Cell C is gearing up for the 11th installment of the Cell C Take a Girl Child to Work Day® campaign, which takes place on Thursday, 30 May. Companies are now encouraged to polish their plans in support of this sustainable project, which aims to expose girl children in Grades 10, 11 and 12 to real work life experiences beyond the classroom.
Launching with the theme, Empower a Girl – Empower a Nation, the project will use successful alumni, who are now professional working woman, to encourage and empower young girl learners to dream big. This will positively contribute to the socio-economic fabric of our nation.
Companies can register their participation on the Cell C website by clicking on the link www.cellc.co.za/girlchild to access the registration documents.
“We remain committed to the development and upliftment of women and children in our country. We are hopeful that individuals, corporates and private and public sector organisations will again join us in this collaborative act of volunteerism,” says Boni Dlamini, Senior Manager: Corporate Sustainability.
Over the years, Cell C has seen over 600 000 girl learners go through the project since inception with the support of over 1 600 partners ranging from the corporate sector, government, NGOs including the Presidency. Over 600 schools have benefited from this project.
