RedAnt Design has an established corporate social investment programme.
In deciding on who the beneficiaries would be we used the following criteria:
- The project should benefit children and educational causes, preferably in rural areas.
- The beneficiary had to be well administered and funds had to be used for projects rather than administration.
- The Trustees had to be suitably qualified and dedicated to the ideals of the trust.
- The project had to be of a nature that our employees could actually visit from time to time and develop new ways to assist other than merely making financial contributions.
After extensive research we decided on the Buffelshoek Trust, which benefits poverty-stricken communities in the Limpopo and Mpumalanga provinces of South Africa. The trust has many different projects, from education to health and sports facilities. The Buffelshoek Trust was a winner in the Mail and Guardian “Investing in Education” category in 2006 and has to date spent well over R30-million in the area.
In 2012 we identified a pressing need for funding at The Sunshine Centre in Craighall, Johannesburg, close to RedAnt Design. The Sunshine Association is committed to the development of children with disabilities and intellectual, developmental or physical delays. It works in partnership with families, communities and professionals to offer these children, their families and communities the vital services they require. The Sunshine Centre fits our ongoing CSI criteria and we are happy to be able to help.
