Trust staff played with kids and showed them love during the event. Appreciating this wonderful gesture, children also sang beautiful songs and danced for the guests.
“I am grateful to you The Mvula Trust for assistance. Our centre was struggling with provision of food to the kids. We feel privileged to be visited by you today,” said Doris Sukazi, head of the crèche.
Let the spirit of Mandela Day activities continue to positively impact lives.
The Mvula Trust and Energy and Water Sector Education and Training Authority (EWSETA) jointly launched the learnership programme at Tzaneen in the Mopani District Municipality on the 20 May 2016.
The programme will mainly focus on the community water, health and sanitation monitoring and 100 identified youth from five (5) local municipalities, namely: Greater Tzaneen Local Municipality, Greater Giyani Local Municipality, Greater Letaba Local Municipality, Maruleng Local Municipality and Ba-Phalaborwa Local Municipality, will participate in this venture.
Addressing the learners, Executive Mayor of the Mopani District Municipality, Ms Nkakareng Rakgoale urged them to “vigorously imbibe as much knowledge as they can during the entire programme for their future and communities’ upliftment.” In addition, she emphasised that youth must appreciate the opportunity to bridge the skills gap in the water and sanitation sector.
Ms Norah Hanke, Water Sector Manager at the EWSETA, also highlighted that “not all countries are given these kind of opportunities; not all young people are selected to take part in in programmes like this one. Please use this opportunity wisely”.
Adding to the trail of advice to learners, Capacity Building and Training Manager at The Mvula Trust, Mr. Takalani Modau outlined the scope and basis of The Mvula Trust’s involvement in the greater scheme of things. “We have been assigned with responsibilities to holistically manage this learnership programme until it comes to its fruition,” said Modau.
Learners were exhilarated to be part of this initiative and are pinning their hopes on the learnership programme. “It is difficult to get a job if you only have a Grade 12 certificate. I hope this programme will serve as a foundation for greater things to come,” said Glenda Mola from Maruleng Local Municipality.
The learnership programme will officially commence on the 1 June 2016 and it will run for twelve (12) months – incorporating both theoretical and practical learning.
It is our determination as The Mvula Trust to assist and get involved when a good cause or human development initiative is pursued.
Recently, we unhesitantly joined forces with the Limpopo Provincial Government when they hosted education summits in their five (5) districts, which culminated into a two-day Limpopo Provincial Education Summit.
We are delighted to have constructively participated and contributed in this project geared towards creating a conducive learning and teaching environment.
Apart from our founding mandate to persistently confront matters pertaining provision of water and sanitation in rural communities and schools, we have also resolved to broaden our horizons by supporting initiatives that are meant to empower and improve the socio- economic situation in areas where our people live.
Edward de Bono – a Maltese physician, psychologist, author, inventor and consultant – was accurate when he uttered this statement: “Companies that solely focus on competition will ultimately die. Those that focus on value creation will thrive”.
The levels of our gratification and value creation are interwoven. The cause for our existence should be measured against multifaceted and developmental interventions through which we consciously make a lasting impact in the communities across South Africa.
