Driving sustainable development with our SED Initiative: Impact House, Edenvale

Avis Fleet’s HR Team visited Impact House in Edenvale. Impact House is a registered children’s home which cares for children who have been placed in their care by court order through the welfare system. The house has 11 kids of different ages, race and gender. The children are looked after by a house mother who takes care of their needs including taking them to school.

Impact House’s wish list included a washing machine and we identified this as an area where we could help the home and contribute towards their sustainable development. We were happy to provide the washing machine for them, and we also organised a lunch and gift packs for each child.

Nolubabalo Lukhele, Human Resource Administrator at Avis Fleet, and SED Champion for the HR Department believes being involved in the SED Initiative is truly beneficial because it encourages companies to contribute to communities in need.  Nolubabalo says the act of helping others creates an improved sense of wellbeing for those involved in the upliftment of people.

Nolubabalo says the initiative was a success: “We gave them a washing machine and they also had their lunch. And they were so happy. We created magical moments with them as Avis Fleet. And they had fun.”
