BEKA Schréder is proud to have won the Best Corporate Social Responsibility of the Year Award at this year’s SEIFSA Awards for Excellence. BEKA Schréder was given this recognition for the work they have done in uplifting a community in one of the more impoverished areas of the country.

BEKA Schréder donated 160 LED streetlights to Chintsa East in the Eastern Cape. Chintsa East, located 50 km north east of East London, is a small village with a big heart for their community. The donated streetlights are installed through the Chintsa East Location, lighting up the streets so women and children can walk around freely at night, kids can play soccer under the streetlights, and everyone feels safer. This is the first streetlight installation for Chintsa East.

Towards the end of 2019, BEKA Schréder approached African Angels to find out what Chintsa East’s biggest need was to uplift the community, and their answer was street lighting. With the expansion of the community, this has unfortunately led to an increase of nocturnal crime activities within the village. With the installation of streetlights, this would be curbed, and the community would feel safer. BEKA Schréder decided to join forces with the Community, Great Kei Municipality and Eskom and to donate 160 ZIYA-E LED streetlights and the installation thereof.

The streetlight installation was met with great excitement. There is a newfound freedom after dark in the village where kids can play in the street and the community can move safely in the streets. This co-lab project is a wonderful example of how South Africans can work together to make things better for all. 

We invite you to view the video of the installation here:

African Angels is a local charity who runs a school for kids from the township, a community computer lab, a boys’ mentoring project, and an early childhood development project. 

BEKA Schréder locally develops and manufactures energy-efficient LED lighting products, designed and suitable for local conditions. We are extremely proud to be associated with this very special project in bringing lighting to a community.
