The Big Picture

Stormsriver Adventures is more than just an adventure company, and strives to enrich the surrounding environment and community by honoring the following 10 point commitment statement:

Implementation Of Company Ethos

"Transition", "upliftment"; "empowerment" - before profit.!

Stormsriver Adventures emerged as one of the largest new job creators in the Eco Adventure industry in South Africa. The organization has self-funded the training of guides from the local community since 1998.

The Government's commitment to promote active labour market policies is well demonstrated in the Skills Development Act, 1998 and the Skills Development Levies Act, 1999.

These two pieces of legislation introduce new institutions, programs and funding policies designed to increase investment in skills development.

There are two over-riding priorities that this legislation seeks to address.

Proudly South AfricanProudly South African is the “buy local” campaign launched in 2001 by government, organised business, organised labour and community organisations (the constituencies represented in the National Economic Development and Labour Council – Nedlac) to boost job creation and pride in “local” by promoting South African companies and their ‘homegrown’ products and services.
