Education and Sports remain the most potent weapons we can use to change our society and Vision View Productions is committed to contributing towards these ideals.

Investing in improving the level and quality of education in South Africa is of prime importance to the country’s future as a developing nation. South Africa’s development is increasingly hampered not only by the shortages of scarce and critical skills but access to higher education remains a challenge especially in these trying economic times.

To address these issues, Vision View Productions has raised its hand as a corporate citizen to offer bursaries to deserving students from previously disadvantaged backgrounds. To date we have over 14 beneficiaries with full bursaries at universities across the country. Our work in rural and peri-urban communities has made us extremely proud as this has seen our employees directly engaging with their communities by volunteering and sharing their experiences and knowledge about their crafts.

OUR FLAGSHIP PROJECT – EDUCATION

Vision View Broadcast Career Exhibition which was previously directed mainly at High School students has also attracted a keen interest in the H.E.I sector. Vision View Productions in partnership with Ekurhuleni East College hosted a two-day programme to expose their community of 3 500 students to careers within the ICT Broadcasting, Marketing, and Aviation industries.

The event was held at the Ekurhuleni East College Springs Campus on 12 to 13 October 2017. The 12th saw the ICT, Media and Graphic design students at the college interact with our state of the art outside broadcast trucks and chatting to our employees about the different options in the broadcast industry.

Our operations manager, Miss Thandekile Nyembezi, gave an impressive presentation to a packed hall of students on 13 October, she shared the stage with prominent business leaders on the broadcasting landscape. The other delegates were from Vodacom, SAA, SuperSport and MegaPro to name a few.

SPORTS

Vision View Productions supported an emerging local township boxing promotions company, Team DIDA Boxing Promotions as they hosted a successful 6 Bout Tournament on 28 October 2017. This company is led by the dynamic duo of Meme Dipheko (boxing promoter) and Dida Dipheko (former international boxer and trainer). Their stable has scores of amateurs and professional boxers who have turned into fitness ambassadors in the West Rand.

Our involvement saw us contributing in the following manner:

  1. Event management
  2. Marketing of the event
  3. Technical – including Lighting, Sound
  4. Boxers purse
  5. Packaging and Live Streaming of the Event

Since their first tournament in November 2016, the boxing promotions company has fought and produced three Titles, two Gauteng Championships and one WBF ALL AFRICA TITLE.

Vision View Productions is excited to be associated with partners who are making a difference in our communities and are turning the tide against negative social ills that confront our youth. Our values based on the overarching value of Ubuntu, continue to shape us into a dynamic company that seeks to give our society a more humane face.
