The South African Post Office seeks to make a positive contribution to the people and the environment in which it operates. The corporate value of contributing positively to communities and to the environment guides the organisation’s Corporate Social Investment strategy and our employees’ response to socio-economic and environmental challenges faced by disadvantaged South Africans.
The Corporate Social Investment initiatives are aimed at benefiting economically disadvantaged people especially women, youth and the disabled, with a bias towards rural and peri-urban areas. In ensuring that beneficiaries receive the maximum benefit from our investment, we work in partnership with communities, not for profit organisations and like-minded organisations to offer integrated sustainable solutions. The primary focus of our Social Investment Initiatives is to empower people to ensure sustainable and lasting development. Our areas of investment include; poverty alleviation, digital inclusion, environmental sustainability and HIV and AIDS.
Since 2009, the South African Post Office has been collaborating with several organisations and companies in projects and partnerships that aim to make an economic and sustainable difference in the lives of its beneficiaries.
