“Stewardship” is defined in the dictionary as “the careful and responsible management of something entrusted to one’s care”.
We asked some of our Board members to reflect on this definition and to explain how it was part of the work that Ditikeni did this year. Their answers are published in our Annual Report, which you can read here.
Ditikeni has managed to distribute R10m to its beneficiaries over the past financial year. As you can see in this performance highlights page below, the ordinary distribution has been increased every year for fifteen years, and by 20% p.a. for the past eight years. Our stewardship has helped grow the value of our shares one hundred-fold.
