Container World has begun a process of adopting the concept of shared value creation as the way in which our business operates

Shared Value

“Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places you can. At all the times you can. To all the people you can. As long as ever you can.” John Wesley

Over the previous nine posts, we’ve shared the transformation journey of Project Joy and Entokozweni Pre-School, in the Inanda Valley. It has been a journey of growth, collaboration, and hard work. A journey with a specific destination in mind: a place where the children of KwaNqetho, will receive quality early education, during the most important developmental years of their life.

Project Joy

The small creche that operated in an old church hall is now a brightly coloured, beautiful bird, ready to take the children under its wings on their own journey of transformation. 

Principal, Bonisiwe Gwala, who always had the passion, now also has the skills and resources to pilot this journey, and the ambition to make her school a “five-star school”. When people hear the name Entokozweni, Bonisiwe wants them to know that it is the place where quality education lives. It’s in schools like this, which are run properly, efficiently, with passion and love, that future leaders are developed. And educated, compassionate leaders, are exactly what this community, and country, needs.On August 1st, a community of people brought together by a vision for meaningful change, gathered together under a threatening sky, to celebrate the completion of Project Joy. From community leaders to children, and the many who invested time, expertise, finances, equipment, mentorship and prayers, it was a time to give thanks, and acknowledge the power in collaborative efforts.In the words of Inkosi Bhengu, “We exist together, even though we come from different places. It is our duty to work together and make today better than yesterday.”
