Giving Back To The Community

OK Zimbabwe's pledge and commitment is to ensure that the Group continues to invest back into the communities it serves and operates in.

Our Key CSR Initiatives

The Group’s flagship CSR initiative which involves establishing tree nurseries within all the provinces of Zimbabwe – excluding Harare and Bulawayo – saw us setting up four (4) additional nurseries in 2015. OK is involved in the celebration of World Tree Planting Day, held annually on the first Saturday of December each year.

OK Zimbabwe is actively involved in sponsoring or donating to causes in the areas of health, education, students’ employment, charities, sports and the environment. Children’s Homes, Old People’s Homes, Hospice Centres and Disabled People’s Associations are amongst the beneficiaries of OK Zimbabwe’s Social Responsibility efforts.

Through its 64 branches, OK Zimbabwe Limited is involved in various local community activities. The branches are proud to be able to make a positive contribution to the communities in which they operate.

Below are some of our key social investment programmes:

The Company continues to provide both preventative and curative health delivery services to its employees. Outreach programmes to family members of the sick and bedridden employees revealed a growing need for generic as well as systematic counselling services, which were provided through professionals.
Staff development is one of our core values. A substantial number of our employees are enrolled on various education and training programmes at tertiary and professional levels. These programmes provide succession material for technical and managerial positions in the Company.
The Retail Management Development Programme comprising the Internal Management Trainees and Graduate Management Trainees remains the cornerstone of our management development endeavors. For the general staff our focus has been on the sharpening of skills and competencies.
