The investment of the Waitrose Foundation in a computer software programme namely CAMI (Computer Aided Mathematics Instruction) is still yielding good fruit in the Creches...
When the first CAMI (Computer Aided Maths Instruction) training started at De Vlei farm, one of the facilitators interrupted the lesson and asked anxiously: “Please go slow, I’ve never worked on a computer before.”
The month of August also know as Women’s Month in South Africa, created an acute awareness for some of the core functions of women.
The Waitrose Foundation demonstrates its belief in the value/potential of partnerships by working closely with its member farms to design and implement social development projects...
The worker committee of Morester Farm in Piketberg, Western Cape has always been aware of the potential that is un- or under-developed amongst their youth.
The impact of the Waitrose Foundation’s annual conference theme, namely ‘Community Wellbeing – Beyond Physical Health’ is still evident on member farms.
Monteith Farm in Grabouw, Western Cape explored ‘new territory’ (for them), when they involved drama therapists in a team building exercise for all their permanent staff members.
This annual event is a highlight on the Foundation’s calendar and still proves to be an effective contribution to building the capacity of worker representatives through motivation, knowledge and skills transfer as well as building relevant networks.
