AdvanceKhaya is a social upliftment programme designed to improve the quality of life of all unskilled and semi-skilled staff employed by the Company. While our minimum wage employees are remunerated at over twice that of the minimum determined by the Department of Labour, it is our experience that very little disposable income typically remains for individuals employed in entry level positions after the costs of transportation have been provided for.

It is for this reason that we have introduced a housing allowance for all employees who earn less than a certain amount each month, a benefit intended to ensure that we are doing our utmost to provide our staff with a reasonable quality of life. While delighted by the fact that this initiative provides our employees with the means to better house, feed, educate and clothe themselves and their families, we are also proud of our contribution to the alleviation of poverty in South Africa by means of this initiative.
