    CTICC Community Partners each receive R 10 000 birthday gift

    The Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) celebrated its 10th birthday by giving R 10 000 to each of its four community partners, during its birthday celebrations last week, in order to advance the work that they do.


    The Ambalimi Harvest of Hope, Foundation for Alcohol Related Research (FARR), The Haven Night Shelter and the Mitchells Plain School of Skills were strategically chosen by the centre, as their causes are aligned to the CTICC’s core business. “In this way the centre can truly contribute to skills development and knowledge transfer with these partners and make a meaningful impact”, says CTICC Chief Executive Officer, Rashid Toefy.
    In addition to the above the CTICC will also be partnering with the Congress of the South African Trade Union (COSATU) to host two public events. These events, which will entail a Senior Citizens Day and a Student Career event, will form part of the centre’s 10th birthday legacy projects.

    “Since inception the centre has been committed to uplifting the communities in which it operates and making a tangible difference to skills development. As a responsible member of the Cape Town community, we feel it is our privilege to give back to the city that has helped us through ten years of success,” says Toefy.

    The centre recently achieved its Level 2 BBBEE certification as a result of its commitment to encouraging small business enterprise development. The CTICC sources the majority of its products and services from black and women - owned businesses. In just ten short years, the CTICC has succeeded in its mandate to sustain jobs, build businesses, enhance lives and, ultimately, empower people and communities. Over the last decade the centre has contributed more than R19 billion to South Africa’s national economy, and sustains over 8000 jobs per annum.

    “As a world leader in sustainability the CTICC is continually raising the benchmark in terms of encouraging other organisations to be self-sustaining and be conscious about effecting change”, concludes Toefy.
