Cell C’s Take a Girl Child To Work Day

Cell C’s Take a Girl Child To Work Day

SizweNtsalubaGobodo is proud to be a host to 10 school girls during the 15th anniversary of Cell C’s Take a Girl Child To Work Day® on May 25th, 2017.

We have been a part of this annual corporate social investment initiative that is held across South Africa and exposes Grade 10 to 12 girl learners to the workplace.

This year, we invited 10 Grade 12 pupils from Olievenhoutbosch High School, in Centurion to spend the day with us.

The girls will be introduced to different division representatives that will share their role and impart their commendable knowledge on the division they represent.

SizweNtsalubaGobodo is committed to fostering gender equality and the empowerment of women through education.

The Take a Girl Child to Work Day statistics show that this initiative has a profound effect on the girls, with many of them choosing a career based on their day in the workplace.

The programme targets Grade 10 to 12 girl learners, who want to start making decisions about their future careers. In the last 15 years, this impactful campaign has grown into a nationwide movement and one of South Africa’s most recognisable and successful social campaigns.

The project aims to expose girls to a day in the professional workplace, showcasing a wide variety of career opportunities they would not otherwise be exposed to – and in doing so helping them to dream, believe and achieve.

The Take a Girl Child to Work Day initiative contributes towards the development of strong, smart, bold girls and assist in preparing a core of future women leaders who will be vibrant contributors to the economy and leading job creators for our country.

Ikamva

Ikamva

We have adopted, Ikamva, a community driven initiative, started by motivated young South Africans who want to make a difference in the country. Through their own will, they run Saturday classes to help learners achieve higher school grades. Through our investment, we are shaping young minds, providing local youth with the knowledge, skill and motivation required to become leaders within society.

To activate this learning, we have put together a career awareness days, aimed at learners from Grade 8-12. The career awareness days focus on developing the knowledge, skills and attitudes required by learners to be able to pursue their professional goals and ultimately succeed in their careers.

Adult Literacy Project

Adult Literacy Project

SizweNtsalubaGobodo currently participates in an Adult Literacy project involving 20 domestic workers residing in the Monument Park Area in Pretoria. Initiated by their employers in an effort to give something back to the women in the community, the objective is to teach these helpers basic reading and writing skills.

The firm provides tutorial and other assistance, teaching basic reading and writing skills to almost 20 dedicated students twice a week. Of the students on the project, 70% are illiterate, with the rest only having received education up to lower primary school level. Majority of the students are between 40 years and 60 years of age.
