School, Creche & Orphanage Support

BOSASA IFM, along with the rest of the Group, has acknowledged that South Africa’s youth, especially those in poorer communities, are in need for better care and educational systems. Guided by strong corporate social responsibility, we have implemented the BOSASA Giving Back programme, which covers a wide range of upliftment avenues. It's our policy to offer support to those communities in which we do business. With our national footprint, there are numerous places we can assist, including:

Creches & Clinics

We fund many public nurseries or hospitals, which assist in the care of infants that come from disadvantaged backgrounds, such as:

  • The Teddy Bear Clinic A non-profit organisation that was established in Gauteng as a response to the urgent need for medical examinations to be done on sexually abused children.  It ensures that neglected youths under the age of 18 are protected and rehabilitated by offering counselling, safety and ongoing support. Additionally, this clinic implements programmes which are aimed at providing parents, schools and communities with the appropriate skills to identify and end mistreatment. The BOSASA Group of companies actively supports this facility by sponsoring some of the construction and maintenance work required.
  • Emmanuel AIDS HavenThis facility first began as a sanctuary for disenfranchised people who didn’t have the means to travel into Port Elizabeth to access health centres. It offers quality medical care to those who live below the poverty line in the Motherwell Township, just outside the city. Due to our ventures in PE, we decided to assist Dr Mamisa Chabula, the founder of Emmanuel AIDS Haven, in achieving her vision and donate towards the running of the facility. As a result, it now boasts a fully functional crèche for orphaned and HIV positive children, a day centre and an eye clinic.
  • Vanguard Hospital This is a newly established treatment centre, which allows people from the Langa and Bonteheuwel areas the chance to access anti-retroviral drugs, as well as necessary medical equipment. Our emotional and financial support is highly valued within this facility.
  • Khayamnandi This learning centre is situated in a township in the Western Cape and provides critical early education to about 35 children between the ages of 3 and 5. It houses a full-time cook, a state-of-the-art kitchen and Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) compliant equipment. We have acted as the primary financial backer for this institution, as well as helped them provide the children with proper daily meals.


At BOSASA IFM, we believe in focusing on the education of our youth and providing school support. The administrative units we work with are designed to impart skills and knowledge to students. These include:

  • West Rand Consolidated PrimaryThis school was first established to educate the children belonging to the miners within the area. It now provides education for youth from surrounding areas and offers a brighter future for those students whose parents cannot afford school fees. At BOSASA IFM, we chose to get involved with this facility and eagerly allocate funding to the maintenance as a result of our firm belief in child education .
  • The FJL Wells Music School This arts institute is aimed at the disadvantaged youths in Bhongweni, Randfontein, and is inspired by the belief that musical instruments and lessons help learners perform better. It proudly offers the children new opportunities, which include entrance into music competitions, new instruments and equipment, as well as covering their school fees. Our responsibility here lies in our determination to help this school maintain its primary function as an education facility. The children are all encouraged to display equal dedication to their academics, as well as to the arts.
  • Khayalethu This youth centre was initiated by the Gauteng Department of Social Development to cater to destitute children. Alternative care and intervention programmes are offered to these young people in order to help them build healthy, secure and productive futures. This facility focuses on valuable skills pertaining to work-environment etiquette, social manners, budgeting and expense planning, successful management and the ability to obtaining drivers licenses.

    We're proud to support this temporary home, as we're built on a foundation that strongly supports the provision of extensive life and vocational skills to all South Africans.


There are public institutions which are responsible for the care and protection of children who are without parents or families. We support many such organisations, including:

  • Heavenly Promise A non-governmental initiative situated in Vanrynsdorp and is responsible for providing children from poverty-stricken homes with the chance to rebuild their futures. It offers recreation, aftercare and homework assistance through relevant developmental programmes. The employees here are also equipped with substance abuse training in order to help the youth who may experience such difficulties. The Group has been contributing to the success of this unit since 2005 and we provide the back-to-school kit that each child needs to encourage learning. We have also donated a computer to the facility for their administration, as well as funds to cover staff member’s salaries.
  • The Mzomtsha Ngqeleni orphanage - This children’s home is situated in the Eastern Cape and is responsible for the protection of about 62 orphans between the ages of 7 and 17. We began sponsoring this orphanage four years ago and assist it in providing the youngsters with food, therapy, medication and security.
  • Zanethemba Safe HavenRecognised as a charity foundation, this facility is one that we at BOSASA proudly encourage. It acts as a temporary secure care facility and works closely with child welfare organisations in the area, as well as the Department of Social Development. Children are placed here because they have either been abandoned or taken away from their primary caregivers by a court order. They are provided with a safe and welcoming home until a more permanent solution is found. A few elements that this base offers to the youth in need include security, medical attention and the provision of a loving parent figure.

Overall, BOSASA IFM, along with the main Group of companies, has many outreach programmes, which are aimed at providing the youth with opportunities to build successful and brighter futures. Through our partnerships and active involvement with all of the institutions mentioned above, we clearly demonstrate that there is more to success than money and international recognition. It is also about being able to support and contribute to these organisations, which are all committed to the welfare and skills development of the leaders of our future generation.
