Soshanguve Cricket Club
Khaas Logistics sponsors a cricket team based in one of Pretoria’s townships. The Soshanguve Cricket Club was established by the Northerns Cricket Union in conjunction with the first group of cricketers and coaches in Soshanguve in the mid 90’s. The Union obtained some sponsorships for all Pretoria townships including Mamelodi and Attridgeville and built a number of stadia with good cricket facilities.
However, in the last decade the township cricket teams have seen lessened financial involvement from the cricket union and thus a call for all clubs to be independent was made.
Khaas Logistics has been sponsoring the Soshanguve Cricket Club since July 2013. The club is proud to have produced a number of cricketers who have gone on to represent the province, and one particular player who went on to represent South Africa and still doing so is Aaron Phangiso.
Khaas Logistics sponsors a number of disadvantaged children at Compass, a crisis care centre in Edenvale, east of Johannesburg. We support them by providing money for food and schooling.
The Compass team did a great job researching the culture of charity on a global scale and pressure of the global socio-economic climate has forced the lower levels of society outside of our socio-economic structure. The result is that the poor, homeless, unemployed and uneducated live by their own rules. This is due to the lack of access into our world order and systems. Out of this naivety and desperation to survive, such ills as crime, corruption, abuse and lawlessness are born. The ones who suffer the most are the innocent babies that are born into this current world order.
The centre also has a rehabilitation program for abused and homeless women and children. They provide professional counselling programs through registered counsellors and mental health practitioners. Apart from the financial contribution made towards the course, Khaas Logistics staff members and their families frequently visit the centre to interact and spend valuable time with the children.
