We have a rigorous selection process and a performance monitoring system that ensures both accountability and the highest quality service.
Our Vision is a South Africa in which:
- people’s quality of life is determined more by hard work, diligence and integrity than the economic situation they are born into
- these qualities are recognised and rewarded and not masked by people’s preconceptions
- members of our society lead by example and play an active role in bettering this country
- the gap between the rich and poor is continually being narrowed
