Sedibeng Water’s Corporate Social Investment (CSI) Programme is designed to help the organisation to refocus its resources and efforts in ways that benefit the society and the organisation itself. The Corporate Social Investment Programme reflects the unique requirements of communities and contributes towards addressing the real needs of communities in our operational area. Our Corporate Social Investment activities have enhanced the organisation’s image and assisted in building a strong brand identity. The CSI Programme has also ensured that the organisation continuously promotes customer goodwill and loyalty.
Our CSI Programme is geared towards cause worthy initiatives by civil society. The special needs of previously disadvantaged communities are taken into account when considering any request for assistance. Therefore, vulnerable members of our society and schools have been prioritised. This includes the provision of donations, sponsorships and the development of sports and arts. To ensure accountability, monthly meetings are held with beneficiaries, while annual reviews are also conducted to assess the impact of the organisation’s contributions within their respective communities.
