Corporate Social Investment
The great and legendary Nelson Mandela once said “Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world”. At African Proficient Group we strongly believe in uplifting communities through educational programs. We continuously walk this talk through our upliftment projects. Education is priority since we believe if there is any change which can be effected, such will be driven by education.
Valdezia100 is a tertiary education fund which assists students from the impoverished village of Valdezia in Limpopo, who then intend to give back to the community where they come from. The program helps in funding University tuition, accommodation costs and living allowance. African Proficient Group is a sponsor and partner of this organization which has seen high performing students accessing university studies. The organization was established in 2013, seeing its first student register at the University of Limpopo Medical school in 2014. It now boasts a number of students both in medical school, commerce faculties and law faculties.
Leamogetswe Safety Home
Leamogetswe Safety Home is a registered NPO / Child & Youth Care Centre situated in Atteridgeville (Saulsville) west of Pretoria. African Proficient Group is a proud supporter and donor, and has adopted the home in the form of caring for the improvised teenage girls. We believe in affecting positive change through afterschool educational activities, such as young successful motivational speakers who discuss various educational topics with the girls, educational games, pampering sessions and goodie bags to raise their confidence, and inspire the girls to succeed and rise above their circumstances.
