The value of Social Investment
SANGONeT has chosen to play its role in the events of July 18 “Mandela Day” each year. Last year our team visited the Kidshaven Centre in Benoni, where we introduced children into the world of Computers and ICT.
This year, we were fortunate to receive a handsome gift of clothing from the Rhythm City Drama (Pty) LTD under Quizzical Pictures. The clothes were in great condition as they were only used for Actors on screen. This donation was directed to SANGONeT with a view that it has links with deserving NGOs and CBOs. Indeed, we discovered that the Kidshaven will make the donation to multiple beneficiaries; Susan Daly, of the Kidshaven responded; “Our first priority would be to check if we can use any items directly for our children and then we would sell the balance in the charity shop. Our community teams ‘shop’ in the charity shop for clothing for community beneficiaries too (they don’t pay for it!) so a donation like this has the potential to reach MANY beneficiaries AND contribute to Kids Haven’s fundraising needs. Thank you for thinking of us.”
Therefore, SANGONeT forwarded the clothing donation – as Mandela Day gesture – to Kidshaven on Wednesday 17th July 2019. We are, indeed, in touch with a sizeable number of NGOs and Development Practitioners on a daily basis.

Once again, we have experienced the 67 minutes that symbolises the 67 years Madiba dedicated to social justice. President Cyril Ramaphosa promised to visit RX radio, the Red Cross Children’s Hospital radio station staffed by children at the hospital in Rondebosch. We were all encouraged to go beyond the activities for the day by using the July month to embrace the legacy of Nelson Mandela.
