Kishugu Training gives 67 Mandela minutes to Local clinic
In the spirit that you “give more than you take,” Kishugu Training Academy spent Mandela Day helping out at the Mombela Community Clinic.
“We have a longstanding relationship with the clinic,” said Training Academy Manager Chris Kasayi, “So it was great to be able to help out at the clinic and give something back.”
The group, headed by Academy Chief Instructor, Eustacia Ramokunuti, helped with maintenance work, painting and general cleaning activities at the clinic, as directed by Sister “Gogo” Rita from the Clinic.
“We divided our group and sent them off to work in different areas – some cleaning the parking area, others in the garden, and a group inside the clinic washing the floors and windows,” said Eustacia.
“By helping other people, we contribute to what we stand for as a company, as Making a Difference, Teamwork and Excellence is our company ethos, said CEO of Kishugu Training, Willie Buchner. Mandela Day is a highlight on our calendar, said Willie. “Every year we contribute to the community on Mandela Day as well as other times of the year, when the need arises.
Chris continued by saying: “We have volunteered at the local SPCA, at a local orphanage and we have helped homeless people with blankets in the past. The academy believes in community engagement and it is very much part of what we do,” he concluded.
