At Walthers we are passionate about Corporate Social Responsibility. Giving back to the often underprivileged communities that surround the hotels, lodges and attractions we visit is of immense importance to us. We are not necessarily talking about cash donations. Many of our clients have taken time to assist with a few hours of interaction with Africa’s friendly people. Painting a classroom, refurbishing a playground or enjoying a paid for meal in someone’s home are merely a few examples of how our clients, through contributing, have learnt about different cultures. In some cases the interaction has resulted in meaningful friendships that are the highlight of their stay.
Walthers policy is that no profit is made from any social responsibility element if included as part of a programme we arrange. Our aim is that 100% of any contribution gets to those who need it. Our partnership with KPMG Meijburg Holland has changed the lives of hundreds of school children in Lilydale close to The Kruger National Park. Over the past five years, 6 new classrooms, a 10 workstation computer room, clean water, hundreds of school text books, desks and much more has been provided to Ezweni school.
Walthers is proud to have been recognised by SITE, winning three coveted “Crystal Awards” for outstanding contributions to CSR as part of an Incentive programme.
