At Bongani Rainmaker we are committed to the upliftment of our staff, business partners and community. We support and participate in government initiatives to curb unemployment and increase skills development and training in organisations and businesses across the country.
The Youth Employment Service (YES) initiative was launched in an effort to create 1 million, 12-month job opportunities for young people. At BRL, in full support of President Ramaphosa’s vision, we have created opportunities for 5 young people to gain workplace experience through the YES initiative.
BLACK SME TOWNSHIP SUPPORT
In line with Gauteng Premier David Makhura’s vision and policies, Bongani Rainmaker is dedicated to supporting township SMMEs by utilising their services at every given opportunity.
In addition to BRL drivers and distributors, we have our Owner-Driver Scheme (ODS). Our ODS encourages the utilisation and development of local SMMEs in the delivery sector.
BRL is part of the amazing South African culture of ubuntu. In the spirit of giving back, we have several initiatives in the community:
Palesa Pads are reusable sanitary towels manufactured by women in South Africa. They are affordable and can last up to 5 years – the length of a girl’s high school career. Palesa Pads are targeted at the disadvantaged and less fortunate communities in and around South Africa.
Together with the Tlhatlhogi Foundation, Bongani Rainmaker have donated thousands of Palesa Pads to girls in disadvantaged areas all over Gauteng. These donations have ensured that girls attend school through their menstrual cycle and do not miss a day of education, which is our biggest passion.
Nelson Mandela Day
For Mandela Day in 2019, Pearson donated early-learning care material to hundreds of pre-schools in Gauteng. Bongani Rainmaker facilitated the picking, packing and distribution of all the material donated to the Early Care Foundation.
Other initiatives include donations to Little Eden and Oliver’s House, stationery kits and jungle gyms to schools in Gauteng.
