Initiatives that we are proud to be part of…
CELL C – TAKE A GIRL CHILD TO WORK DAY
XL Millennium is passionate about the Cell C, Take a Girl Child to Work programme – we have supported this initiative since 2015.
This year, we invited 6 scholars from our local high school, JG Meiring, to experience the workplace environment. The team shared their knowledge, processes of various tasks, and let the young ladies see firsthand, how the day to day running of the company is handled.
We exposed them to a all-women-run workplace, which for us, is very important, especially as it’s directly aligned with Cell C’s main focus, which is preparing the young women of today, to be the future leaders of our country. This initiative resonates with the company’s mission of empowering women.
In the last week of every school term, XL Millennium staff visit the West Riding School in Tableview to feed the less fortunate children that attend the school.
XL Millennium provide the financial assistance to buy the ingredients and our staff members prepare the meals. Headed by senior management, this project is co-ordinated by the XL Millennium interns as a training exercise. Both staff and interns physically set up the dining tables and chairs in the school hall for the children’s lunch. Meals are typically nutritional and served warm. One day of the week is hotdog day, which the children relish! The children are also served fruit.
It is a very emotional, but rewarding initiative and all the staff look forward to these feeding scheme weeks.
EMPOWER WITH DIGNITY
XL Millennium, alongside its clients and suppliers, collaborate and collect sanitary pads for the young girls in the disadvantaged schools in Cape Town during Women’s Month. We seek to help the students, who not only need their basic needs met, but give them the opportunity to complete their schooling with dignity and grace. The staff contribute to this initiative and the company matches their contribution.
In August 2018 we delivered our collection of sanitary pads packs to Inkwenkwezi High School in Dunoon, Cape Town.
