Diepsloot Community / Powergate Projects

Our directors provide professional services to Powergate Projects at no charge in support of the development of the Diepsloot community on behalf of Steyn City Developments.

The following excerpt is taken from the article “Article Name”:

Steyn City is in the early phases of becoming South Africa’s most visionary mixed-use lifestyle development to date. The estate will stretch over approximately 2 000 acres of wooded parkland and comprise commercial, retail, residential and leisure components, including an 18-hole Nicklaus Design golf course, offering residents a lifestyle unlike any other. Due to the enormous scope of the development, a key focus for the developers has been job creation and local community empowerment opportunities within the neighbouring greater Diepsloot region.

The Steyn City skills centre is a sponsored initiative providing training opportunities to people from the local communities by equipping them with the necessary skills to work on-site, so that they, too, can benefit from this large development currently underway on their doorstep.

The skills centre offers a course in bricklaying and plastering to 10 students at a time for the duration of two months and covers both theoretical and practical elements. On successful completion, the graduates obtain a legitimate qualification and employment on-site, as well as a new skill set for life. The first 10 graduates were recently awarded their qualifications and are now working at various building sites within the development.

Brighton Mudau, director of Powergate, the micro-company managing the skills centre comments, “The centre is sponsored by the development project’s investment and management team to ensure that the local communities also benefit from what will become Steyn City,” he says. “Facilitating these training programmes when individuals are so eager to learn and acquire skills that will inevitably benefit themselves and their families is a rewarding experience. The centre has the capacity for additional training so in future, we hope to increase the number of courses offered and continue to enrich the lives of the local communities through skills development.”

roosevelt extension nursery school

Roosevelt Extension Nursery School / Ladybird Bursary Fund

Roosevelt Extension Nursery School is a community-owned nursery school that was established in 1964. The school has since inception given thousands of pre-school children a solid start to their school careers and provided essential education to children living in the community who come from disadvantaged backgrounds.

In 1996 the school was privatised and now runs as a registered Public Benefit Organisation. Despite having no government funding, the Roosevelt school, in realising its contribution to the community and its important role in the education of children, established the Ladybird Bursary Fund. The purpose of this fund is to provide education to children living in the community who come from disadvantaged backgrounds and relies on contributions from corporates and private individuals.

Metrum Project Management supports the school by donating funds towards the education of two of the scholars – Otshepeng Molaetsi and Boitshepo Morabeng.
