As part of the Cell C Take a Girl Child to Work Day at the end of May 2017, Transnet Port Terminals (TPT) in Cape Town and Saldanha treated female learners in grades 10 to 12 to an exciting day exploring the heart of SA’s maritime industry.

Management from various departments within TPT dedicated their day to mentoring employees’ daughters and other girl students from neighbouring schools in the Western Cape to empower these young women to think about their futures and showcase the various career opportunities available to them. They spent the day at the Terminals learning the ins and outs of the organisation before they were awarded a certificate of attendance.

Transnet believes that women can be vibrant contributors to the economy and leading job creators for South Africa, so the Cell C Take a Girl Child to Work Day initiative is one that resonated with the organization and was hosted at a number of TPT’s terminals across the country.
