At Nox we pride ourselves on working in line with our company Core Values. These guide the way we operate, communicate and ultimately make decisions. Our core value We Give Back has a special place in our hearts and has driven us to be more involved in our community as a company and as individuals.
We’ve made a decision to partner with two special causes during 2020. We will support these causes financially (by allocating a portion of our annual profit), as well as with time and skills.
For 2020 we decided, as a team, to support Disa Primary School in Hout Bay and Food & Trees for Africa.
Disa Primary was founded by a close friend of the company, and fulfills an invaluable service to the Imizamo Yethu community in Hout Bay. The school’s central aim is to instill a belief in their learners and a quest for significance. They do this by providing a fantastically resourced school, with caring staff, and by taking care of the needs of the learners beyond what an ordinary school does (for example proving meals, uniforms and medical check-ups).
Nox chose to support Disa Primary, not only due to the personal relationship with the founders, but because we are firm believers that a focus on education is key to breaking the cycle of poverty.
FTFA addresses food security, environmental sustainability, and greening by planting trees and community gardens in impoverished areas throughout South Africa.
Nox chose to support FTFA as we felts it contributes in so many different ways; building skills, food security for vulnerable people, carbon sequestration, environmental training and more.
Our goal for 2020 is to raise and donate R400,000 to these two causes, and to do three events where we contribute our time and energy to their causes.
