Local Economic Development (LED) Projects

Tip Trans Resources (Pty) Ltd., is a mining company that operates in the Western Cape.

Through the Social and Labour Plan, a mining right holder must meaningfully contribute towards Community Development in the areas where they operate.

Abbotsdale ACVV Early Childhood Development Centre

The LED Project of the mining companies originally involved the expansion and upgrade of an existing ACVV Early Childhood Development centre. However, during a needs analysis of the community in conjunction with the Swartland Municipality as well as the ACVV, the centre has been converted to serve as a community centre under the directorship of the ACVV. The premises will be utilised as a social worker contact point, skills development centre as well as community service point for various initiatives, including but not limited to, women empowerment and youth development initiatives.

Pietie Fredericks Youth Centre- Piketberg

After consultation with the local municipality, the Piketberg Youth Centre was identified as a sustainable community project. The project has already been approved by the Department Minerals Resources and Energy. The building plans has also been approved and the project has been supported by PPC De Hoek. The municipality requested assistance with the building as PPC De Hoek’s budget only covered 50% of the project cost. The building has been designed to be built in phases. The project will commence in July 2021.

PVVK Management Service CC and Tip Trans Resources (Pty) Ltd. will assist with the erection of the youth office which will be managed by the Non-Profit Organisation. The mines will engage with PPC De Hoek and the Bergrivier Municipality with a Memorandum of Understanding. The project will be a joint project of Platkloof Sandwerke CC and Ou Winkel Werf (10070MR).

The youth office will hugely contribute to the sustainability of the Non-Profit Organisation and the future of the Bergrivier Youth.
