Media Libraries CSI project

The SABC Media Libraries have embarked on a Corporate Social Investment Project since 2007. The Manger Care Centre in Benoni, specifically with Blessings and Las Vegas Creche, are the main receivers of the investment. Blessings houses unemployed men. The Las Vegas Creche is situated in Etwatwa and is run by a lady called Elizabeth who looks after 50 – 60 children aged 1 – 6.

The following has already been donated:
  • Stainless steel sinks, a medical aid kit and blankets were donated;
  • Fruit trees were planted;
  • Stationary and a cot were donated;
  • Christmas Parties were held for the kids;
  • Seed and seedlings were donated, as well as bedding and curtains;
  • Most recently a 200 set linen donation were received from the FIFA Organizing Committee of UJ.

The Media Library is very proud of this project, since most donations and funding come from the staff of the Media Library. Fund raising activities such as the selling of hot dogs are done twice a year. External donations came from The University of Johannesburg, Clover Danone, Starke Ayres.

On Mandela Day on 16th July the Media Libraries will visit Blessings to deliver clothing, books and other stuff. See the SABC Media Libraries website for more info and photos.
