We take a company-wide stance on our role in society and look to tackle local issues in the communities we work in. Supporting local school, Sinenjongo High School, is part of Capita South Africa’s ongoing pledge to support young people and families in the area.
Sinenjongo High School in Joe Slovo Park, an informal settlement in a suburb of Cape Town, is a new school, to replace the previous set up of temporary classrooms. Most of the students come from lower income families and some find it difficult to support their children with equipment and school uniforms.
In partnership with Marks and Spencer, Capita South Africa provided 96 children, nominated by the school, with a complete uniform consisting of five pairs of socks, two pairs of trousers and two school shirts as well as a new pair of school shoes and a blazer.
