Pinetown based company SBS has launched a CSI initiative that highlights how South Africans are doing good and uplifting themselves and communities.
SBS is a Proudly South African company that operates on a shared value set of principles, underpinned by a business culture which guides its day to day operations. It is this ingrained culture that has led to the launch of The Build For Better Initiative – a collection of stories of real hope from across South Africa targeting nation building and community upliftment.
Says CEO Delayne Gray, “There is an endless narrative of bad news in our country and we need to change this. Everyone needs a dose of good news, of hope, something to believe in, and it is up to business and the people of South Africa to make this happen. Together we can build a better future for all involved.”
Gray notes that building for better does not necessarily require earth shattering changes in what we all do. It is about believing that we can all do more with what we have. It’s about small changes that move the narrative in the right direction. The collection of stories that The Build For Better Initiative highlights do just that – these are stories of hope and success.
By sharing these stories, SBS aims to help guide the conversation in a new direction; to inspire individuals and communities to be part of the movement towards positive change.
Stories of Hope
Build for Better is sharing stories of ordinary South Africans that have overcome what seemed like insurmountable challenges, or took advantage of opportunities to better themselves, while effecting positive change in their communities, organisations and for individuals.
Join the movement for change
“We hope these stories bring hope, and inspire you to live your own Build For Better story. With our Build For Better initiative partnerships and activities, we aim to foster real change amongst our communities, our country and ultimately the continent,” concludes Gray.
