The Corporate Social Responsibility Committee is the IRBA’s formal approach for its involvement with community projects and Social Economic Development (SED) organisations. The functions and projects of this committee are managed mostly through donations from staff members and these are then matched by the IRBA.
The IRBA adopted feeding scheme learners from Nobel Primary School, which is located within the Modderfontein precinct. The IRBA took responsibility of supporting the feeding scheme learners, who reside predominantly in the Tembisa area, with various donations.
Below is the list of projects that were undertaken by the committee during the year under review:
Nobel Primary conquered the IRBA with a winning score of 3-1. Stationery, toiletries and panty items were generously donated to the school.
A school uniform drive was hosted at the Nobel Primary School during breaktime, where 22 learners received giftpacks from the IRBA. The gift packs included school uniforms, school shoes, socks and a snack. The children ranged from the ages 7 to 12. Grocery items was donated to the feeding scheme of the school to assist with the pantry stock items.
The IRBA took pleasure in sponsoring one learner from Alexandra High School with a matric farewell dress and shoes. The matric dance took place during December and the opportunity ensured the learner received attire to make it possible for her to attend the memorable event.
The IRBA team went back to the Nobel Primary School and presented 30 learners with track suits to help keep them warm during the winter season.
