Lending a helping hand (15/10/2015)
Clean C, an NPO which organises a number of community upliftment projects for underprivileged people, recently challenged EES Africa (Pty) Ltd to a beach clean-up. EES, management, engineering and auditing services company, took up this challenge, and last week, under the guidance of Clean C, descended upon the Kalk Bay beach situated next to the harbour. After some very productive and worthwhile time spent there cleaning up litter, the beach looked shiny, fresh and clean! EES challenges other companies to do the same at beaches not far from where they are located in order to achieve sustainability which is part of the EES business approach.
Clean C believes in engaging with communities on different levels with a ‘generational’ approach to the many challenges faced in underprivileged communities. In addition to beach cleanups, its initiatives include crèche and orphanage makeovers, park upliftment projects, graffiti defacing, and youth leadership imbizos.
