Social Responsibility Initiatives

As we strive to provide our members with excellent service delivery, so too do we encourage our members to provide excellent service delivery in their communities.

IMATU is not only concerned with achieving social transformation through the creation of a sustainable Local Government, we also want to give back to our members, their families and their communities.

Each of our 8 Regional Offices coordinate and run their own individual community projects, charity drives and awareness campaigns specifically situated within their geographical scope. IMATU does also host a collective annual charity drive which is attended by our leadership team, members, service providers and social partners. All proceeds raised are equally divided and donated to the Kaalfontein Primary School and a charity of our President’s choosing.

IMATU-Discovery/LA Health Bursary Scheme

IMATU, in association with the LA Health Medical Scheme and Discovery Health, has established a Bursary Scheme as part of our on-going commitment to the wellbeing of our members and their families.

The aim of the Bursary Scheme is to provide financial assistance to IMATU members, and the children of IMATU members, in order to facilitate the pursuance and obtaining of a tertiary qualification.

The amount of each bursary granted will be R 5000 and a maximum of 100 bursaries will be granted annually. Applications for the IMATU-Discovery/LA Health Bursary Scheme open in January each year.

Annual Charity Drive

As we strive to provide our members with excellent service delivery, so too do we encourage our members to provide excellent service delivery in their communities.

IMATU is not only concerned with achieving social transformation through the creation of a sustainable Local Government, we also want to give back to our members, their families and their communities.

Each of our 8 Regional Offices coordinate and run their own individual community projects, charity drives and awareness campaigns specifically situated within their geographical scope. IMATU does also host a collective annual charity drive which is attended by our leadership team, members, service providers and social partners. All proceeds raised are equally divided and donated to the Kaalfontein Primary School and the Jabulani Nursery and Pre-Primary School in KwaZulu Natal. This pre-primary and nursery school currently educates and caters for children, from a predominantly poor and underemployed area. Donations from our previous golf days have assisted in the extension of a safe, interactive play area at the pre-school, electrical improvements and the construction of new children’s ablution block.

The other half of funds raised is donated to the Kaalfontein Primary School in Midrand, via the Adopt-a-School Foundation. Kaalfontein Primary School has been in operation for over 11 years and is the only primary school in the Kaalfontein and surrounding areas. All the learners in attendance are from economically challenged circumstances and 15% of learners are orphans or from child headed households.

Thus far the money raised has assisted the school in providing eye sight testing for all 1538 learners and providing the visually impaired pupils with spectacles. With your help, last year, we were able to install a compost area, erected a rainwater harvesting structure and extended the school’s existing vegetable garden – an exercise that has greatly enhanced their feeding scheme.
