The Omega Development Trust is dedicated to making a difference to social development in South Africa and regularly contributes to three worthy beneficiaries, New Jerusalem Children’s Home (http://newjerusalemchildrenshome.org), The Metropolitan Engineering College and the Kearsney Foundation PDI Bursary (http://kearsney.com).
New Jerusalem Children’s Home
The centre is a place of safety for abandoned and abused, orphaned and vulnerable children and has sheltered more than 1000 children since its establishment in September 2000. In those early days the centre comprised of a house and double garage which served as the boys’ dormitory. Today it boasts a girls’ residence, boys’ residence, an administration building, a Montessori Preschool and a Montessori Primary School. Children attending the schools come from New Jerusalem Children’s Home as well as from surrounding communities.
Omega Digital’s association with New Jerusalem Children’s Home began in 2006. We are extremely proud of what the Home has achieved over the years particularly in terms of the difference made in many children’s lives – some of whom have been reunited with relatives, some adopted and fostered and others today in Colleges and Universities.
The Metropolitan Engineering College
Located in Braamfontein, Johannesburg, The Metropolitan Engineering College focus is primarily in the area of Information and Communication Technology. They undertake corporate training and in addition assist students in need particularly those who are living with disabilities. Courses include – amongst others- robotics, cyber security, cloud computing, web development, augmented reality and development of apps – all particularly relevant in the era of the 4th Industrial Revolution. Omega Digital has undertaken sponsorship of disabled learners – 28 in the current year alone, has installed Audio Visual equipment in classrooms within the College and has hosted learners for workplace experiences.
Kearsney College is a highly regarded, private boys’ school that has a long-standing reputation as a ‘family’ school, where all teachers and staff are dedicated to nurturing the social, emotional, educational and spiritual needs of every learner, transforming every child into a responsible, contributing citizen.
