Social Responsibility from iWMS


iWMS partners with Partners for Possibility

iWMS Supply Chain Software (iWMS) has partnered with Partners for Possibility (PFP), a cross-sectorial reciprocal partnership between Business, Government and the Social Sector. Its primary aim is to help resolve educational issues in South Africa. Business Leaders offer their skills and intellectual capital, in a mentoring capacity, to School Principals, empowering them to become change leaders in their schools and communities.


iWMS has joined Leadership Circle 13 in the organisation. iWMS will be supporting Rebonwe Primary School in Ivory Park, Gauteng. It is a non-fee paying school, with each of the 2 043 students enjoying a good education and a meal each day in an organised and clean environment. Equipment and facilities are limited with the largest class at the school being 67 children.


The Government funds the school to the tune of R2m per annum to pay for 52 educators and the school’s feeding scheme. The balance of the budget is raised from donations and events.


iWMS’ involvement with Rebonwe Primary School will be to share their organisational, management and IT expertise with the Principal and Educators and monitor their successes. Richard Evans and Simon Tlhabane, the Rebonwe Primary School principle, will both attend a number of training classes as well as meet on a regular basis for mentoring.


iWMS is very excited about this initiative. They have a strong belief that by improving education in South Africa they can make a significant difference to the country’s future. In addition, they have the opportunity of impacting positively on the current and future lives of the School’s 2 043 students.


“Over the years I have put a lot of thought into the root of some of the challenges we face in South Africa and education has continuously stood out as the true cause of a number of them.” said Richard Evans “ There is no “quick fix” to these challenges and a long term commitment is required from society to share knowledge and expertise and mentor educators. Hence iWMS and I are investing our time and money in PFP and in Rebonwe Primary School in particular. ” Richard Evans continued.

Inspired by Mandela day, iWMS keeps residents of Zamani warm in the Winter.

On the 18th July 2013, Nelson Mandela Day, a lot of the iWMS team was involved in a full day demo to a customer so we decided to use the lunch break to build winter hampers for some needy residents from Zamani near Memel in the Freestate. We picked Zamani because we know that it can get exceptionally cold there in the winter and because we have strong connections in the community which allow us to make sure that the hampers go to good homes. Support for Zamani has continued from that humble beginning.

 

A big thank you to Letta Ngobeni and the Robertson and Evans families who helped us distribute the parcels. Below are some pictures of putting the hampers together and distributing them.
