Outreach & Committees

"Be first, that you may be of service" underpins our Outreach and Commitees Projects.

We try to address some of the needs of our community in the following ways:

Electronic waste collection

How often have you thought that you can't keep up with how quickly technology is advancing. Unfortunately the planet feels the same way - it cannot keep up with the huge amount of waste that is generated as technology forges ahead.

The electronic waste that each person generates is considerable and often the thought of how to dispose of it is a daunting one. E-waste is banned from landfills as it contains hazardous materials that leach into the ground water when exposed to the elements. Consumption of this water, even after filtration can cause health problems. Often electronic recyclers will only collect if there is a large load.

That is why the environmental committee has decided to have an electronic waste (e-waste) collection a few times a year, giving you the opportunity to dispose of your e-waste in a responsible manner.


Outreach Committee


We follow a policy in which we reach out to the needy whether they be children, elderly or destitute adults or animals. We believe in giving of our time as well as in kind where needed.

Johannesburg City Council

Johannesburg City Council:

This programme promotes civic awareness, fosters leadership, a distinct sense of community and promotes the values of tolerance and respect. The “failures” of initiatives are considered in detail from many perspectives and are only relinquished once they can be sincerely reframed as successful learning experiences.

This is a dynamic, far-sighted organisation and has been operating for almost 60 years. The community is encouraged to support our representatives and actively support their sincere desire to live out their slogan of being MAD or “making a difference.”
