Orvall Corporate Designs’ vision is to give back to the community and to eradicate poverty through education and community upliftment. Our career development project empowers people to become employed and this changes people’s lives. We seek to help those living in poverty and donating school shoes was just one of the many ways we have given back. OCD proudly donated over 60 pairs of Toughees school shoes to the less fortunate children of Ka-Rivala, a rural village in Limpopo. These children have never had the opportunity to wear a new pair of school shoes for the first day of school but OCD made it possible.In-service Training
