Redpath et l’environnement social
Mvelaphanda Preschool Outreach
Region: Gauteng Province, South Africa
Redpath supports numerous community empowerment and enterprise development initiatives across Gauteng, all of which are overseen by The Entrust Foundation and are aimed at providing resources to underprivileged schools and communities, creating jobs and nurturing entrepreneurship. One such initiative, of which Redpath is the main sponsor, is the MiniChess Programme at Mvelaphanda Preschool, which uses chess as part of the school curriculum to teach basic maths, science, language and life skills to preschool and foundation phase learners. In addition, each year on Mandela Day, Redpath staff visit Mvelaphanda to donate much needed supplies and carry out infrastructure and aesthetic upgrades to the school grounds.
Thabang Child and Youth Care Centre Outreach
Region: Limpopo Province, South Africa
Redpath strongly believes in community involvement and aims to take an active role in supporting as many local social programmes as possible in the areas in which we operate. The Thabazimbi area is no exception with Redpath supporting Thabang Child and Youth Care Centre – a non-profit organisation that caters for youths from abusive and dysfunctional domestic situations. Redpath has previously run a series of nature, music and art based activities with the youths and has donated various household items to the centre.
Redpath Australia has partnered with the national mental health charity Beyond Blue to raise awareness of depression and anxiety found within the community. During this initiative, donations were made by Redpath for every hour and tonne of dirt hauled by the ‘blue truck’, affectionately nicknamed ‘Papa Smurf’.
Region: North Bay, Canada
Redpath is proud to be the platinum sponsor for the North Bay, Canada Regional Robotics Competition. FIRST Robotics is a worldwide organization that encourages youth to explore the world of engineering, business and programming.
