Projects and Programmes

For the meaningful attainment of the Trust’s objectives, it has to support various projects and programmes both from a financial and non-financial point of view through availability and mobilisation of corporate social investment funding to ensure the sustainability of various projects and programmes.

All efforts and work of the Trust is a display of commitment to transformation of society and socio-economic development, which can be achieved in part but not limited through the following:

Poverty Alleviation and Community Support Programme.

This programme is for identified deserving individuals and communities in particular rural areas and previously disadvantaged communities including townships, physically challenged, women and children.
It also includes support to faith based organisations for the furtherance of Trust objectives. It is designed for provision of cloths, food, shelter and infrastructure to communities

Anti SociaI-Ills Programme.

This programme fosters social cohesion and reflects on the role of the family, leadership, education, religion and media. It also undermines stereotypes that we find in our communities and promotes recommitment by broader society to the Charter of Positive Values that was developed by the Moral Regeneration Movement.
Some of the themes for this programme are:

“Don’t buy or sell stolen goods”
“Don’t buy or sell drugs”
“My home is not a crime scene”
“Let’s prevent violence and crime”

Our hope is that, with support and strategic partnership with South African Police Service and the Civilian Secretariat for Police Service we can also focus on other forms of crime including stock theft and mine crime combating initiatives.

Higher Education Institutions Dialogues

Higher Education Institutions are a centre of intellectual development and human resources development and human resource development for our country and the world. Based on this belief, we have developed a programme that specifically focuses on the key role players at these institutions including students, staff, management and unions. The strategic focus is on the following:


The campaign seeks to educate communities about the negative effects of destroying public property such as municipal buildings/offices, clinics, schools, hospitals, libraries, recreational facilities and community centres. In short, it encourages communities to protect and take ownership of public property located in their communities.
For this campaign to be more efficient and effective, it has to be truly rooted in the organs of civil society and the general communities. As a result, the broader community will be the greatest beneficiary of the campaign.

Anti-Women and Children Abuse Campaign

In the previous years too many women and children have been killed and abused sometimes by those who are close family members and neighbours. There may well be many others who have quietly been disposed of under similar circumstances. Different marches and public protests are a sign of deep rooted anger that our communities have towards such gruesome acts of behaviour across our communities.

The aim of this campaign is to:

Moral Regeneration Month

The Moral Regeneration Month is an initiative of the Moral Regeneration Movement. Every year it dedicates the month of June to activities and events of critical issues of ethical leadership and clean corporate governance in the public and private sectors. This includes the Nelson Mandela legacy and ideals alive for the benefit of future generations, especially the youth.

Scholarship Development Programme

The SDP focuses on partnering with government by identifying particular nodal areas that require assistance regarding performance of schools and it is this partnership that holds the light of success of the programme on a sustainable level. With government matching the input rand for rand with the Trust it is possible to leverage corporate spend to ensure that a meaningful difference can be made in the schools concerned.

As the main focus of this programme, infrastructure in the form of fully equipped computer and science labs, libraries, media centres and administration blocks has to be availed to the selected schools. The target beneficiaries of the programme are black rural communities.

Schools Programme

The focus is on young people who show an aptitude for science, maths and who meet additional stringent criteria from the previously disadvantaged communities and the Schools Development Programme initiative. They are encouraged to study in the fields of medicine, science and engineering and fundamental task of the Trust is to ensure that funding is provided to the duration of their studies. The funding covers tuition fees, books and educational equipment, accommodation, transport and personal expenses.

Artisan Development Programme

Artisan Development Programme offers artisanal and trade training to capable young people from disadvantaged backgrounds. This feeds into the main objective of preparing them to join the workplace and contribute to the growth of our country’s economy. The Trust offers support for training in critically needed technical skills and trades, including electricians, diesel mechanics, boilermakers, welders and millwrights.

Tertiary Bursary Programme

The aim of this programme is to promote our country’s youth and academic achievers from marginalised communities. The Trust identifies deserving previously disadvantaged scholarship candidates with the requisite talent and determination to succeed in their chosen fields of study. Candidates must also demonstrate their academic prowess prior to selection. Students have the opportunity to receive both financial and qualitative life skills support, and to work together with Trust in assisting them to find and access career opportunities.

Scholarship for Advanced Study

This programme seeks to increase the number and quality of black doctoral graduates across disciplines.
