The ICT-Works CSI Team went to visit the young children at the Bathabeleng Day Care Centre in Ivory Park where they delivered snack-packs, Easter eggs, tables, chairs and playmats for the children.
The Bathabeleng Home for Orphans, with which ICT-Works has been involved for a long time, is run by Mrs. Petunia Mankutlwise. The money gained from the operation of the Day Care Centre assists her to bear the costs of running the Home. In order to enable her to offer the best possible service, the tables, chairs and playmats will ensure that the children are always comfortable during meal, learning and most importantly, nap times.
“This forms just one of the important parts of our overall Social Involvement activity, to offer assistance where we are able to make a small difference in the local community. We are very proud to be affiliated with the Bathabeleng Home and wish Petunia all of the best in the running of her Day Care Centre,” says Maggy Sibiya, Executive Director at ICT-Works. “Aside from this being a way to contribute, it really adds value to our staff as well who thoroughly enjoy being involved in this kind of activity. They all had a wonderful day playing and singing with the little ones, and were rather sad when they had to leave.”
