Tsebo Solutions Group, a world class leader in facilities solutions, catered for key events that formed part of the 2018 Nelson Mandela SleepOut Movement, including the CEO SleepOut, the School SleepOut and the media launch for these events. In doing so, Tsebo was able to support the business community in their cause to create awareness about and raise funds for food security and the plight of poverty in our country – matters that were very near and dear to the heart of our former president, Nelson Mandela.
Through 435 servings served at the events and an additional 120 food parcels, prepared to be handed out to the homeless and less fortunate, Tsebo aimed to contribute to the cause and to follow in the footsteps of Tata Madiba. A number of Tsebo Solutions Group employees also volunteered their time (pro bono) to assist at the events.
With over 47 years of experience in servicing various sites and some of the best businesses across Africa and the Middle East, Tsebo Catering Services seamlessly met the needs of all three momentous occasions.
In line with its farming projects across the country and food security initiatives across the rest of the African continent, Tsebo Solutions Group also identified an opportunity to support the Qunu Food Security Project, one of the two beneficiaries of this year’s SleepOut Movement. The project aims to support food security through the empowerment of women farmers in Africa. It was founded and currently run by Dr Brylyne Chitsunge who is the Pan African Ambassador for Food Security.
Tsebo Solutions Group is a purpose driven organisation that gives back to communities in which it operates. It does this in various ways including education, skills development, job creation and entrepreneurship. It is in its business ethos to create shared value with its stakeholders and deliver sustainable solutions that empower local communities through social impact.
In addition to the business’ 3-year partnership with The Nelson Mandela SleepOut Movement, Tsebo Solutions Group further donated R40 000 in support of the charities aided by the Movement, including the Qunu Food Security Project. This was part of some of the activities the business will embark on for the Nelson Mandela International Day this year.
