Eskom in the Capricorn District hosted“Take a Girl Child to Work day” Eskom in the Capricorn District hosted 15 girl learners for Take a Girl Child to Work day from Derek Kobe, Matladi and Mahlogedi Secondary Schools in the Lepelle-Nkumpi Municipality. The learners are currently in grade 10 and 11.The purpose of the engagement was to inform the learners about how our business functions, bursary opportunities offered by the organisation and to take the girls through daily work routines done by Eskom employees in different departments. Take a Girl Child to Work is an annual corporate social investment event, held in South Africa since 2003. Companies involved organise for female learners (school pupils), usually from disadvantaged backgrounds, to spend the day at their place of work on the last Thursday of May. The initiative is organised by Cell C, a cellular service provider, and endorsed by the South African Department of Education. It has been called South Africa’s “largest collaborative act of volunteerism. The event took place at Lebowakgomo CNC (Customer Network Centre) on Thursday, 24 May 2018. Eskom’s Limpopo Middle Manager- Stakeholder Relations and Communications, Tess Maroos-Mabitsela said ” we are proud to be part of this worthy cause. It is our hope that through these interactions with the girl leaners, we broaden their knowledge about careers they never thought of”. It was also during the proceedings of the day that Eskom took the opportunity to encourage them to report illegal connections by sending anonymous message on 32211.
