UMSO CONSTRUCTION (PTY) LTD CORPORATE SOCIAL INVESTMENT BACK GROUND AND STORIE SINCE 2005 .
This is not easy to tell nor to understand the meaning of UBUNTU to our culturally diverse South African society, not until such time you have found yourself within you,i.e. who are you and where do you come from? Ubuntu remains a cornerstone of our humanity to others i.e. embracing each other without looking along the racial lines, but wishing that all humans under normal circumstances are suppose to have equal opportunities that would make them to lead a normal life. However this has proved not possible , because the World itself is not normal to suit us all in an equal manner.
In this introduction it is my wish that all humankind would leave and lead normal life under normal circumstances. In most cases we found ourselves in situations that bring about challenges that test our human strength in as far as our individual UBUNTU is concern, which in some cases happen random and demand that we have to attend to them in no time than they happen, i.e. they are in a CAN NO LONGER WAIT mode. In this way our attention is drawn to the situation in such a manner that we feel obliged to give a helping hand to save the situation. In this way Umso construction management and its CSI department with the support of all has not been an exception, hence we can proudly say that we have done our part so satisfactory and become champions of the situation in our own right.
The demand to help is big and beyond one person’s imagination. As an administrator you develop a criteria that you want it to help you to decide as to who to help or who is in need most. Believe me that this sometimes have its rules waved in favour of an unprecedented situation that confronts you, and make you unable to ignore it, otherwise you end up with a sleepless night. This remains a challenge to us all we the business community, and ordinary citizen out there, as to how to help the demanding situation in a sustainable manner. The challenge we are all faced with, is the lack of resources and confronted by constraints.
The old saying that: IF WISHES WERE HORSES ALL BEGGERS WOULD RIDE.” in our situation it becomes a reality.
I want to conclude by saying that we will steadfastly do what we had to do and stretch ourselves as we can get.
