Corporate social investment
LTM Holdings is a proudly Black Woman Owned organization and our Founder Jayshree Pillay has played a major role towards LTM’s vision for our Corporate Social Initiative Programmes.
As a proudly South African organization, LTM Holdings is invested in uplifting South Africa as a country we believe no act of kindness is too small and that if we all contribute equally, we could play a role in uplifting the country as a whole.
As a group we are keen to embrace our role as a good corporate citizen we have a hands on proactive approach in our Corporate Social Investments to ensure they are as impactful as they could possibly be , this approach filters down from management to employees to ensure we not only participate on a corporate level but on a personal level as well, therefore we have various long term and short-term initiatives we intend in participating in over a period of Five-Years.
Through the various initiatives we have carried out we have had a positive impact on the environment and our communities. We consider Corporate Social Governance activities as an integral part of our business, and provide numerous resources within our core focus areas where possible this in-turn stimulates and supports social economic upliftment within South Africa.

They are the world’s largest vegetarian food relief program with 211 projects in 60 countries serving up to 2 million meals daily. To date, the organisation has served over 6.4 billion meals (this number is constantly growing & can be viewed on www.ffl.org), many whom rely on the programme as a primary food source. Many high profiled individuals, such as Apple’s founder Steve Jobs & Nelson Mandela, have praised this organisation for their dedication towards feeding those in need.

LTM Energy teamed up with Centurion Junior Squash (CJS) to assist a group of 15 players who have been identified to participate in the Canadian Open. The cost to attend a World Championship is very high and CJS was looking for businesses to come on board to sponsor towards the expense, LTM Energy was only too eager to get involved in this initiative. SuperSport covered the event with the honorary legend of the game, Nick Matthew (three-time World Squash Champion) conducted ten-day workshop for the junior players of the game.
Message from Pieter Brand – COO of LTM Energy: “As a company we have a passion for supporting the youth & supporting a green economy. The youth and their health are very important to us, we do a lot in terms of social programmes and this for us was one of those nice programs where we can have the youngsters encouraged to take squash to the next level”
LTM Holdings Group has had many success stories regarding Educational Initiatives. In 2019 we asssited with a bursary payment & mentorship for Sashleen Naidoo studying a Bachelor of Science in Engineering majoring in Chemical Engineering at the University of Kwazulu-Natal.
LTM Energy had chosen to offer Sashleen the Bursary as the cost of living is going up, state support for Education is very competitive and not enough funding is out there to accommodate the amount of high performing students interested in tertiary education, student loan debt is constantly increasing amongst the youth and Sashleen had been a straight A student. In the long-term she would also bring new talent to the organization. The organization had wanted her to reach for the stars and reach her full potential.
In collaboration with our community partners, LTM Energy hosted a Blood Drive as part of South African National Blood Service’s GIFT OF LIFE campaign. This event will take place every two months with the aim to increase the provision of sufficient and safe blood for patients who need a blood transfusion as part of their medical treatment. Our long-term commitment to the SANBS is to help ensure that existing and new donors can be targeted through our network and that they can be a part of nationwide culture of blood donors.
Kingsway Centre of Concern is an independent school who have been educating, providing food and counselling for children from extremely poor circumstances. It aims to meet the needs of and provide life-enriching opportunities for socio-economically disadvantaged children who would previously have had limited options for bettering their lives. LTM Energy has partnered with the Centre to ensure the following benefits:
1. To have their electricity supply restored before the Winter dawns upon the children living at the centre.
2. To go “green”. We have already ensured that heat pumps, real time meters, energy efficient lighting & showerheads were installed. Next phase will be solar PV with a hybrid connection to a Generator.
3. To introduce Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy as a focussed subject in the school. This may culminate in an approved curriculum by Dept. of Education to be introduced that can be replicated throughout the country at other schools.
