Teams in South Africa flaunt their slippers to fulfil dreams

Employees of three Tata companies based in South Africa, celebrated Slipper Day to support the cause of Reach For A Dream Foundation, a charity that fulfils the wishes of terminally ill children

Slippers were the fashion statement for over 150 employees of Tata Africa Holdings, Tata Automobile Corporation SA and Tata Consultancy Services on May 12th, 2017 as the teams celebrated the 6th Annual Slipper Day, an initiative by Reach For A Dream Foundation. The organisation strives to give children diagnosed with life threatening illnesses the opportunity to make their dreams come true.

Teams purchased the special Slipper Day wristbands, the proceeds of which went to the foundation, and donned their best slippers to work. The amount raised by the employees was matched by the respective companies.

  • In true Slipper Day spirit, the Tata teams turn out in their best slippers to support the cause.
  • Slippers on their feet, bands on their wrists and a hope in their hearts for the children of South Africa.
  • It was a day of prize giveaways, laughter and bonhomie in Tata offices in South Africa.
  • Cupcake treats ensured a sweet ending to the Slipper Day celebrations.
