EPI-USE Labs' Accounts Manager Sanele Malwane gives a brief overview of some of the key projects which the non-profit entity Elephants, Rhinos & People has focused on during 2020. These include human/elephant conflict resolution, and projects helping people in the rural communities of South Africa, such as #BIKES4ERP, Food is Life, All Walks of Life and the ERP Community Relief programme.

EPI-USE Labs is a member of groupelephant.com which donates 1% of its annual revenue to cover all of ERP's operational expenses, and to fund projects.  So when clients invest in EPI-USE Labs or any groupelephant.com company, they are contributing towards the safety of endangered species. 

Why Elephants and Rhinos?

EPI-USE Labs is a member of groupelephant.com, which is characterised by a primary strategic imperative in terms of which it goes 'Beyond Corporate Purpose' in its day-to-day activities, through a hybrid business model.

The Group has an unconventional approach to philanthropic activity. Rather than implementing a traditional Corporate Social Responsibility program and simply donating funds to charities, in 'Beyond Corporate Purpose' it has a multi-zoned operating model that provides it with a professional, institutionalised delivery capability in the area of non-profit activity and impact investment.

The primary focus area is the preservation of at-risk Elephants and Rhinos, through the economic upliftment of rural People in areas adjacent to the threatened species, or another definition of 'ERP', if you will.
