Corporate Social Responsibility Education offers a wide spectrum for corporations to launch valuable CSR initiatives that not only help solve social issues, but also empower local individuals to be part of their own communities’ economic growth. South Africa still has a major problem with economic and social inequality. Effort is needed to ensure equal access to quality education is the norm.

Corporations can even opt to form partnerships with non-profit organisations such as Mellon Educate in an effort to expand the reach of their CSR actions and to serve local communities in a more efficient and impactful way. The bonus is manifold in terms of the contributions to enabling true freedom for current and future generations through the provision of quality education, while in addition scoring major points for B-BBEE rating.
