Lead SA shines the spotlight on Western Cape Heroes with Stratum Cares

Written by: Lilford Lesabe

LeadSA, a Primedia Broadcasting initiative that inspires, supports and enables active citizenry, believes that all people, in some way, have the power and the desire to make a positive contribution.

Over the last 8 years, South Africans have been nominating a person they believe epitomises the qualities of a good leader in their community. A person who has taken the initiative to make a positive difference. This past year, two heroes where profiled monthly on LeadSA.co.za as well as interviewed on sister radio stations Cape Talk 567AM and Kfm 94.5

The LeadSA Heroes initiative, supported by Stratum Cares - the CSI arm of Stratum Benefits, celebrated the monthly heroes at a brunch awards ceremony in Cape Town on Saturday, 8 September 2018.

Congratulations to the Transkei Outreach Project who were named the Lead SA Western Cape Hero of the Year 2018.

All the 2018 nominees were impressive and true change makers within their communities. And served as an inspiration to us all

Transkei outreach Project received R40, 000.00 from the Stratum Cares programme to donate towards their holiday educational Program.

There is a natural alignment between Lead SA’s focus on making the world a better place and the Stratum Cares programme. We are proud to have supported Lead SA to identify local heroes and look forward to backing Transkei Outreach Project as they continue to make a difference

Michelle Ferreira, Stratum Cares
