Cell C is gearing up for the 11th instalment 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 worklife 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 the nation.
Companies can register their participation on the Cell C Web site by going to www.cellc.co.za/girlshild 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 at Cell C.
Over the years, Cell C has seen more than 600 000 girl learners go through the project since inception with the support of over 1 600 partners ranging from the corporate sector to government and NGOs, including the Presidency. More than 600 schools have benefited from this project.
