CIB Africa Cape Town partnership with Joostenberg Primary

Over the past two years the Cape Town office has been supporting Joostenberg Primary, a farm school that caters for 550 primary school learners.


…a good education is another name for happiness.

During this time, in partnership with other contributing parties, including clients and community members, Absa colleagues have contributed to the purchase of computers for the school, provided computer training for the teachers, undertaken a library upgrade, planted a vegetable garden and taught a range of important life skills.

Over May and June 2014, the local Citizenship Champions were involved in two exciting activities. The first was the revamp of learners’ toilets that included the painting of the school’s outdoor furniture, an exercise valued at R93 000.

The second was “Take a girl child to work day” that saw 25 female learners interact and engage with several featured guests, including a medical doctor, an SA netball champion, a social worker and Absa colleagues who discussed the different careers in the banking sector.
