Nation builder – It takes a nation…
Whenever South Africa is mentioned in the news, it’s usually because something has once again gone horribly wrong. Whether it’s corrupt politicians, soaring crime statistics or the dwindling economy, it always seems to overshadow all the positive and beautiful aspects of our country. South Africa, with its diverse cultures, beautiful landscapes and innovative people, has the potential to be the greatest country in the world. And Nation Builder endeavours to do just that.
Nation Builder is a Muthobi initiative that strives to make South Africa a better place. Nation Builder aims to affect positive change through social investment by harnessing the collective power and influence of business, government and society. Nation Builder is a community of like-minded business leaders who strive to use business as a force for social good. They are leaders who realise that building sustainable, successful businesses and a robust economy will require more than just profit and compliance. The businesses that belong to Nation Builder are future-minded and are committed to going beyond mere social compliance to social leadership.
Nation Builder and King Price
Not only is King Price committed to investing in the future of our country, but the king believes that being a member of Nation Builder is the way to do it. The Nation Builder initiative also aligns with the King Price values:
- Customer is king – Rather than being focussed on just the business and profit margins, our focus is on social upliftment and investment in our communities.
- Be real – Let’s be realistic, we unfortunately can’t change our country with the wave of a magic wand, but every little bit we do, does help.
- Live with purpose – What’s the point of being in a position of influence and not using that influence for a worthy purpose?
- Together we can – If it takes a village to raise a child it definitely takes a nation to build a nation. The effort of one person does not necessarily make a noticeable difference, but if we join forces and stand together, we can do anything!
And although Nation Builder is an initiative for business leaders, it is not merely business owners that have the extreme privilege of being able to incite change. You can sit back and choose to complain and moan about the state of our country, or you can choose to be the change you want to see in the world. The choice is yours…
