Elingo has named Legacy Community Development as one of its corporate social investment projects of choice.
Based in Kayamandi, a suburb of Stellenbosch in the Western Cape, Legacy Community Development plays a critical role in its community and runs several initiatives including an afterschool centre, a childhood development programme, a primary school development programme, a teenage outreach programme, a learnership programme for Grade 11 students and a career guidance initiative.
“What started from humble beginnings in 2001 has grown into a cornerstone of the Kayamandi community, said Louise Fourie, MD of Legacy Community Development.
“We are passionate about building our community and providing children as well as adults with the support they need. A core focus of many of our programmes is to provide people with the skills to become employable in a digital society,”
For Henning Lange, CIO at Elingo, the passion and commitment shown by Legacy Community Development and the work it does in Kayamandi made it a natural choice for the organisation.
“As a provider of world-class ICT solutions tailored with best practice local knowledge and expertise, Elingo values and praises the work done by Legacy Community Development. Its 360-degree approach towards the wellness development of children, teenagers and adults reflect our own approach when it comes to solutions development,” he said.
