Mahindra South Africa has initiated a social responsibility program in conjunction with Rotary South Africa to light up the lives of less fortunate matric pupils.
The program involves the donation of a solar power and battery-operated lamp with a pencil bag to ensure that matric students from disadvantaged communities have adequate light by which to study after dark.
The company will supply some 5 000 lamps and pencil bags with stationery to matric pupils at selected schools countrywide. MSA's logistics supplier Savino del Bene has taken on the mammoth task of transporting this important cargo to the various handover points.
The handover of the lamps and pencil bags will be facilitated by Mahindras national dealer network, together with Rotary SA clubs in each area.
