Education allows us to gain self-empowerment, to gather dignity, to grow our aspirations, and it gives us the prospect of a financially stable future. Pretty self-evident right? But imagine not having that. Not having access to the opportunity of a quality education. This is where our Invest 2 Invest Project comes in.
The C2M team met a young lady named Elzonia in 2015, when she just finished Grade 7 at Alpha Primary. It was her dream to continue her education at Durbanville High. This dream wasn’t financially viable. Therefore, C2M established the Invest 2 Invest Project, helping learners in our community, such as Elzonia to reach their full potential.
C2M agreed to sponsor her school fees. And what a remarkable success story it has been! We are proud to say that Elzonia completed her first year at Durbanville High and her results look great. She also completed a job shadow at C2M during the December 2016 holidays. It’s been such a privilege to be part of her journey.
The road to matric is still long. We would like to continue raising funds for Elzonia and other learners in her shoes. In order to do this we need your help! And you can choose how you want to contribute! Download our C2M App today or make a donation, it’s as easy as that.
C2M App Downloads
Download the new C2M App for FREE on Google Play or the App Store. For each App download, C2M will contribute R50-00 towards Elzonia’s school fund.
The continued need for school supplies also remain a financial challenge for families such as Elzonia’s. Donations can be made in cash or tangible items. If you wish to make a donation, or for more information contact Helane Meintjes. (Email: firstname.lastname@example.org)
So go on, help make a difference. Invest today to invest in someone’s tomorrow.
“A passion for sport can unite the youth…It creates a platform that helps them to grow and develop despite social and economic disparities”
Before formal Black Economic Empowerment initiatives were launched in South Africa, C2M was known for our involvement in community development. Director, Carel Steenkamp CA (SA) RA, continuously invests time and money to enable sustainable development in our local community.
C2M is convinced of the merits of B-BBEE as an economic initiative. As proof of this we have established the Masibambane Foundation, an enterprise focused on socio-economic and entrepreneurial development through sport. C2M Chartered Accountants Inc. together with Masibambane ensures the ethical and accountable management of contributions earmarked for development. Masibambane Foundation (MF) is a registered Section 21 entity and is a recognised South African Public Benefit Organisation (PBO) and a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO). The Foundation’s vision is to create a platform for sustainable community development in the Bellville and Durbanville region, giving children from previously disadvantaged communities access to critical social and economic resources. Masibambane is one of a few development projects in South Africa that is sustainable and showing steady growth.
