Empowerment

Programme Management

ET Consult has implemented a series of empowerment programmes on behalf of clients. In keeping with our positive impact vision, we have also implemented several programmes of our own. All our programmes are built on sustainable inclusivity, transformation and empowerment – we’ve termed this the Multiplier Impact.

How we offer free B-BBEE Consulting to Empowerment Programme Management Clients

We handle your BEE spend, develop transformation strategies and implement programmes on your behalf thereby reducing the costs and valuable resources you would need internally if you implemented empowerment programmes.

  • Over and above compliance and active participation in the transformation of South Africa, this programme garnered positive PR for Mylan.
Deliverables
  • School bags for children in the North West

Enterprise And Supplier Development Programme.

Mylan – a multinational entity that promotes safe, sustainable operations across the globe found our proclivity towards empowerment and positive impact in South Africa, ideal. As part of their Enterprise and Development scorecard, we developed and implemented an empowerment programme on behalf of Mylan, that induced compliance for Mylan and multiplier impact for South Africa.

School bags for children in the North West.

In order for the programme to be SD claimable, it required an 85% minimum of previously disadvantaged beneficiaries. Typically, we look at schools that need and meet the demographics requirement; however, this time Mylan had  recommended a school in the North West. To provide the school with schools we discovered African Uncle, a small business that manufactured school bags with an African flair. African Uncle was selected for its growth, despite limited resources and a commitment to a strong African brand.  

Our multiplier impact programme started with ESD compliance for Mylan, it then led to the development and job creation for African Uncle and took the same message of sustainability and empowerment through to the leaders of the future – children. Over and above compliance and active participation in the transformation of South Africa, this programme garnered positive PR for Mylan.

Deliverables
  • EOS Programme

Enterprise Development Programme through EOS – Entrepreneurial Operating System

As part of their Enterprise Development compliance obligation, Mylan has sponsored the EOS journey for 1st Verification Networx. EOS is a global business operating system that helps businesses gain traction and maintain sustainable growth. The system has helped thousands of entrepreneurs get what they want from their businesses by instilling focus, discipline and accountability throughout the business. Through the EOS 1st Verification Networx has gone from almost closing down in December 2018 to recruiting more staff!

*The implementation of EOS for the benefit of ESD scorecard compliance is available exclusively through ET Consult and can be adopted to help businesses gain traction or exercised through an organisations’ ED compliance obligation, as seen by Mylan. *

  • Partnering with ET Consult has been a no brainier for Averge Technologies.
Deliverables
  • Socio-Economic Development.

Socio-Economic Development Programme.

As an organisation that prides itself on innovative solutions to customer needs, in an ethical and responsible manner partnering with ET Consult has been a no brainier for Averge Technologies. In fact, Averge Technologies it one of our long-standing clients; for them, mere tick box compliance exercises do not suffice, and no one understands transformational compliance quiet like we do! We implemented a social housing programme – House Mitshali, as part of Averge Technology’s Socio-Economic Development obligation

House Mitshali was one of the projects undertaken by Ubuntu Design Group – a programme that is committed to solving architectural design and financial inclusion problem of low-income communities around the world. At the helm of Ubuntu Design Group is Wandile Mthiyane, a young entrepreneur whose own experiences of constant displacement during his childhood led to the creation of Ubuntu Design Group. By partnering with Ubuntu Design Group, we were able to help Wandile and team complete their pilot programme which provided a home for the Mitshali’s and a small creche. The Mitshali’s are disabled, so the creche creates an income for them and a safe place for children while their parents are at work. From a SED compliance obligation to life’s purpose, job creation, sustainable income and safety for children – aptly displaying our multiplier impact model.

  • This was a fitting initiative for our multiplier impact that demonstrated our commitment to empowerment and transformation.

  • ChemStart learners get real-life interaction with science kits and experiments which makes science fun and dreams to be a scientist achievable!

Social Programme.

ET Consult in partnership with ChemStart sponsored an entire school in Nongoma with science kits. ChemStart is a portable science kit that makes science fun and provides hands-on interaction with science concepts and application in real life. 

Bathabile Mpofu heads up Chemstart, she has real-life experience of what it feels like to be disempowered and without proper exposure to science labs and experiments. Bathabile once aspired to be a scientist but lost her confidence due to the disempowerment faced in high school. Since then she has made it her life’s purpose to ensure that others do not experience the same setback. Through ChemStart learners get real-life interaction with science kits and experiments which makes science fun and dreams to be a scientist achievable!

This was a fitting initiative for our multiplier impact that demonstrated our commitment to empowerment and transformation because “our children are our only hope for the future, but we are their only hope for their present and their future” Zig Ziglar.
