Nahana Communications Group launches small business rescue fund
August 2, 2021
R400,000 of this fund is going to assist community radio stations who were devastated by the looting and violence. Essential radio transmission equipment has already been purchased for Intokozo FM in KwaZulu-Natal – which has enabled them to resume broadcasting.
“We believe that community radio stations form a critical part of the media mix in our country and offer an essential service to the community. So we felt it was important to help these great stations get back on air as soon as possible,” concluded Morris
The group has asked employees to nominate any businesses that they know in their local communities that were severely affected. Making a difference in the lives of Nahana Group employees and the communities in which they reside was deemed to be the best place to start in trying to make a difference.
The Small Business Rescue Fund was made possible partly by using budget previously allocated to enterprise and supplier development, which is a key component of the group’s B-BBEE commitments. Nahana will gladly share its learnings in implementing this plan with any other companies that would like to embark on a similar initiative.
