SED Programme

Abathwa Primary School were the beneficiaries of Conlog’s latest education initiative and scored with two new classrooms, two mobile libraries, uniforms and a fridge.

Conlog is making a very real socio-economic impact on the historically disadvantaged in KwaZulu-Natal, investing in much needed infrastructure and resources at Abathwa Primary situated in the deep rural area of Nquthu in Zululand.

The company was approached by the school in August 2016 for assistance as they had major problems with overcrowding in their classrooms and a lack of resources. Representatives of Conlog’s Corporate Social Responsibility committee visited the school and identified that lack of space was a major problem. Sadly, learners from two totally different grades were sharing one classroom viz Grades two and three shared one classroom while grades four and five shared another classroom. This environment is not conducive to learning and posed a huge challenge for teachers who took turns to teach at different times. It was also found that there was no library or reading material for the learners and many learners who are from impoverished communities had no proper uniforms.

Conlog’s corporate social responsibility committee decided that they would build two new classrooms to overcome the space shortage and that there would be no more sharing of classrooms. Furthermore, they also donated two mobile libraries with two hundred books each, with a view to boost the literacy rate at the school. Some of the underprivileged learners were also handed a full set of uniforms complete with track suits and jerseys and the excited learners could not contain themselves at the handover function held at the school in September last year.

Thokozani Pre-School

Thokozani Pre-School, in the Elundini Municipality near Mont Fletcher in the Eastern Cape, was in serious need of assistance. The school was situated in an old, delapidated crumbling building, leaving the young students in a very unsafe environment, and susceptible to the elements.
It reached a point where the structure could not be used anymore, and instead, a generous community member allowed the school to be operated from her home, providing the youngsters with a better environment to spend their days in, while supplying them with fresh, warm meals.
Conlog has decided to help this community, and build Thokozani Pre-School a new structure to operate from, complete with running electricity, tanks for reusable water and furniture. This is a much needed helping-hand for this small community, especially for the young learners that attend Thokozani.
The official hand-over was held on 18 July 2017, to coincide with Nelson Mandela Day. Several dignitaries and members from the municipality were in attendence, along with representatives from Conlog.

Umlazi Place of Safety

Conlog (Pty) Ltd Management and Staff provide festive cheer for the surrounding community and Children’s Home. There was much joy and laughter on Thursday, 14 December 2017, when management and staff of Conlog visited their neighbours, members of the Lacey Road informal settlement in the Sydenham area and kids at the Umlazi Place of Safety. Conlog handed over food hampers to fifty families living in the Lacey Road informal settlement, to bring some much needed relief to the poorest of the poor in the community. The handover was also attended by Deputy Mayor, Fawzia Peer who applauded Conlog for embracing their needy neighbours and for thinking about the less fortunate members of our community.

Conlog  also visited the Umlazi Place of Safety, and provided gifts, goodie bags and cosmetics to the twenty nine children who have been placed at the Umlazi Place of Safety. The kids were absolutely delighted when the “Spur on Wheels” vehicle arrived and treated everyone at the home to a scrumptious meal, also courtesy of Conlog. These were indeed moments of joy, for these young lives that have been affected by a range of social challenges.

Commenting on his staff’s commitment to these initiatives, Commercial Director, Mr Sibusiso Skosana, said: “Our company’s philosophy, which is the cornerstone of Conlog (Pty) Ltd.’s existence, is ‘beyond profitability’ and it is hugely heartening to have seen members of our staff embracing this concept, going well beyond their daily business activities to so willingly give of themselves for the benefit of those less fortunate members of our community.” Conlog’s Social Responsibility Officer and regular participant in socio-economic activities, Mrs Zama Xulu, said: “Society today takes so much for granted and very few people take the time to consider the plight of those who face difficulties, often not of their making.” She added: “I am particularly sensitive and passionate about babies and young children, whose young, innocent lives are turned upside down as a result of being orphaned, abandoned, neglected or abused. For me, this was an ideal opportunity to make a significant difference in these young lives; an opportunity to show them that there are people who do care about them.” “It was humbling to be a part of such a noble initiative and it is my hope that each year greater numbers of people will be encouraged to do more, more regularly to assist those in need of our support, love and care,” Mrs Xulu concluded.

