BT-SA Gives Back

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 strive to 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.

LEARNERSHIP PROGRAMMES

BT-SA has a rich 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”.

BT-SA is proud to support a group of young and upcoming IT guru’s to fulfill their dreams by sponsoring them for a 12 month IT Technical Support Learnership. In partnership with iLearn the learners receive the best technical and practical training in the workplace to equip them for their future in the ICT industry.
