Congratulations to SKF Zambia on the launch of their mentorship programme. The launch ceremony was held at SKF on 15 June and was attended by representatives from SWHAP, SKF and the participating mentee companies (including two union chairpersons). During the meeting, SWHAP made a presentation highlighting the programme approach that encourages partnership between management, employees and their trade unions, while SKF shared the highlights of their HIV and wellness programme motivating the mentee companies to get going.
For the rest of the year, SKF will mentor three companies, Strongpak Zambia, Kitwe Surgery and Southern Cross to set up structured HIV and wellness programmes. The next activities will involve onsite employee sensitisations on the benefits of such programmes.
