Corporate social responsibility
MarbleTech gives back
We are proudly supporting three NPOs
MarbleTech is proud to be supporting three charity/non-profit organisations namely Operation Healing Hands, Learning in Reach and Milimani Educational Trust. Everyone at MarbleTech is inspired by these organisations and the work they do to make an impact on children’s lives in South Africa. We feel honoured to partner with these special organisations.
Operation Healing Hands (OHH) started in 2016. The number of doctors that give their ‘free’ time to conduct operations is amazing.
OHH performs various operations, from cataract removal and hip and knee replacements for the elderly, to the removal of tonsils & wisdom teeth for children.
Some MarbleTech staff members went to spend a day at the Centurion Day Hospital to see how OHH works and also in support of Mandela day. “It was pleasant spending the day with children, parents, friendly OHH staff and Centurion Day Hospital staff. We received a warm welcome and they all thanked MarbleTech for our contribution on the day”: said Petro Grobler, MarbleTech’s Marketing Manager.
OHH in partnership with Jacaranda 94.2fm radio station, are making a difference in people’s lives.

Learning In Reach (LIR) is a non-profit organisation based in Cape Town, providing an inclusive solution to the challenges faced by traditional Early Childhood Development, specifically targeting Lavender Hill in the Cape Flats. Learning In Reach focuses on growing the skills of teachers and parents to empower them to be better teachers, leaders and role-models for our children, our future generation and hope for a better country.
A solutions driven NPO, LIR supports and aims to provide the following: Infrastructure, Educational Resources, Facility registration, Entrepreneurial co-operative, Parent Outreach, Training of Teachers, Health and Nutrition and Trauma Counselling.
The Milimani Educational Trust was established in 2003. The primary function was to support three crèches in northern KwaZulu-Natal.
For most of the 14 years we have, in true fishes & 5 loaves style, focused on what we could afford and set the feeding scheme as our priority. Due to financial constraints or our learners the Trust remains focussed on providing food each term, stationery and training.
With other donations we have enrolled our teachers to be qualified as ECD teachers. Three teachers completed up to Level 5 and in 2018/9 we enabled another 4 teachers to do their Level 4 training.
