The team at Mincon South Africa recently made a meaningful impact on the lives of adult learners in their community, as part of Mincon’s global Social Impact programme intended to create opportunities for the next generation and making a positive impact on society.
Earlier this year, the Mincon South Africa team reached out to provide community assistance to Oliver’s Village, a non-profit organisation based in Benoni, east of Johannesburg. Oliver’s Village has been providing free educational and support services for the local community since 2001, and currently serves over 600 people every day.
One of the Oliver’s Village initiatives is an adult computer training programme with courses that run for 2-3 months. The Village has two computer labs and space to accommodate up to 60 students.
Within the community serviced by Oliver’s Village, many people struggle to meet even basic needs. To answer that call, Mincon South Africa assembled hygiene packs for the students in the computer training program, ensuring that they can further their education without worry about simple necessities. Each pack supplied to a student contained essentials such as deodorant, soap, a toothbrush, and other personal hygiene products for both women and men.
Nolundi Dayina, Human Resource controller and SR Champion, Mincon South Africa, said:
“This is our second Social Impact initiative for Mincon South Africa this year, and it’s incredibly heartwarming to see what a positive difference we can make to the lives of those in need. We’re looking forward to continuing our hands-on Social Impact proaramme and creating opportunities for thousands of people this year.”
