In commemoration of Woman’s Month, women employees of Eskom will be visiting the Bathandwa Childrens Home in Khayelitsha, as part of their “Dare to Care” project.
Employees made a donation to the home that will improve the lives of the children living there.
“Eskom western region is commemorating women’s month differently this year. We are encouraging our women employees, within the organisation, to give rather than to receive,” says spokesperson for Eskom, Marcelle Adams.
Marcelle adds that Eskom has focused on a number of organisations; from Upington, to George and surrounding areas.
"We want to play a visible role and that’s why we are calling our project 'Dare to Care'," says Adams.
She explains that they are assisting individuals in need, in a meaningful and positive way, through the unconditional sincerity the women employees.
