Actom’s John Thompson division carried out four major corporate social responsibility (CSI) projects recently to uplift previously disadvantaged communities near Grootvlei power station in Mpumalanga. The projects were undertaken as part of contract obligations linked to two contracts currently in operation at Grootvlei by the company’s Utility Boilers and Environmental Solutions business unit. The projects have focused on the development and enhancement of facilities and services in the Dipaleseng Municipality towards improving the living and working conditions of the community, including providing opportunities to small and medium contractors in the area to carry out some of the work involved in the projects. The company has spent over R4-million on the four projects, which included the refurbishment of Tshepeha Secondary School; the refurbishment of Tegwan’s Nest Primary School; the provision of a new library for Greylingstad’s Nthoroane township community; and the provision of flush-toilets to replace pit-toilets at Tegwan’s Nest Primary School.
