'MAD' Campaign - Sizwe Sethu


On 18 July 2010 Aveng launched its ‘MAKING A DIFFERENCE’ campaign. This campaign will be launched every year on 18 July with an emphasis on making a difference in a specific area, this year the focus was on education, namely pre-schools. As pre-schools receive very little, if any, funding from the government, Aveng set out to deliver skills to pre-schools battling with minimum resources.

Sizwe Sethu - The Aveng Moolmans Head Office researched a few areas and Sizwe Sethu School in Tembisa was adopted as the pre-school that would most benefit from the help that our company had to offer. Collections of groceries, toys and clothes were made and then delivered to the school. Fifty sleeping mats were donated as well as a computer and fax machine to help the principal manage her administrative duties. Aveng Moolmans volunteers gathered at the pre-school over four Saturdays where they prepared and then painted all the inside walls. An outside contractor was hired to replace the outside roof and put in ceilings in four of the rooms. All in all the staff felt privileged to be part of such a selfless experience.
