“We never know the worth of water until the well is dry.” Thomas Fuller (African slave and mathematician 1710-1790)

Nine months ago TEBA facilitated a two-year socio-economic project in Mashikeng, funded by the Chamber of Mines, NUM and the Department of Health, involving the creation of sustainable food gardens.

Lonmin management visited the Eastern Cape to meet Mr Mlonyeni, one of their former long-serving employees. Mr Mlonyeni was severely injured at work and can now only walk with the aid of crutches. Lonmin built him a house, complete with running water and electricity.

TEBA has successfully embarked on sustainable agricultural projects in Mozambique’s Gaza province, with financial support from Gold One.

TEBA has partnered with Lendcor to provide access to housing finance for our customer and communities. Lendcor loans are only paid out as building materials through a hardware store selected by the customer. Customers can realise or improve their housing over a period of time without the trap of getting large debt associated with a traditional home loan.
