Mindpearl and Siljeur Leadership Development Trust making an impact in South Africa

Mindpearl recently partnered with the Siljeur Leadership Development Trust (SLDT) to support “Give a Warm Blanket Campaign” in celebration of Women’s Day. Due to the amazing generosity of the staff, Mindpearl were able to hand over all the wonderful donations received to the Ilitha Labantu management team, an organisation who provides a range of services to assist abused women and children who are victims of domestic violence. The donations received will aid in making a positive impact in the lives of those less fortunate.

Operations Director Sebastian Siljeur commented, “SLDT wish to extend our sincere gratitude to Mindpearl for promoting this initiative and all staff who contributed to making this social development project a success, I hope that SLDT and Mindpearl will be able to collaborate on future social projects together.”
