Subject: My Father, TREVOR MULAUDZI GIBS/CSE NOMINATION SOCIAL ENTREPRENEUR ON THE BRINK SUPPORT STATEMENT 2007
On coming into this earth, as a child one requires certain things... food, attention, love and care. As the daughter of Mr Trevor Muluadzi I have no hesitation on saying that he has provided me with all of the above and more. Never expecting anything in return but receiving it regardless because he has shown us so much respect over the years as we, his daughters, have grown from girls into young ladies.
As a young girl, I have seen Mr Mulaudzi be a role model for many in the community. He started his career as a geologist working for Anglo Mines after attaining his degree from Wits University. He then left his job to start The Clean Shop, his own cleaning company that addressed issues long neglected by society - hygiene. But whilst looking after the physical hygiene of the community, Mr Mulaudzi (also known as Clever Trevor) has been the source of educational and spiritual hygiene in our community. The Clean Shop, has worked to make sure that school children have frequent access to proper sanitation, an example of this is Wadela Primary School. The conditions at the school were a health hazard for the young children there, with toilets in a terrible condition and graffiti all over the place. It is terrible to think that the leaders of tomorrow were being educated in such conditions but that is why it was essential for Mr Mulaudzi to intervene. His business did not stop there, Mr Muluadzi is known to frequently give out bibles to those who ask, spiritually uplifting those in need and ensuring that whenever he is asked for something he gives the best he can and nothing less.
Over the years The Clean Shop has grown but has not been a selfish endeavour. Mr Mulaudzi, working with a great team of employees, has spread beyond the once neglected schools in the locations and he works on the Anglo mines around Carletonville. The job of The Clean Shop is to ensure that the mine hostels and dining areas are clean and user-friendly. Wherever Mr Mulaudzi goes on the mines, he is greeted with warmth and appreciation because to him the price of a kind word is nothing, and the joy received thereof is priceless. That explains why, so often, Mr Mulaudzi is called to be a motivational speaker for communities meetings, driving people with the power to change the situations in the world for the best. His charisma is a gift that he has shared with all around him, even serving as the Chairman on the Rockland Primary School Governing Body, and being the reason that education is propelled forward in small communities.
As an active member of the Ashoka Fellowship, Trevor Mulaudzi is said to be a pioneer for community development, municipal and health services. He achieves his goal of enriching the community by encouraging teachers to encourage their students to be hygienic because he recognizes the need for suitable living conditions. The Clean Shop has been called by Anglogold, "an example of a successful project" (www.anglogoldashanticom) and has been asked to share his ventures with many, including The Cat's Pyjamas organisation from England. Yet his drive for change has never rested, Mr Mulaudzi keeps at his job diligently and professionally but always touching the hearts of those around him.
Not only is he is a businessman but he is also a friend, a brother, a husband and a father. Mr Mulaudzi, is a father whose presence I always feel and unto who I give so much respect as he is the driving force for my ambition to enrich the community. Similarly, as the eldest of 5 children, he has become the foundation of our family. His family, is not restricted by a surname but enriched by those in communities across South Africa that have had the privilege of working with him as he serves them.
