TCM, an infrastructure and service provider, participated in the provision of 34 houses in the Stretford, Orange Farm. TCM in conjunction with ABSA and 20 of their other suppliers managed to fund raise R3 million. The build took place from 20th October to 24th October 2008 with all sponsoring companies providing their employees who volunteered to assist with various building activities.

This project which TCM participates in annually is run by Habitat For Humanity, an organization which works with poverty stricken communities and corporates to directly address the housing shortage in South Africa. Habitat For Humanity has a number of requirements in selecting beneficiaries; one being that every beneficiary must have previously assisted in the build of a house for a member of their community. This ensures the longevity of all the projects Habitat For Humanity initiates.

Habitat For Humanity also states that all sponsors must provide 10-15 volunteers from within their companies for each day of the build. TCM, a service-centric company had 30 volunteers who were present at the building site throughout the week of the build.

With increasing focus on Social Responsibility, TCM employees and prospective employees are able to gain insight into TCM’s commitment and confidence in the future of South Africa and its citizens. Volunteers are also given an explicit view on the difference an individual and an organization can make. TCM’s contribution in providing a safe place for families who did not have running water and electricity displays the company’s commitment to bettering the lives of all South African citizens.
