Education & Training
SAB&T FOUNDATION has a firm interest in the education sector whereby we have been integral in the contribution towards a variety of projects to help.
Here are some of our previous beneficiaries:
Literacy for Life – ‘Adopt a school’ project
Literacy for Life is a Non-profit organisation. They assist cash strapped schools around the country by providing them with stationery, art materials and WriteRight educational products.
The “Adopt a school project” is a programme where companies can adopt a school and help the children in the Foundation Phase, enjoy the opportunity of being able to help them to learn to read and write, as well as drawing and painting.
SAB&T FOUNDATION supports this initiative on an annual basis.
Thuthuka Bursary Fund
SAICA joined forces with the Association for the Advancement of Black Accountants (ABASA) and the PAAB to create the Thuthuka Bursary Fund and has since assisted many struggling students to complete their studies and reach their dreams of becoming a CA.
The Thuthuka Bursary Fund is intended for academically strong black and coloured students, excelling in Mathematics, who wish to pursue a career in Chartered Accountancy (SA).
SAB&T FOUNDATION is an active contributor to the Thuthuka Bursary Fund and we fund a minimum of four full-time students studying toward becoming Chartered Accountants at various tertiary institutions. Over and above a financial commitment, our firm further provides opportunities for these learners to fulfil their practical training requirements with the firm.
Tawakul is an online fundraising platform that integrates crowd-funding with basic donor relations and messaging functionalities. It is a feature-rich self-hosted interface which lists multiple projects from multiple NGO’s on one site.
The SAB&T Foundation got onboard to help promote and sponsor the Entrepreneurship 101 Series, that would help demystify the entrepreneurial landscape – and expand the general start-up knowledge. The Foundation also helped raise funds for 6 month old baby diagnosed with Billary Artesia, and in need of a liver transport which costs R350 000 for the operation.
