Tanda Tula Sponsors Prize for Hlokomela Wellness Programme Awards


Tanda Tula Safari Camp recently sponsored a prize for the Hlokomela Wellness Programme’s employee of the year awards. Hlokomela is focused on providing primary healthcare and HIV/Aids treatment and counselling to thousands of people, who live too far from national hospitals and do not have the means for private healthcare (www.htt.org.za).

Each year the award goes to the employee who shows the most dedication, initiative and passion, and this year it deservingly went to Solomon Ngobeni for his outstanding work. Solomon receives the grand prize of a luxurious two night stay at Tanda Tula Safari Camp.

HOEDSPRUIT – Every year Hlokomela Wellness Programme chooses an employee of the year by way of a performance appraisal of all the staff. The five best candidates are then up for a vote by their colleagues, to decide who is the top staff member of the year. Being the employee of the year at Hlokomela is no mean feat as it takes hard work and a lot of dedication to achieve this honour.

This year, Tanda Tula in the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve sponsored the grand prize of a weekend stay for two at this luxury lodge, and the very deserving employee for 2011 is Solomon Ngobeni! In previous years Motswari and Ngala also sponsored fabulous prizes.

‘Thank you to these lodges, and especially Tanda Tula for their willingness to sponsor prizes’ says Christine du Preez, director of Hlokomela. ‘The fact that the community of Hoedspruit, and in particular these lodges, are willing sponsor prizes for Hlokomela’s staff, really warms my heart! is such a great reward for the hard work they do throughout the year’ continues Christine.

‘I wish there could be more prize winners, because there are so many staff members who work incredibly hard. They have an immense passion for their work that you rarely find these days’ concludes Christine.
