In South Africa unemployment is at an all-time high and school leavers are struggling to pursue studies at higher education institutions due to a lack of finances.

The fund looks at sponsoring fees, accommodation and providing an allowance for a select group of students. So far, approximately 35 students have benefited from the program. The sort of people who are eligible for the bursary include: youngsters who reside within a 50km radius of or within the same district in which our plants are located; families with an income that does not exceed around R350,000 ($24,000) per annum, woman-, child- or pensioner-headed families and school leavers who are qualified to enter an institution of higher learning.
