Staff from Enterprises University of Pretoria (Pty) Ltd (Enterprise UP) generously opened their wallets and volunteered their 67 minutes to support the Leamogetswe Safety Home on Mandela Day 2016. This year's Mandela Day initiative was a shoebox project. Clothing, toiletries and other much-needed items were included in the boxes, which were personalised for each recipient.
Leamogetswe Safety Home is a non-profit organisation situated in Atteridgeville that provides support and shelter to children and youths, including vulnerable children, abandoned babies and street children. In addition to the shoebox project, Enterprises UP staff donated non-perishable food and clothing to the centre.
'Your company's commitment to our home was incredibly helpful. Your assistance and support means so much to us, but even more to the children,' says Matlakala Makhubela, Director of Leamogetswe Safety Home.
Enterprises UP staff visited the shelter and handed out the gifts and donations. The children and staff received the delegation with great enthusiasm and gratitude. For 67 minutes, Enterprises UP staff entertained and played with the young children, who were very excited to receive visitors.
'You may never know what results come of your action,
But if you do nothing there will be no result.'
