We uplift underprivileged children for Mandela Day
Senior Member

In celebration of Mandela Day and the achievements of the late former president, our Kimberley branch paid it forward on 18 July by supporting Lerato Place of Safety in Galeshewe, an institution that houses vulnerable children aged seven to 18.


Bank employees and partners provided a day of fun, entertainment, culture and learning for the children with an aerobics show, a talent show, a maths and science programme, and an art exhibition. Of course, the day was also used as an opportunity to provide the home with much-needed amenities – such as television sets and microwaves for the living areas – a tradition that goes back two years, when we adopted the home.


Since 2013, we have provided Lerato Place of Safety with the following:


  • Built-in cupboards
  • Furniture
  • Clothing
  • Soccer kits
  • Educational toys
  • A new coat of paint in the living room

It was Mandela who said, “Society should be judged by the way it treats its children.” Keeping this in mind, we will continue to do our utmost to support and uplift disadvantaged children to prove that we are a society dedicated to moving our people and country forward.
