Addressing the need to support the socio-economic landscape in the local communities in which we operate, PPC has provided PPE and food parcels valued at R57 000.00 to the Malekanyane Social Development organisation. Committed to empowering the community through the PPC CSI initiative, the donation gives the community sustainable value that encourages them to experience a better quality of life.
Makekanyane Social Development organisation is a Non-Profit Organisation (NPO) that has been in existence for 16 years. It was founded by Claudia Malekanyane Munyai a Social worker with a passion for helping the community. They focus on helping the elderly and frail who need to be cared for especially in the current economic conditions and also work with the City of Tshwane (CoT) in some of their social development initiatives.
Tembela Kulati, Product Technical Specialist – Sale & Marketing at PPC RSA explained, “Empowerment at PPC is living our brand promise of STRENGTH BEYOND daily. We are aware of the role the donation in promoting the well-being and social progress in the lives of our communities, we took this step to empower Makekanyane Social Development organisation providing the necessities to the organisation”.
As a 100% local company that provides 100% quality cement and building materials, PPC’s ongoing engagement with the communities it operates in has propelled the business to empower the Atteridgeville community to experience a better quality of life. PPC remains optimistic about the opportunities that exist in the socio-economic landscape and our communities.
“I started operating the NPO from a four room family house and had only five staff members. We have grown over the years into a modest organisation with room/sqm of space and 210 Staff members at the moment. We are thankful for PPC for this and we would like to acknowledge all our donors, past and present with whose help we have become the organisation that we are now and continue to assist us in achieving our goals and programmes, said Claudia Malekanyane Munyai, founder and CEO of Makekanyane Social Development organisation.
Committed to addressing this immediate challenge, PPC’s 128-year experience within the community has made the business understand that by working together with the community, we are stronger.
“Our partnership with Makekanyane Social Development organisation allows the Atteridgeville community to experience the PPC brand promise, STRENGTH BEYOND. We believe that by working with the organisation today, we take the critical steps to ensure a better tomorrow for us all,” concluded Kulati.
