Ehlanzeni TVET College and Absa reinforce fight against Covid-19

Public institutions are encouraged to engage in beneficial partnerships with the private sector in efforts to ensure that the College products are holistically developed and moulded.

This is not only for the world of work but also for responsible citizenship but as means that skills alone are not sufficient if the social element is not enhanced as well. The College has a good relationship with ABSA and that got demonstrated when ABSA donated personal protective equipment aimed at combating the Covid-19 spread. On the 16th of September, Ehlanzeni TVET College received donations from ABSA Bank Limited in an occasion that took place at the Nelspruit Campus.

A number of activities were highlighted wherein the bank is involved in resonance with their social responsibility culture, these included but not necessarily limited to helping those who were unable to pay their house bonds and related bills. In this instance, ABSA felt it appropriate to donate the 1600 face masks and 766x750ml of hand sanitisers to Ehlanzeni TVET College.

The principal, Mr Mbuyane described the donation as perfectly timed as it came at a time when complacency was beginning to creep in, when most are beginning to think that thinking Coronavirus is over. He further pleaded with all the beneficiaries, the students and staff to utilise the noble gifts appropriately. He further gave ABSA the assurance that the equipment will never be traded for anything but used to save the lives of the Ehlanzeni’s community in line with its noble intent. In his closing remarks the Deputy Principal Academic, Judas Siboza, welcomed the donation and thanked ABSA for staying true to the beneficial public-private partnership existing between the two institutions. Siboza described the donation as “an investment beyond literal investment.”
