As part of our new “Bearing Fruits” CSI initiative, we have chosen to partner with MAD Leadership Foundation to help bring about change in the lives of young South Africans.

MAD Leadership Foundation, founded by Francois Pienaar, focuses on leadership development through education. The approach is to identify deserving scholars with leadership potential, who do not have the necessary financial resources, and offer them comprehensive, long-term and personal support in the areas of education, mentorship, leadership and life-skills development, ensuring they have the necessary tools and opportunities to reach their full potential as future leaders of South Africa.

This partnership includes a monetary donation to pledge our commitment to this cause. Along with this pledge, we will be collecting and donating items needed by the scholars throughout the year. We will also be taking part in the mentorship programme to help develop the leaders of tomorrow.

We are looking forward to this partnership and excited about the journey that lies ahead. Together, let our work and actions benefit humanity!
