SCHOOLS PROJECT

Schools Project – pledge a fundraising project of your choice in support of NID.

The NID Schools Project involves schools taking on a fundraising project of their choice in support of NID. Projects may vary from a social day, coin laying, hosting a dance or anything easy that could easily slot into the school’s annual programme.

Schools can also get involved in the NID Change for Change project. The project involves the filling of small Change 4 Change money boxes with all the small and annoying change, which fill our wallets.

This project is however not limited to school participation. Colleges, universities, service organisations or any type of group can also get involved and donate the funds collected from their project to NID as a special gift.

Mnr. Cobus van Deventer het op 8 Januarie by NID aangesluit as slegs die sesde Uitvoerende Direkteur in 136 jaar. Nadat hy sy honneursgraad in B ComRek verwerf het, was meneer Van Deventer betrokke by onder andere Shoprite Checkers, asook by die konstruksie en ontwikkeling van residensiële ontwikkelings. Hy was tot einde 2017 die eienaar van verskeie besighede. Mnr. Van Deventer het deur sy jare-lange betrokkenheid by nie-winsgewende diensorganisasies tot die besef gekom dat hy sy werksloopbaan wil afsluit deur op ‘n voltydse basis betrokke te raak aan die stuur van ‘n organisasie waar sy bestuursondervinding ‘n voordeel kan wees.

Hy het ‘n passie en visie vir NID wat hy baseer op ‘n onwrikbare waarde naamlik vertroue. Sy droom is dat NID werklik as nasionale organisasie in die volksmond en hart sal groei; dat NID se bedieningsveld sal vergroot wat getalle betref en dat die kwaliteit dienste wat aangebied word ook sal groei en verbeter tot die hoogste gehalte. Volgens hom is almal wat by NID betrokke is een groot familie met sterk bande wat mekaar se hande hoog hou en saam ‘n verskil maak. Dit sluit in alle persone met gehoorverlies, hul families, werknemers van NID en finansiële ondersteuners. Almal werk saam om NID se drome vir die toekoms te bewaarheid.
