Corporate Social Responsibility

social-resp-01.jpg

We fully recognise that our country, South Africa, is challenged in many fronts with a great number of these challenges emanating from our past. It is therefore encumbered on those of us who have access to some opportunities to make it our responsibility to contribute and assist in an effort to bring a better life to many of the less fortunate in our society.

There is so much to be done and therefore our choice of education and sport does not in any way belittle the other needs. We have chosen to put emphasis in these areas because they talk directly to the young people.

As a group, we believe that sport and education are powerful weapons to address, in the long run, unemployment, poverty alleviation, and reduction of crime and rebuilding of family lives, amongst others.

Amabubesi Beneficial Trust was therefore formed on 10 September 2007. The Trust is engaged in Investment Holding and has co-invested with NMT Capital (Pty) Ltd on the Growthpoint Property deal. Since its inception, the Trust has raised over R1.5m and it has distributed over R900 000 to various beneficiaries which include any Educational Institution, any qualifying natural person (Education related), any registered SETA or professional body or industry and any approved or recognized education fund.

Below are some of the institutions who have benefited from the Trust:
