2014 - SOCIO-ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS
TCTA issues a passport to the future
TCTA has embarked on a CSI project entitled “Passport to the Future”. The initiative is aimed at equipping the youth in the Greater Tubatse Local Municipality areas with basic skills needed in the current job market and is also directed at preparing them for the future. This is the first of its kind at TCTA and is inspired by the Olifants River Water Resource Development Project
TCTA participates in the 2014 Youth Summit
The Annual Youth Water Summit was held from 29 – 5 July 2014 at the Birchwood Hotel, in the East Rand. TCTA participated in the programme through exhibition. With the Project Naledi Bursary Scheme in full swing, this was the perfect place for us to be in order to sell the programme to the learners. The Scheme is a skills development intervention with an objective of ensuring a sustainable supply of trained and skilled people to meet its future human resource.
67 minutes for a good cause
Sakhisizwe day-care centre got TCTA staff to swop their office clothes for overalls in celebration of the International Mandela Day on Friday, 18 July 2014.
11 staff members arrived at Mamello, a small informal settlement just outside VRESAP in the Vaal, armed with paint brushes and 80 litres of paint ready to spend their 67 minutes in action. This was inspired by this year’s theme Take Action. Inspire Change…Make every day A Mandela Day. Without wasting any time, the crew got down to business, painting one of the containers used by the children as a classroom.
