Mincon Group’s Social Impact CSR programme has made a meaningful difference to hundreds of students during the first half of 2022. Initiatives headed up by the team at Mincon South Africa have helped to provide basic necessities for hundreds of disadvantaged youth and adult students at four schools and one community support organisation.
The team in South Africa coordinated with teachers and learners at each location to determine how they could best assist those in need. The initiatives to date include:
