With our thrilling boat ride and the fun interactive games in our exhibition, Maropeng is often a favourite place for young people to visit.

That’s why, this year, as part of our corporate social investment (CSI) efforts, we hosted a group of young people from The Bethany House Trust.

The non-profit organisation based in Krugersdorp runs projects aimed at providing support for vulnerable children and young people. The trust treated the children to a visit to the Maropeng Visitor Centre, courtesy of Maropeng.

“Maropeng is about human development. This is our constant theme. We regard our CSI work as one of the most important things we do,” says Maropeng managing director Michael Worsnip.

“The poorest and the most vulnerable in our society need to be the ones we direct the most effort towards. They need to be the ones to whom we show the most generosity. They are the ones who need to be enabled to see beyond their circumstance to what they – and we – might all achieve together.

“We were very happy indeed to be able to host the children of The Bethany House Trust. Maropeng helped them to understand a little of where we all come from; where we are now; and to consider the possibilities of where we might be going,” adds Worsnip.
