There is no doubt that the Mabopane Community Achievers Awards are the biggest and most exciting event taking place this Saturday. Awards are presented to honour and recognise members of the Mabopane community who have made a positive impact.
The awards recognise individuals who have made significant contributions to the overall enhancement, development, leadership, or promotion of community work and have been actively involved or participated consistently, and have been acknowledged by the residents in the area.
Centre Manager and Organiser at Mabopane Square, Jabu Mahlangu expressed his excitement about the awards.
Mahlangu said that the awards are for an organisation or individual that has demonstrated the positive side of community development aimed at taking care of our people, improving resilience, raising spirits, and finding the best.
This year’s awards will be the third to be hosted by Mabopane Square, and Centre Manager Jabu Mahlangu expressed his excitement about the significant event.
“Our third annual awards will recognise outstanding community-based organizations and individuals for their inspiring contributions.”
“There has been continuous growth in the awards every year. The number of nominees and votes for the awards shows a lot of growth, and our people are starting to take them seriously. We hope to continue this trend in the future.”
“Mahlangu further revealed that a lot of focus and interest is on big international and provincial awards, and with the Mabopane Awards, the aim is to change that.”
“At Mabopane Square, we felt it appropriate to nominate and honour our local heroes, so nothing different from the awards, but we’re doing it locally,” he added.
The Award ceremonies will take place at Mabopane Square from 9:00 AM on Saturday
