Millions of people across the world volunteered 67 minutes of their day on Thursday as they honoured former South African president Nelson Mandela’s birthday.
Table Mountain Aerial Cableway strives to make every day a Mandela Day (read about our Corporate Social Investment). Says Cableway marketing manager Collette van Aswegen: “We try to do good every day by providing access to people who would not normally have the opportunity to visit Table Mountain.”
Every year numerous organisations make use of the Cableway’s Corporate Social Investment (CSI) programme to give thousands of people a free trip up the mountain in the cable car.
Schoolchildren are given concession tickets to enjoy the Class in the Clouds programme. The programme has been running since 2002, and for a small fee, any South African school can join Table Mountain Cableway’s educational programme, which gives learners the opportunity to discover the top of Table Mountain and learn about the natural flora and fauna found on it
The Cableway is a leader in responsible tourism, and CSI forms an important part of this.
