The Renico Group takes its responsibility as a corporate citizen seriously, endeavouring to ensure that all its activities have a positive impact on the communities in which it works and from which many of its employees are drawn. It aims to be a facilitator of social development and encourages meaningful and sustainable interventions, always in partnership with local communities and often in partnership with other donors. This partnership encourages support from governmental agencies, NGO’s and Community Based Organisations, making a positive contribution to poverty alleviation, community development and enabling government to facilitate improved service delivery and local economic development. It places specific emphasis on black youth, HIV/Aids, senior citizens and people living with disabilities.
To this end, Renico makes the following contributions:
The company also undertook the construction of the Gateway Primary School Hall. The newly completed school hall was officially opened on 6 June 2012. Nico and Renske Louw of Renico Construction, along with many of their loyal contractors and suppliers, attended the memorable function and it was with great pride and sincere gratitude that Mrs Kempen and her Management team officially proclaimed the Renico School Hall open.
Renico recently completed the Gateway Home for the Elderly at a heavily discounted rate, again motivating many of their loyal suppliers and sub-contractors to donate, or discount considerably, the materials and labour required on the project, as they did with the construction of the Hall.
The Gateway School is a leading school for learners with special educational needs, and many of these learners continue to receive assistance from the Gateway Society for their entire lives.
In July 2015, in association with Trinityhouse School, Renico constructed shelters within the assembly area utilised by the pupils and staff of the Matla Combined School in Kromdraai, greatly alleviating the problems the school faced in assembling the school pupils together during inclement weather and in the extreme heat of the summer months.
