South Africa needs educated, skilled and literate citizens to help it grow and develop a thriving economy. Without access to decent schools, dedicated teachers, books and other resources, children face an uphill battle to educate themselves and improve their lives. To help address these needs, PetroSA’s Community Affairs programme supports new and existing primary and secondary schools serving disadvantaged communities by providing:
- Basic school infrastructure, including buildings, ablution facilities and classrooms
- Science, life skills and computer laboratories and assistance with maintaining these facilities
- Mathematics and science learner support programmes, as well as teacher training and development programmes
- Training to develop the capacity of school management bodies at funded schools.
