INVESTING IN EDUCATION


Through our Schools Investment Fund, we have invested over R1.4bn (USD 104 million)* in affordable education across South Africa, providing access to quality schooling for 18 000 learners in 34 schools across the country and employing around 1 000 teachers

Quality education is crucial to breaking the cycle of poverty and it can transform people’s health, life choices and financial prospects. And for South Africa to compete effectively in a global market, there is a clear need for further investment into the education sector. Watch the videos here:
