COMMUNITY UPLIFTMENT & IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS

 

Embedded in the DNA of the HBCCA is the proven commitment

 to make lasting, positive impacts on the community

of Imizamo Yethu through projects at the Iziko Lobomi Centre

 as well as in the community, touching all spheres of people's lives.

 

The following projects are currently on our list.

You are invited to partner with us and help

make these projects a reality:

CARETAKER'S RESIDENCE

EXPANSION OF CARETAKER'S RESIDENCE

Our Caretaker-family:

Nicholas and his wife Zandile, with their son, Asikhunge.

 

The Caretaker and his family cleaning the hall on a Sunday evening after a busy day of meetings and services.

 

The existing container which serves as residence for the family.

(bedroom with one double bed, kitchen and dining area)

 

The anticipated extension - a converted container that will be placed on top of the existing container.

 

We all knew that the day would come when we had to increase the size of the Caretaker's residence (container). The current space of 15.6 square meters is just not sufficient anymore to accommodate a family of three people. Also, this family deserves a bigger place. Their dedication to the HBCCA and Iziko Lobomi in the past eight years have been exemplary.

Fortunately for us, this expansion will actually be quite an easy project. All that will be needed is to acquire a converted container and place it on top of the existing one. Then, install a staircase inside, waterproof the two structures, connect up the electricity and plumbing and, project is completed.

From date of order this could all be done within two month's time.

For the HBCCA the challenge is to finance the project which is estimated to cost approximately R175,000.

PROTECTION FOR OUR PATROLLERS

Estimated Project Cost: 5 X R4,500 = R22,500

 

 

 

 

Keeping law and order in any community can be dangerous and is a big responsibility. It takes

 extraordinary dedication, commitment and sacrifice from the authorities and people involved.

Imizamo Yethu had its fair share of criminal activities in the past which resulted in the formation

 of a Neighbourhood Watch known as the 'Imizamo Yethu Patrollers'. This dedicated group comprise of

 approximately 65 men who go out in teams every night doing their patrols from 10am to 4am

in the morning - 7 days a week. These men are all volunteers and provide this service

unselfishly with very little compensation.

An increasing amount of residents are carrying firearms these days and several people

have been killed in shooting incidents this year - mostly related with feuds between taxi

operators.

Patrolling volatile areas in the township has become increasingly dangerous for our patrollers

who do not have any protection when addressing situations where firearms are involved.

The HBCCA would like to make an appeal to our supporters for funds to fund the purchase of five (5)

bullet proof vests which could be used by members patrolling in dangerous areas.

At the same time we would also like to donate five good quality, rechargeable

security torches (flashlights) which is currently also needed by the men.

IZIKO LOBOMI SOLAR ENERGY

INSTALLATION

Estimated Project Cost: R252,000

 

 

BREAKING NEWS

We have received our first donation, value R30,000, towards this project at the end of February!

We have also asked the supplier for a Phase 1 quotation which will cost less but which we

will be able to grow/expand into a system large enough to take care of almost all our

future electricity needs.

 

PHASE 1

This phase will cost R133,000 which means we only need a bit more

than R100,000 to make this project a reality.

How about joining this sponsor with a contribution of your own?

Many hands make 'light' work  ;-)

 

*******************************

 

Electricity is one of the most important components in the running of Iziko Lobomi but it

is also one of our biggest monthly expenses. With the cost of solar-generated power

steadily coming down every year, installations are becoming more and more affordable for

smaller business and consumers.

Several solar energy suppliers have been approached for advice and quotations

for an installation that will be suitable and affordable for Iziko Lobomi.

The general opinion of these suppliers is that an effective installation can easily generate

at least 50-60% of the Centre's daily consumption. With an average electricity bill of

R 6,000 per month that will give us an estimated saving of R R36,000 per year

enabling the installation to pay for itself in less than 7 year's time. The systems currently available

carry a 25 year guarantee.

The prospect of halving our monthly electricity bill and at the same time reducing

the use of electricity generated by environmentally harmful means (coal fired power stations)

is an exciting one for us - it just feels right!

The installation we are considering is manufactured by CanadianSolar and will comprise of

42 solar panels  which gives us an estimated cost of R6,000 per panel.

This makes it possible for us to break this

project up and make it attractive enough for even individual persons to make a contribution.
