Volunteering and CSI
Early Career Graduate Internship Programme (ECGIP) initiated a School shoe drive
For more than a century, volunteering has been a vibrant part of GE's culture, as both an individual employee activity and an organizational effort. The South African members of the Early Career Graduate Internship Programme (ECGIP) initiated a School shoe drive CSI project aimed at bridging the socio-economic challenges faced by the disadvantaged learners of Bonwelong Primary School in Tembisa by collecting over 100 school shoes in Q1.
More than 1,000 learners at Thushanang Primary School in Mpumalanga to benefit from GE school infrastructure upgrades
GE Steam Power committed R20 million towards the removal of asbestos classrooms and infrastructure upgrades to benefit over 1000 learners. The initiative, which forms part of GE’s school infrastructure upgrade project, also helps the school meet the norms and standards of the School Infrastructure Regulations. In addition to the removal of the harmful material from the building, GE also identified the need to improve the school’s facilities. This will include new ablutions, equipment for the kitchen as well as improve the outdoor recreational spaces, provide an outdoor assembly area, tuck shop and a vegetable garden.
