BAM Group gives back to the community

MASERU - The BAM Group CEO Mrs Ntšepeng Tšita Tikiso emphasized the importance of hard work, to achieve your goals in the business environment.

The CEO emphasised this at the Gala Dinner to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the establishment of the BAM Group of Companies. She stated that where they were previously employed, the ethos of the siblings was to learn all there was to learn and more, about the work they were currently doing, which is what later drove their decision to strike out on their own.

It took courage and a great leap of faith, because they knew they had God on their side, when they looked at their prospects in what was a male dominated environment.

However, they took the step and registered the Management and IT Company. She fondly recalled their first client, Lerotholi Polytechnic, which was launching an autonomous IT-based accounting system which was novel for the time. Their first cheque, she remembered, was a princely R9, 000 and a time for jubilation.

Now the company can give back as it has done, a cheque for M30, 000 in partnership with Vodacom, a Website worth M15, 000 as well as other gifts that fulfill the Corporate Social Responsibility, highlighted elsewhere in this paper.
