Professor Marcus Ramogale, acting Vice-Chancellor & Principal has welcomed the support from Gift of the Givers which will ensure that MUT does not suffer severely in the event of future disasters that could affect the supply of water. “The support from Gift of the Givers augments what I have been reiterating in various strategic meetings about scenario planning. We should be at a point where we do not have the academic programme disrupted by future disasters. My office is also engaging in further talks on how we could partner with organisations like Gift of the Givers to ensure that our local communities are able to provide basic first aid and disaster management when crises hit them.” The Marketing and Communications office is currently on the ground engaging local churches to identify individuals that will be trained for this programme.
