African Bank United with Tswelelane Development

“Charity begins at home”, but at Tswelelane Development they believe that it shouldn’t end there but rather act as a starting point for greater deeds.

It was a very special day for the Tswelelane Development team, they were honoured with the presence of a great example of how one small deed can go a long way.

After receiving a generous donation of clothes from African Bank, the Tswelelane Team decide to share their blessing with the community of Ivory Park. The best way the development team could share the clothes with the community was through a ceremony, which resulted in more than 90 people receiving goodie bags. The community members comprised of about 50 elders and 40 youth who received not only a suit but T-shirts as well.

Tswelelane Development`s Managing director, Lehlogonolo Dibakoane said, “as a development they are happy as it’s the first time they have received a donation of new clothes to give to the community”.

The event took place on the 15th of July 2017 at Tswelelane Bakery which houses Tswelelane Development situated in Ivory Park, Midrand.

The developments Admin, Zusiphe Hlanekela said that she doesn’t just volunteer but she volunteers to inspire others to do the same, by sharing the donation with the youth, she hopes it will inspire them to also share the little they have with others who might be more disadvantaged than them.

All of this wouldn’t have been possible if it wasn’t for Mr. Kennedy Dembetembe from African Bank who added that they have been working with Tswelelane Bakery from 2009 and that they would like to be involved with Tswelelane Development moving forward.

Tswelelane Development is a non-profit organization that is based in Ivory Park Midrand, which aims at changing the lives of the community members, especially the vulnerable and underprivileged, from the disabled to orphans and abused children as well as the elders of the community.
