Who we are empowering… EDUCATION CAUSES
In his inaugural celebration address, May 10, 1994, Nelson Mandela said: “Education is the great engine of personal development. It is through education that the daughter of a peasant can become a doctor, that the son of a mineworker can become the head of the mine, that a child of farmworkers can become the president of a great nation. It is what we make out of what we have, not what we are given, that separates one person from another.”
As the SAABC rapidly expands we become aware of the enormous amount of heart-warming community related efforts underway to help empower South African communities. Many we have supported through our fundraising activities with a primary focus on education related organizations given we are all business professionals recognizing the value of education in our own success.
A large portion have been founded and are run by South African expats maintaining close ties to their motherland. Below are profiles on these valuable organizations and ways you can support or spread the word..