SED Initiative – Conlog Donates A Science Laboratory

Conlog donates Science Laboratory

SA’s quality of maths and science education once again failed to impress, as the country was ranked last among 140 economies on the World Economic Forum (WEF) Global Competitiveness Index . With this uppermost in their mind, Conlog, a Durban-based Company which is the world’s leading metering solutions provider to utilities and municipalities are determined to change this through providing learners with the best possible resources and ultimately improve science results.

Malefo Secondary School in Tweelagte outside Rustenburg became the first school in the North West to receive a state-of-the-art science laboratory. There was jubilation, excitement and joy at the official handover function which was attended by community members, parents, local councillors and Conlog.

Conlog committed to R406 000.00 to fund this project. ”A good education is founded on the premise that the environment be conducive to the practice of learning. It should be able to make available to learners the infrastructure, facilities and resources necessary for learning. Sadly, in South Africa the legacy of our past does not always render this basic fundamental a reality. All too often we find that our country’s schools – especially those serving the historically disadvantaged or today’s lower income groups – do not measure-up. Many fall short in terms of both infrastructure and the provision of the tools necessary to give effect to efficient teaching and effective learning. We, at Conlog hope that our contribution is a small step to making an improvement to the scholars of Malefo Secondary” added Sibusiso Skosana.

Pauline Mokhutle, acting chief director in the North West department of education in Bojanala district said “We hope that this science laboratory will help to improve the performance of learners in Science subjects at our local schools. This will enable them to go on to university and ultimately begin careers in engineering and scientific fields which will contribute to a vibrant economy.” It is clear that by providing essential equipment in classrooms we can boost academic performance at schools. Corporate South Africa has a critical role to play in this process and we are proud that Conlog has chosen Malefo Secondary School to be a part of this initiative”

According to Mr Louis Taylor, Director of Partnerships in education, said the DBE welcomes this initiative by Conlog and will ensure that the Science Laboratory donated by Conlog will be optimized by Malefo Secondary.

Ride2School

Conlog and iBelive partnered to contribute to the Education sector in rural Limpopo by donating bicycles and 2 x 12m storage containers to the needy learners of Mokhapa and Mahlane Secondary schools.

The event commenced at the Golden aces sports grounds by the outskirt community closer to where the two containers are placed where learners will each morning pick a bike and return it back after school each day to manage continuity as well as sustainability.

Community members, learners and triable leaders graced the event. One key stakeholder was a local Pastor Maake in the community who joined hands by contributing 100pair of shoes to the needy Primary kids from the same community.

Messages of sincere appreciation were sent through to Conlog by the Mayor, Principal, Tribal office representatives, School Principals, Department of community safety as well as the learners themselves.

According to the iBelive Foundation, CONLOG has made an indelible mark, which will lead to many pupils realising their dreams. The wonderful gesture, of donating bikes, is more than that. It’s a statement of encouragement to the pupils that they can reach their dreams.

Testimonials

Very satisfied Conlog client

Good Day to you Selvan
A VERY big thank you to you for all your efforts it is greatly appreciated. Yes I have had feedback & a house call from Rajesh Surji from the municipality this morning bright & early.

After an evaluation from him he says that he strongly believes that we are directly connected to the pole & receiving electricity free of charge with no worry of running at a low supply.

I am not an expert but I highly doubt that as it has been ages since the municipal guys last came out to rectify a complaint but nonetheless I have stopped using my geyser in order to preserve units that were last loaded on the 13/06/17. I was also able to log my connection fault yesterday & furnished Rajesh with my reference number which he said he will follow up on.

May I just again reiterate my sincerest gratitude to you & the Conlog team that not only contacted and tried to assist me but went the extra mile to see how further you Sir could assist me regarding my enquiry by sending someone in the municipality to look into my issue.

Thank you Sir. There are very few people left who go to the extent that you have gone with customer service even to the extent of it being out of your portfolio.
You have gone beyond your call of duty & as a citizen I would like to truly acknowledge your dedication to service excellence.
May you continue to prosper & excell in all you put your hands & heart to do.
