Giving Back to Others is one of the Greatest Gifts!
At Imperial Armour we believe in giving back and encourage community involvement, we have learn’t that even the most simple acts are actually incredibly important, providing us with valuable experience and insight and hopefully make the world a better place. We are always the ones who are left feeling humbled and grateful, so really, the greatest gift is ours.
Projects that we have been involved in include:
One Girl’s Wish comes true – R10 000 Bursary for Tertiary Education
Nothando Pearl Shezi is an exceptionally gifted young lady, to stop her from fulfilling her dream of obtaining a higher education would have been a tragedy. Imperial Armour identified the potential in Nothando and seized the opportunity to change the course of her life by offering her a bursary of R10 000. Nothando has completed the first year of her Mechanical Engineering degree at the University of KwaZulu Natal, Howard College. Being a domestic worker, her mum is unable to support her financially, we hope that by taking full advantage of this opportunity, Nothando will be able to positively affect the lives of those around her.
School Bags for Kids – Durban Childrens Home
On Wednesday, 9 December 2015 we visited Durban Child and Youth Care Centre (Durban Children’s Home) armed with cupcakes and juice and hosted the best tea party with these special children. The Durban Child and Youth Care Centre is a Non- Profit Organisation that cares for 74 children in their Children’s Homes. A proper school bag is a necessity for any child’s education, so we made and sponsored school bags to get these children through the next schooling year. What a wonderful day sharing the true meaning behind Christmas – kindness, love and care.
Christmas Gifts – Natal Settlers Memorial Home
On Friday, 11 December 2015 we were invited to the ‘Natal Settlers Memorial Homes’ Christmas celebration. Natal Settlers is home to people from all walks of life, including: cerebral palsy children, the aged, frail, mentally challenged, physically challenged and in some instances the destitute. We had a wonderful time and sponsored 100 Shopping Bags, face cloths, make up bags & chocolates plus 4 x School Satchels to Cerebral Palsy children. It was a humbling experience that left us filled with gratitude and love, a lovely reminder about what is really important in life.
