IWC and Eskom Join Forces to Empower Youth with School Clothing Hampers

In the spirit of Youth Month, IWC and Eskom united to make a meaningful impact on the lives of young learners. Together, we delivered school clothing hampers to four schools located in the Witbank and Bronkhorstpruit areas, east of Gauteng.

As part of IWC’s commitment to corporate social investment for the Eskom Kusilie project, school clothing and shoe hampers worth R200,000 were distributed among more than 250 learners from these four schools. This initiative seeks to create a positive change in the lives of learners, many of whom come from disadvantaged families within the community surrounding the Kusilie Power Station.

The distribution of the clothing hampers was led by Gordon Beckett, Projects Director of IWC, Christine Storey, Marketing Manager, and Richard Cardoso, Project Manager of the Kusili Power Station refurbishment project. They were joined by Zandi Shangewere, Project General Manager from Eskom. Together, they handed out the hampers to the children from Zithobeni High School, Dan Kutumela High School, Nkonjane Primary School, and Itireleng Primary School.

Each school welcomed the IWC and Eskom team in its own unique way, showcasing extraordinary talent and creativity. The students entertained the guests with inspiring poetry, soulful hymns, and even a catchy pop song. The performances brought smiles and joy to everyone present, despite the challenges these children face on a daily basis.

We are immensely privileged to have the opportunity to give back to our communities, and we remain committed to creating a positive and lasting legacy. The happiness and gratitude we witnessed from the children reminds us of the importance of our work and drives us to continue making a difference in the lives of young people.

As IWC and Eskom, we are proud to collaborate in this endeavour and are grateful for the support and encouragement we have received. Together, we will keep focusing on building a brighter future and nurturing the potential of our youth.
