UCS Technology Services is committed to meeting our responsibilities in uplifting marginalised and disadvantaged individuals and communities in South Africa.
Our beneficiary organisations are near to the hearts of UCS Technology Services employees in our various offices across the country, and we will continue investing in poverty alleviation and skills development for children and youth, as well as focusing on improving the abilities of underprivileged adults to participate meaningfully in the South African economy. Our focus on actively contributing to the needs of communities across South Africa truly reflects our company values of accountability, mentorship, and honesty.
Our socio-economic development programme currently focuses on 2 major beneficiaries, Nokuphila School (The Love Trust) and Jabulani Khakibos Kids, both of which are situated in Gauteng. Nokuphila School is a project of The Love Trust, and provides a quality private education from underprivileged children from Tembisa township. Jabulani Khakibos Kids provides shelter for homeless children in Hillbrow, with the long term plan of integrating these children back into their communities.
Our other beneficiaries include service providers to individuals who are severely impacted by illness like Lambano Sanctuary, which provides a paediatric step-down facility and hospice serving the East Rand, Gauteng.
Little Lambs is a Western Cape organisation looking to alleviate the burden of poverty and illness affecting mothers and children through structured support projects like safe houses, and providing much-needed support as well as covering basic needs.
Turfhall Cheshire Home in Hanover Park, Western Cape provides residential care for 60 profoundly physically disabled individuals from disadvantaged communities.
The Good Hope Foundation in the Western Cape assists people of all ages who are affected by illness, poverty and abuse, and focuses on creating financial and social stability for them through skills training opportunities amongst other projects.
Umthombo Youth Development Foundation identifies, trains and supports young South Africans in obtaining a relevant medical qualification and gaining experience in rural hospitals. Operating mainly in Kwa-Zulu Natal’s understaffed medical sector, Umthombo is dedicated to addressing the dire skills shortage in the area.
UCS Technology Services is proud to make a small difference in the lives of many each year.
