Giving back to the community
One of the core values at Investec is the philosophy of making an unselfish contribution to the society in which we live, and creating global citizens and leaders.
The children at Itsoseng crèche have recently received four brand new jungle gyms from CAres thanks to the wonderful fundraising efforts of the Investec CA programme trainees. These jungle gyms are specifically designed for toddlers colourful, plastic, light, durable and safe. The children couldn’t wait for the installations to be complete and delightedly rushed to the jungle gyms when they were ready.
The first years are tasked with raising funds for CAres initiative, through a variety of means from raffles to cake sales.
- In November each year the CAres committee organise a Christmas Shoebox
wrapping event where trainees bring a shoebox filled with toys to be wrapped and then distributed to the children at Itsoseng.
- We participate in Stop Hunger Now iwhere trainees package over 20,000 meals which feeds roughly eighty children for a year.
- The trainees host an Annual study workshop for all students associated with Investec in order to help prepare them for final exams.
