SEL to spend E570 000 in next year’s 21 Days of Y'ello Care

Sunday Observer - - NEWS -

Af­ter a suc­cess­ful part­ner­ship with Swazi MTN dur­ing this year, Swazi­land Em­pow­er­ment Lim­ited (SEL) has pledged to pump in E570 000 in the Swazi MTN flag­ship cor­po­rate so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity (CSR) pro­gramme.

This was dis­closed by SEL CSR Chair­man Shaka Nd­langa­mandla. He said the board gave them a green light to use this amount. Last year, the com­pany pumped E300 000 af­ter an in­vi­ta­tion by Swazi MTN to part­ner with them in the CRS pro­gramme. Nd­langa­mandla said this qual­i­fied them as ma­jor spon­sors of the pro­gramme and they got sig­nif­i­cant re­sults out of this in­vest­ment. “We got a lot of mileage and ex­pe­ri­ence from the projects that we did with Swazi MTN,” he said. He said the brand mileage was fur­ther boosted by the re­cent first place crown­ing of Swazi MTN by the group out of the 22 coun­tries where the com­pany op­er­ates in.Nd­langa­mandla said they also have other projects in the pipe­line for the 2017/18 fi­nan­cial year which in­cluded the Water Life project, vo­ca­tional schol­ar­ship fund and ceil­ing for Ekhwezi Pri­mary School new class­rooms. He said their ini­tial CRS bud­get was set at E600 000.

“We have al­ready utilised about E308 000 and we are now left with a bal­ance of about E291 000,” he said.
