Hollywoodbets and the Hollywood Foundation Contribute R50 000 to the Ndlovu Care Group through their Durban July Corporate Social Investment (CSI) Initiative
The Hollywood Foundation continues to highlight the importance of community development by lending a helping hand to organisations which are instrumental in building and conserving our communities. As part of the Hollywoodbets Durban July CSI Initiative in Limpopo, the Hollywood Foundation, through its Arts and Culture pillar, extended its generous support to the Ndlovu Care Group, an NPO affiliated to the Ndlovu Youth Choir.
The Ndlovu Care Group was established in 1994, with a vision to create hope and development opportunities to build healthy responsible and self-sustaining communities, in response to the high prevalence of HIV/AIDS, the lack of basic services and limited medical infrastructure in rural Limpopo. The group aims to provide comprehensive evidence-based solutions and CSI programmes which address healthcare, child and youth needs, water, sanitation, hygiene, infrastructure support, and other social challenges within the community.
On 12 July, the Purple Team in Limpopo was excited to venture out to the Sekhukhune District in Limpopo, to pay a special visit to the Ndlovu Care Group. A much-needed contribution of R50 000 was handed over to organisation’s representatives on the day, which will go towards their Arts and Culture development programmes. Laurens Duvhenage, CEO for Ndlovu Care Group expressed her gratitude to the Purple Team and said, “We are grateful for the contribution. The direct beneficiaries are the choristers and the funding will not only enhance the choir’s training and performances, it will also assist with CSI outreach programmes which empower young individuals and foster the positive impact of music within the community”.
