Social responsibility


Buscor (Pty) Ltd is not only concerned about the upliftment of its own employees, but also the communities it serves, and we are proud of the on-going projects geared towards this upliftment.


In order to give the required attention to this most important aspect, Buscor Development was established specifically for this purpose. An amount of R7 million is channelled through Buscor Development for various projects each year.(Excluding training, clinic and bursaries)


Herewith a summary of some of the projects Buscor (Pty) Ltd Development is proud of and involved in:

 

The Siyaphila Old Age Centre

 





The Siyaphila Old Age Centre is situated in the Msogwaba township that forms part of the Mbombela Municipality and was built at a cost of R1 million.

 

The Centre accommodates ± 70 pensioners on a daily basis, many of which still support their children and grandchildren.

 

Buscor Development's main mission is to empower the elderly by teaching them life skills which they can use to enrich their lives. The objective is to enhance communication and group activities amongst the elderly and to broaden their vision and knowledge by organising social activities and educational trips. ABET training which is offered daily, establishes self-empowerment and senior citizens are also provided with a service centre where they can receive care and assistance.

 


The following programmes are offered at the Centre:

  • Carpentry / cabinet making
  • Sewing / knitting
  • Basket weaving
  • Beadwork
  • Reed mat work

 

The elderly receive a wholesome meal at the Centre and can attend clinic services, capacity building, daily exercising and product training.

 

Buscor Development contributes over R1 million per annum towards managing the Centre.


ECD (Early Childhood Development) Project



Buscor Development is committed by playing a major role in the community it serves. To achieve this all resources available are put to work. The ECD (Early Childhood Development) project started in 2004 when it was officially opened by the MEC of Education – Mr C Padayachee. Buscor firmly believe in assisting those less fortunate and ensuring that they receive the necessary education.

Therefore this project is a unique concept comprising a Quantum Sprinter which was converted as a Learning Safari vehicle, managed by two ECD Facilitators. Informal pre-schools and disadvantaged children are identified in the communities and the ECD Facilitators are committed to ensuring that young, underprivileged children experience quality care and proper education. The ECD Project also provides the platform where the children can receive first-hand experience with educational toys and learning materials.

The facilitators also offer workshops and programmes to the practitioners aimed at enhancing them so that they are geared up to encourage and inspire their learners and educate them according to standard requirements to further their futures.

The two facilitators visit an average of 38 schools and reach about 1 050 children per month.
The initial cost to start the project amounted to R320 000.

Buscor Development contributes R600 000 per annum towards this project.
