As part of its Socio-Economic Development Programme, PBSA assists one of Mpumalanga’s NPO institutions prepare SA’s children for the future workforce.

“Our children are the rock on which our future will be built, our greatest asset as a nation. They will be the leaders of our country, the creators of our national wealth who care for and protect our people.” – Nelson Mandela, June 1995.

As a company committed to ensuring the economic longevity of our business, to the benefit of our employees, our clients and our home country, South Africa, at large, PBSA believes it needs to proactively foster the development of the future workforce.

As such, our company is proud to be able to contribute to the success of Dalimfundo Day Care & Preschool, which honoured 2019’s young graduates on 23 November.

Situated in Botleng, a rural township outside Delmas in Mpumalanga, Dalimfundo is a non-profit organisation (NPO) that was founded by local leaders, with the aim of providing a future for the children in their community.

Dalimfundo not only fulfils the crucial role of providing quality education and training to the children of South Africa, it is ultimately responsible for helping lay the foundations of the country’s future.

As an NPO, the institution is wholly reliant on donations to carry out its good work. In a bid to do our part, PBSA contributes to the institution on a monthly basis, with donations going towards the school’s daily nutritional programme that ensures its learners have a healthy meal each school day.

It is a privilege for PBSA to be a small part of our children’s education, and we salute the founders and staff of Dalimfundo Day Care & Preschool for their ongoing commitment to our nation’s greatest asset – its children.

 

To renovate, or not to renovate – is that even a question?

pbartisan renovations picRenovations aren’t easy, yet so many people insist on going through the process…There are good reasons why.

Like moving house, renovating a home is not easy – in fact it can be downright disruptive and stressful. So why do so many people put themselves through it? And why is the trend of home renovation growing in popularity, among young and old alike? The answer is simple: the benefits by far outweigh any inconvenience homemakers need to temporarily endure.

Pam Golding Properties manager Jonathan Davies says there is a strong argument for investing in alterations to a home. “These are likely to add value to what is the largest investment you are ever likely to make. With careful planning, developing a well-situated property over time can make sound financial sense, as it optimises the investment, resulting in improved property prices. There is also much one can do to improve one’s property that does not require a massive outlay in financial resources,” says Davies.

Besides the obvious benefit of adding monetary value to a home, there are a number of other reasons that make renovations such a popular option. South Africans in particular, are keen renovators. They will jump at any given opportunity to extend, redesign, redecorate or just relatively improve their living space.

And it’s no wonder, given the outdoor and sunshine bonanza we enjoy as a country, the world is really our oyster when it comes to making our homes beautiful. On top of that, a house is most likely the single biggest investment you will ever make, and any improvements you make on your biggest investment, equal both further future investment and immediate benefit.

Some of the immediate and short-term benefits include an enhancement of comfort and enjoyment for you and your family, experiencing a fresh new environment (they say change is as good as a holiday), pride in your place of abode when friends and family visit, and the satisfaction of knowing your home is your home, in every way – one that you envisioned, planned and created yourself. Renovations give you the opportunity to literally make your dreams come true.

Of course, it does not stop there. There are also the longer-term, financial rewards that come with renovating your home. If your property is an investment property that you are renting or want to rent out, you will be able to get far better returns.

If, on the other hand, you are there to stay, not only do renovations mean you can avoid the lengthy and stressful process of house hunting, making an offer to purchase, getting finance and, finally, uprooting to a new home, but they mean absolute peace of mind in the home you have, and plan to keep.
