Sustainable improved quality of life requires community engagement.

Mariveni, Mabundla and Seloane farms near Tzaneen were surprised with gifts of jackets and shirts for the trustees, 100 soccer balls and a basic library book collection for their community centre.

Over the years pockets of Capespan Blue Hand initiatives in Mpumalanga started with stationery and T-shirt donations to senior learners at both Ben Viljoen Secondary School in Groblersdal and Ben Vorster High School in Tzaneen.

Capespan Blue Hand also kicked off a vegetable garden project at Letaba School for the Disabled in Nkowankowa with a cash donation. The objective was to provide daily fresh produce for 210 physically disabled and cerebral palsied children of all ages.

Based near Addo in the Sundays River Valley, Thembalethu Trust cares for people living with HIV/AIDS, helping to give young children a better start in life and works with the youth to prevent AIDS. In addition to staff donations and a corporate donation, Capespan followed this up with a substantial donation consisting of a PC, printer and software plus Capespan corporate wear.

Commencing our involvement with the Namibia Grape Company (NGC), Capespan SA made a large donation of sport kit and equipment as an initial funding.
