Since 2003 the CTICC has worked with partners in the local community, investing in initiatives as education, feeding schemes and urban gardening projects. This initiative is the Local Community Partners (LCP) Programme. The programme’s purpose is to work with local partners in a meaningful and measurable way that can help build a better future for Capetonians.
Every three years, community-based initiatives are selected to be part of the LCP Programme through a staff-driven process. While the CTICC provides support and donation in the form of venue hire, catering and goods, staff and stakeholders are also encouraged to work with and volunteer at these LCPs.
This approach has been one of the critical factors in the CTICC building a sustainable and transformative programme with measurable societal impact. And how this impacts our staff as well. Not only does our team get to be part of purpose-filled activities through volunteering, but they also get to see the social impact of these initiatives.
The impact such as inspiring a child to learn to read or helping a parent provide for their family by supporting their small business said CEO of CTICC, Taubie Motlhabane. The relationship between the CTICC and its LCP partners remains central to the business’ CSR programme.
