Telone has finally headed for the Ultimate tourist destination Kariba to officially handover bins to the Municipality. Saturday the 22nd of July will see a cleanup campaign from Kariba Telone Exchange to designated points of picking of litter. This comes with the background where Kariba stakeholders have always been running clean-up campaigns weekly at certain points to make sure that the resort town is second to none regards cleanliness. TelOne acknowledges and values its obligation as a responsible corporate citizen where beyond the chase of financial proceeds for the business, social profit is also put at the kindness of what they do.

The company through its Corporate Social Investment Policy has identified Education, Environment and Social Welfare as key thematic areas of focus for the company for its current strategic period (2014-2018). One of the three thematic areas is the Provide-A - Bin programme runs under the environment theme, where the company is on a drive to prop up cleaning of Zimbabwe's towns and cities through the provision of refuse bins. The other two thematic areas are Add-A-Brick and Mentor-A-Student.

Corporate Social Responsibility originated in philanthropy in the late 60s and early 70s after so many multinational corporations used the strategy to describe organisational activities that impacted their responsibility towards the greater environment. Today CSR supports projects outside the usual business activities of companies that are not concentrating towards making a return but a strong developmental approach and utilise company resources to promote non-profit organisations and communities. It's also viewed CRS spend as a marketing expend which is utilised to prop up the profile of the company brand but as Telone comes to Kariba, the story is totally different.

The Kariba Mayor Mrs Tracy Ndoro is billed to give opening annotations followed by an address by Telone Managing Director Mrs C Mtasa who will also hand over the bins to Municipality at the Housing offices in Nyamhunga Township. It's also promising to be exciting in that there has been a slot where a tree is going to be planted at a chosen situate maybe to signify this donation by Telone and cement relationship with Municipality of Kariba. Kariba as a town has always been known for its desire to maintain good relations with the corporate world thereby benefitting from such ventures. The community is welcome to grace such events and take them seriously for they say cleanliness is next to Godliness. It's a given that ukama igasva huchazadziswa nekudya at Kariba Exchange.
