Operating in Education, Heritage,Social development,Environmental conservation Total’s CSI initiatives are vested in developing our country and its people.

Zakithi Zama who heads up CSI  at the French oil company said,

“Corporate social investment is not only the responsibility of the company,but also the responsibility of each and every Total employee. The Total Attitude of boldness, listening, cross functionality and mutual support have resulted in our Employee Volunteer Programme where our people go out and make a difference in the lives of their fellow countrymen, women and children,We are forever mindful of the responsibility we have to make a sustainable contribution to the future of the country and we embrace this responsibility through our corporate social investment programme.”

By highlighting the importance of conservation and providing people with the chance to appreciate the splendour and diversity of Africa’s wonderful places, Total oil hopes to instill a culture of pride in  natural heritage and a sense of responsibility for its ongoing preservation.

To accomplish this, they have the Kids in Kruger which aims to teach the value of nature conservation to children.This ground-breaking project, was started with the aim of providing local children from surrounding communities with the opportunity to experience the wonders and beauty of the Kruger National Park.

The Kids in Kruger initiative has grown significantly since its inception To date, Kids in Kruger has helped over 220 000 learners between the ages of 8 and 16 to experience one of Africa’s greatest wild places. Total South Africa is proud to be part of a project that builds a sense of value for conservation in future generation.

A lack of physical activity leads to numerous problems in later life, including posture and balance. Move-It Moving Matters programme was introduced by Total oil with the aim of encouraging and thus improving mobility and skeletal muscles and structure of children in poor communities.

On 27 June 2011, teachers from 30 schools participated in a day-long workshop at Mambo Primary in Chiawelo, Soweto to enable them to train their pupils in sports and activities. Total’s contribution of R3 million over the next years will enable them to penetrate a further 32 Soweto schools.

The rural community at Springvale, near Highflats in Ixobho KwaZulu-Natal is faced with dire challenges of lack of potable drinking water.

The municipality erected one central standpipe to provide drinking water to the community, albeit corrosive and damaging to clothes, kettle elements and most of all, the people of the village. The water was sourced from Umgeni Water’s bulk reticulation system up to early December 2018.

Since then, water has been provided irregularly using one municipal water tanker which supplies twice a month and in some instance, they show up once in weeks.

As the community, we have resorted to primitive means of survival by sharing the spring with goats and cattle herds. The said spring is also rapidly drying up, due to persistent drought.

My community is of a very low leaving standard. NONE of the households have flushing toilets, showers, bath tubs, geysers, kitchen sinks, swimming pools, washing machines, etc. in fact, 90% of the households live in mud houses and cannot even afford to buy Jojo tanks in order to harvest and store rain water in rainy season.

It is for this reason that I humbly request your company to assist our community to kindly erect a borehole for our sustainability as the forgotten rural community.

Most of us rely on subsistence farming and other related activities. But, without water, the community consisting mainly of the elderly, is finding it difficult to survive.

Your assistance in this matter would be highly appreciated. I am available to show you the site at your earliest convenience.

Your sincerely
