Corporate Social Responsibility
Ruwa Football Club
Probottlers, Probrands and Prodairy were approached in 2019 by the Ruwa Local Board requesting sponsorship for their local football team. The team comprises a group of talented young men, from ages 25 to 30 years old, all of whom are unemployed. Progroup Ruwa has committed to taking on sponsorship for the season; having only lost one game in the previous season, the team has been promoted to play First Division for the Eastern Region.
Progroup’s sponsorship covers ZIFA affiliation fees for the year, referees fees, technical personnel fees, players allowances, camping fees and transport to away-games.
Tag Rugby Trust
Tag Rugby Trust Zimbabwe has been doing a great job of organising tag rugby games around Zimbabwe.This organisation supports the development of local communities by working with the youth, mostly children ages 8 to 12 years old.
The programme helps build children’s confidence by giving them a safe and healthy environment to learn new skills and disciplines, which enables them to thrive.
We support this initiative in various ways, but also by sharing our products and beverages with the players and supporters that attend the matches.
Victoria Anti-Poaching Unit
Probottlers donates to the Victoria Falls Anti-Poaching Trust. The Victoria Falls Anti-Poaching Unit (VFAPU) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the conservation of our local wildlife and natural resources. VFAPU protects the wildlife and habitat from poacher pressure (subsistence and commercial), as well as rescuing and rehabilitating animals injured by human interference. Additionally, VFAPU does all it can to train ex-poachers in new skills so they find alternative avenues of revenue creation to give them a sustainable income without doing harm to flora and fauna. In light of these noble initiatives, St. Clairs brand supports this work via its public platforms as well as monthly Anti-Poaching Scout sponsorship.
The other key Corporate Social Responsibility program that Probottlers has championed is regular donations of food to hospitals and old people homes.
The local hospitals that have benefited from this are Sally Mugabe and Parirenyatwa hospitals.
The old people’s homes that Prodairy has supported are Save Old Age People, Ondine Francis Trust, Flame Lily, Lodge Scotia and Westreign Homes.
