Corporate Social Investment

All of BOSASA’s activities are routed in a firm belief that giving back to the community is a vital part of our corporate social responsibility. Within the company itself, we believe that all of our employees are capable of improving their standings.

With regards to our upliftment programmes outside of BOSASA, we have managed to extend a helping hand to communities across South Africa. This is thanks to our national footprint as a company.

THE 4 AREAS OF CORPORATE RESPONSIBILITY WE’VE IDENTIFIED FOR GIVING BACK

At BOSASA, we constantly work on uplifting South Africa in general, as well as our clients and personnel. These are 4 of the ways in which we do so:

After-Care Services

After-Care Services are offered to Young People who have spent time at BOSASA Centres after their cases have been finalised at Court, or after serving a sentence. These Young People return to BOSASA Youth Development Centres for a variety of reasons. Mainly to seek assistance, guidance, job opportunities and some to request financial support to further their studies.

BOSASA Group of Companies by its diverse nature, has been able to employ some of the Young People in the following disciplines; as Artists, Security Officers, Cooks in the Hospitality Industry, Administrators and as Child and Youth Care Workers. In addition, BOSASA has been successful in rendering prevention services, to Young People in and around the communities in which we operate.

Support for these young people is often the most relevant form of assitance in the after-care programme. Liaising and networking with other stakeholders assists with their reintegration back into society.


School, creche and orphanage support

There is no better way to look after South Africa’s future than by ensuring our children are brought up in safe environments.

With this in mind, BOSASA’s outreach programmes have focused on sponsoring many care facilities across the country.

We also believe that it’s vital for our children to receive a solid education. BOSASA therefore sponsors several schools, including a music school.

Providing a basic education is a good foundation, but if we can also give the youth access to the arts, South Africa’s future will be bright indeed.
  • WEST RAND CONSOLIDATED PRIMARY
  • THE TEDDY BEAR CLINIC
  • HEAVENLY PROMISE
  • EMMANUEL AIDS HAVEN
  • THE MZOMTSHA NGQELENI ORPHANAGE
  • KHAYAMNANDI
  • THE FJL WELLS MUSIC SCHOOL
  • ZANETHEMBA SAFE HAVEN
  • VANGUARD HOSPITAL

Community computer centres

In order to empower the people of South Africa, we believe it’s necessary to give them access to the wealth of knowledge available online.

Each of our centres that have been set up around the country is kitted out with between 15 and 50 computers. This means that thousands of people who wouldn’t normally, now have the chance to learn how to use a computer.

BOSASA has sponsored computer centres to:
  • THE FEZEKA HIGH SCHOOL
  • THE ISIBONELO HIGH SCHOOL
In addition community members can receive computer training in our various child and youth care centres across the country.


Staff wellness education & training

At BOSASA, our work ethic is strongly empowered by a desire to uplift and educate all of our employees. Our exceptional training facilities and teachers allow us to do just this. Anyone who wishes to learn has the chance to do so with BOSASA.

We also believe that BOSASA will only benefit from happy, loyal personnel. This is why we have situated our main offices at Mogale Business Park. Our employees are encouraged to de-stress on our Mashie golf course, or by walking through the tranquil gardens. We also have a wellness programme that provides career guidance and life skills coaching to all who apply.

  • TRANSFORMING LIVES
This initiative is about changing people’s lives for the better, every day. To our CEO, Gavin Watson, it’s a fundamental principle that all human beings are capable of succeeding. This idea has also now become entrenched in the way that BOSASA interacts with the world.

Transforming Lives began during Gavin Watson’s childhood and in the years of the struggle against Apartheid. It has since gathered momentum and, now that it’s part of BOSASA, this initiative has the potential to reach and uplift many thousands of South Africans.
"A life transformed for the better, is a life enriched for the future." - Gavin Watson
