STATEMENT OF RESPONSIBILITY BY
THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS
The Board’s primary responsibilities include determining the company’s mission and values, giving strategic direction, identifying key risk areas and key performance indicators of the company’s activities, overseeing the performance of the company against agreed objectives, advising on and directing significant financial matters and reviewing the performance of executive management against defined objectives.
The Board of Abraham Kriel Bambanani subscribes to the principles of King111 and endeavours to implement the King 1V codes of practice in all material aspects. The gaps revealed in a Gap analysis are being addressed.
The Board of Abraham Kriel Bambanani acknowledges that the sustainability of our operations is inextricably linked to the effective stewardship of our environment. The Environmental Protection Strategy of the company originated from the desire to make a meaningful contribution towards the protection of the earth and its resources, thereby improving the sustainability of the environment in which our successors will provide care and developmental services to children of future generations. The primary objective of the Environmental Protection Strategy is to reduce the carbon footprint of Abraham Kriel Bambanani in order to contribute to the restoration of the health of our immediate environment.
A grant awarded by the NLDTF enabled Abraham Kriel Bambanani to complete the installation of solar geysers throughout the organisation. Not only does this programme reduce the carbon footprint of Abraham Kriel Bambanani, but it also improves its long-term financial sustainability through substantially reduced electricity costs. Since the project was started it has paid for itself more than twice over.
The shifting emphasis towards community care programmes and skills development programmes should also be understood within the context of our quest for sustainability and the needs of the community we operate in. These programmes are a response to the ever-increasing need for care services amongst children and young people affected by the Aids pandemic and the reality of unemployment of poorly qualified people in disadvantaged communities. Furthermore, it promotes the relevance of Abraham Kriel Bambanani in that more beneficiaries than in the previous model can be serviced with the available funds.
