Mandela Day 2023

MANDELA DAY 2023 In a remarkable display of compassion and solidarity, Conlog embarked on a mission to assist the community of Dube Village. Recognizing the urgent need for support following a devastating natural disaster, Conlog organized an event to hand over the food parcels, clothes, and blankets that were collected during the winter drive. With a focus on making a tangible difference in the lives of those affected, the team worked diligently to ensure the event’s success. Dube Village, nestled in the Inanda region, recently suffered the consequences of a natural disaster that left its residents vulnerable and in dire need of assistance. Recognizing the gravity of the situation, Conlog made the conscientious decision to direct their winter drive efforts toward this community. The aim was to provide essential resources and support to alleviate some of the hardships faced by the affected families. On 18 July 2023, Mandela Day, the Conlog team gathered at Dube Village to distribute the collected supplies and show solidarity with the community. The event was organized with meticulous care, ensuring that the assistance provided would have a meaningful impact on the lives of those in need. The team handed out 100 food hampers, carefully curated to address the nutritional needs of the recipients. In addition to the food hampers, Conlog arranged for a home-cooked meal to be shared with the community members. The warm, nourishing meal not only provided sustenance but also fostered a sense of togetherness and camaraderie. This gesture highlighted the importance of human connection and the power of shared experiences, especially during challenging times. The initiative in Dube Village served as a powerful symbol of solidarity and compassion and allowed us to truly live in our purpose of enriching lives. By proactively responding to the community’s needs, the company exemplified the values espoused by Nelson Mandela and highlighted the transformative potential of collective action. The event not only provided immediate relief but also inspired hope and uplifted the spirits of the community members. We would like to express my deepest gratitude to all the dedicated employees for their incredible generosity and unwavering commitment in taking part in fundraising activities and selflessly contributing resources that truly made a profound impact on the Dube village community. Your collective efforts have brought about positive change and uplifted the lives of countless individuals. We’d also like to extend a big thank you to the remarkable team responsible for preparing for and organizing the handover event, your hard work and dedication ensured its resounding success.

SED Initiative

SED INITIATIVE – CONLOG DONATES A SCIENCE LABORATORY Conlog committed to a R406 000.00 donation to Malefo Secondary School state-of-the-art science lab project . ”A good education is founded on the premise that the environment be conducive to the practice of learning. It should be able to make available to learners the infrastructure, facilities and resources necessary for learning. Sadly, in South Africa the legacy of our past does not always render this basic fundamental a reality. All too often we find that our country’s schools – especially those serving the historically disadvantaged or today’s lower income groups – do not measure-up. Many fall short in terms of both infrastructure and the provision of the tools necessary to give effect to efficient teaching and effective learning. We, at Conlog hope that our contribution is a small step to making an improvement to the scholars of Malefo Secondary” added Sibusiso Skosana. Pauline Mokhutle, acting chief director in the North West department of education in Bojanala district said “We hope that this science laboratory will help to improve the performance of learners in Science subjects at our local schools. This will enable them to go on to university and ultimately begin careers in engineering and scientific fields which will contribute to a vibrant economy.” It is clear that by providing essential equipment in classrooms we can boost academic performance at schools. Corporate South Africa has a critical role to play in this process and we are proud that Conlog has chosen Malefo Secondary School to be a part of this initiative”. According to Mr Louis Taylor, Director of Partnerships in education, said the DBE welcomes this initiative by Conlog and will ensure that the Science Laboratory donated by Conlog will be optimized by Malefo Secondary.

SED Programme

SED PROGRAMME Abathwa Primary School, in Nquthu KwaZulu-Natal, were the beneficiaries of Conlog’s education initiative which provided two new classrooms, two mobile libraries, uniforms and a fridge. The company was approached by the school in August 2016 to assist with overcrowding in their classrooms and lack of resources. Learners from different grades were compelled to share the same classrooms which resulted in disrupted learning and development. Conlog adopted this initiative to make a positive contribution to the community that will have long-term impact on the lives of its members.
