Organised Business realized that they can no longer remain on the outside looking in on a community going to ruin due to rot setting in with strategic municipal assets not being maintained over decades.
This is when the Golden Triangle Chamber of Commerce (GTCoC) stepped in and decided to do something – Enter Emfuleni for Change!
A meeting with Thought Leaders and Champions of Industry was convened on 2 August 2019, at the illustrious Emerald Resort & Casino, and EfC was conceived.
An initial EfC Management Team was put together with Specialists and a Project Definition Workshop on 16 August served to craft the basis for the EfC Start-up Project Plan, which was signed after no less than 15 draft revisions, in November 2019.
Mergers & Acquisitions
We are proud to announce that the following organizations have now become part of the EfC Enterprise:
Helplift Network – Vaal Triangle Hub
The Helplift Network NPC was established for the purpose of consolidating and coordinating Welfare and Social Work throughout South Africa. A noble enterprise, founded in 2008, with great appreciation, by Mr. Peter Malan, as a Non Profit Organization serving the Indigent. A number of ‘Hubs’ sprouted from this initiative, the Vaal Triangle Hub (Vaal Hub), being among the first, serving the entire community in the Emfuleni and Midvaal regions by functioning under the umbrella of the Helplift Network NPC as an inter-denominational entity.
However, the Helplift Network NPC Board of Directors resolved in early 2020 to delist the NPC, which left the Vaal Hub without legal status, with two options:
- Constitute a new legal entity through CIPC, or
- Look for an existing, viable candidate organization to integrate, rather than re-inventing the CIPC wheel.
And since the Vaal Hub and EfC already established a solid and mutually beneficial relationship as far back as November 2019 already, with EfCs organizational structure already making provision for Social Development, this merger was a no-brainer.
We are proud to announce that the Statutory Merger has been concluded and the following people now form part of the EfC Welfare & Education Department, effective 01 January 2021:
- Lenette Kruger – Head of Department
- Annemarie Zoellner – Manager: Charity Store
- Tersia Kellermann – Graphic Design & Social Media Marketing
- Soné Botes – Counsellor (Pastoral & Trauma) & Management Accounting
- Brigitte Lombard – Counsellor
