Our first e'Pap tuck shop
We are proud to announce that our co-founder Basil Kransdorff has been awarded an honorary degree for his unique and outstanding contributions that have had a huge impact on society locally as well as at a global level.
An industrial chemist, social entrepreneur and CEO of Econocom Foods, Basil is also the co-inventor of the innovative and low-cost nutritional product - e'Pap technologies - aimed at redressing micro-nutrient deficiencies in marginalised and poorer populations.
Basil's category for the award is for a personal record of distinguished service and/or achievement in some other field of endeavour (e.g. the advancement of democracy and social justice, social service, community leadership, economic enterprise, public affairs, philanthropy, the performing and creative arts) which is deemed appropriate for the University to recognise.
We are proud to be working with Basila and e'PAP to help fight against poverty in Harare and Africa, in general.
Another noteworthy person we would like to congratulate is Samkeliso Masuku for bringing e'PAP into the Pumula community. He is now heading up our first school tuck shop which aims to introduce greater nutrition to the children at Godlwayo School. This is not only a great initiative to help the children, but is a fantastic income generation project at grassroots level.
Thank you for supporting this project.
All the best.
