Social Investment

Our corporate social investment programme aligns our corporate strategy to our country’s development goals, reiterating our commitment to public sector agendas. By instilling a culture of transformation inside our business, we activate a powerful multiplier effect; empower someone today and they will go on to empower others tomorrow.

Through purposeful social investment, we are able to:

• Help the public sector achieve its agendas (National Development Plan)
• Bridge the gap between government and beneficiary (responsible corporate citizenship)
• Create a meaningful corporate culture (instil our value of transformation)
