Invest in SA’s future by creating and supporting your own unique bursary programme

Section 29 of our constitution stipulates that all South Africans have the right to a basic and a further education. To ensure this, our government promises to take reasonable measures in progressively making a further education more accessible and available to learners.

This process however is complex and slow, resulting in the sad reality that many scholars never acquire their matric qualification. The outcome of this unsettling issue is that numerous talented and eager youngsters, despite their dismaying financial circumstances, do not even have the option to pursue a tertiary education.

By assisting companies in setting up a bursary fund programme — granting underprivileged students the opportunity to reach their full potential — Care Protect Invest South Africa (CPI SA) aims to break the cycle of poverty, address unemployment and helps to colour in a better tomorrow for South Africa.

“By investing in the future of SA’s children, willing individuals or companies can play a major role in changing the destiny of suppressed bright students; making them captains of several industries and shaping them to be our future leaders! By sponsoring a tertiary education, you are making a generous contribution to our economy and positively impacting our country as a whole,” says Dinah Bronkhorst, Executive Head of CPI SA.

By successfully managing sustainable study funds over the past 16 years, CPI SA has proven to be an expert in this field. Their highly qualified, professional team will set up your unique scholarship programme and assist you in managing the corporate and financial aspects thereof. The first step, before composing an agreement stipulating your goals, terms and conditions, preferred beneficiaries or institutions and applying your monetary budget, is to determine your needs and outcomes.

According to Bronkhorst all funds are managed following ethical corporate principles and the outputs are continuously monitored. Quarterly reports and an annual independent auditor’s assessment will give donors thorough feedback and steer the investment. Each fund is linked to a unique investment portfolio, guaranteeing stable growth by means of dividends.

“Bursary programmes are an effective and sustainable solution in adding value to a company’s social responsibility portfolio. Not to mention the tax benefit you can receive by making this annual donation. CPI SA invites you to support our calling to ensure that proper education is within the reach of every young, aspiring South African,” says Bronkhorst.

An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.

Bags of Mercy Initiative

South Africa has one of the highest rates of violence against women (GBV). The Bags of Mercy Initiative mobilises women to become an invisible friend to an abused woman by gifting a handbag – old or new – filled with things that can make her rediscover her self-worth.

Abuse against women usually takes place behind closed doors:
Hard words where no-one else can hear.
Blows where no-one can see it.
