Corporate Social Responsibility

“We cannot always build the future for our youth,
but we can build our youth for the future.”
~Franklin Delano Roosevelt

We are proud to be a good corporate Citizen of South Africa and will continue in the foreseeable future to believe in the power of good actions.  We realise the importance of being responsible for our local community and environment, to create higher standards of living and quality of life in communities.  We demonstrate our commitment to corporate social responsibility by donating time and money to causes such as charities and other deserving organisations. A major portion of our monetary donations are made to charities who support children.

Children – The heart of BT-SA

Our Children, Our Youth, Our Future. Young people hold the key to our future successes and prosperity. They all deserve the best opportunity to realise their full potential and become active and productive members of their communities.

BT-SA Learnership Programme

BT-SA is running a Learnership Programme that is changing the lives of young South Africans thanks to a partnership with Award Enterprise Incubator, to recruit, train and place previously disadvantaged and disabled learners.

Learnership Programme_GenesisLearnership Programme_HowickThe main objective of the Learnership Programme is to reach more young people that could ultimately make a difference in the future of our country. The current learnerships will change not only the learners’ lives, but also those of their families and by extension their communities, and ultimately the country as a whole. To ensure that students are able to subsist while studying, and thus to encourage the completion of their studies, BT-SA pays each student a monthly stipend in addition to paying for their education.

Award Enterprise Incubator’s expertise in this area of skills development ensures that candidates are matched to quality courses that play to their strengths and interests, and which frequently lead to careers in areas in which there are skills shortages – thus increasing their employability upon graduation. They go the extra mile by placing these learners with host companies, where they acquire practical experience in the course of their learnerships, which further improves their chances of finding jobs. That’s important to BT-SA, because we don’t want to merely throw money at the issue, but rather to make a genuine and lasting difference.

BT-SA has a richly layered Corporate Social Investment (CSI) programme that places children, youth and their education at the centre of its efforts to be a good corporate citizen and achieve its vision of “Helping others in need and making our relationships matter, simply because it is the right thing to do”. The company’s partnership with Award Enterprise Incubator and these 12 resulting learnerships speaks directly to that commitment.
