Have you experienced one of those defining moments when your chest swells with pride and you want to explode with excitement over South Africa?

South Africa - the biggest melting pot of cultures, traditions and beliefs – offers far more than people often anticipate. The long stretches of shore line pull away from roaring oceans into vast landscapes of green beauty, rolling hills and concrete jungles. There's just something about South Africa that continues to take your breath away, no matter how many times you visit the same places. There is always something new, and somewhere new, to explore under South African skies.

ceodeskAl-Imdaad foundation stretches out its hand in dire situations

South Africans have always been known for their Ubuntu and giving nature. Some go the extra mile to help the less fortunate, and have managed to make a positive difference in the lives of others. One organisation which can attest to this is the Al-Imdaad Foundation.


The Foundation has grown into a formidable force and has packaged itself in a way that it can cater for sudden events, distributing food parcels and providing first aid to orphans, the disabled and those affected by natural disasters.

Rama Spread for bread


longspan

Many South Africans have grown up with Rama – indeed it’s a household name for millions of consumers. Rama first launched in South Africa some 40 years ago (in 1972) and its name has since been passed from generation to generation.

Today, it’s known to be the most preferred spread for bread among South Africans. As a two-in-one product, it can also be used for cooking.readmore]

Salon treatments are a sure treat for both women and men. But beyond the manicures, pedicures, waxes and massages lies a deeper issue.

The company is an official member of the Proudly South African campaign and has created jobs for 28 people.

Quality Education News

education
A quality school and a quality school governing body go together. When the school is good, there's likely to be a good governing body guiding and supporting it. Last year Proudly South African (PSA) and the CGF Research Institute inaugurated a competition to salute such schools.

South African schools whether private or public, are warmly invited to enter the 2012 competition. The winning school will receive the PSA – CGF Research Institute trophy and runners-up will be awarded certificates.

HOT POTATO


It’s a topic that’s becoming a hot potato – and it literally involves hot potatoes. Potatoes South Africa (PSA) represents the local potato industry and has issued a strong warning, following an over-supply of potatoes in Europe.

The Body has explained that French-fries are selling at below average prices around the world as a result of the over-supply. Neither local consumers nor local farmers are reaping fruit from this. In South Africa, according to PSA, the volume of French-fry imports rose from 15000t in 2009 to almost 47000t in 2010 before falling back to 30000t last year — still double the 2009 level.

CHILD PROTECTION WEEK 28 MAY – 3 JUNE

As South Africans, we have all heard of the proverb, “it takes a village to raise a child”. This emphasises the role of the wider community, and also the country, in keeping children safe and putting the best interest of children first.

As South Africans, it is each citizen’s obligation to care for and look out for our children. It’s about living out the principles which have been at the core of our existence for years. It’s about Ubuntu.
It is devastating to read, hear and see news reports daily, which depict true stories of horror involving children.   

Child Protection Week has been held annually since 1998, under the leadership of the Department of Social Development. The aim of the campaign is to educate and mobilise communities to put children first. This year, Child Protection Week runs from 28 May to 3 June. readmore]

'HEADS-UP' FOR DIRECTORS IN THE CLOUD

logoThere‟s much that can be said about the manner in which members of a board are "wired‟, and it does not take much to recognise those directors who embrace technology and those who don‟t. Interestingly, as technology races well ahead of the predictions stated by Moore‟s Law in 1965 -- where the number of transistors would double on an integrated circuit every 18 months -- some have embraced this change, whilst many of the old school have "run away‟ from it in fear. Considering its pace, technological change is a huge adrenaline rush especially for the techno-savvy youngsters, but for the majority of those people who are "technologically challenged‟ and their comfort zones threatened, they will become increasingly scared and may even flee their positions as their confidence levels in this area steadily declinereadmore]
