MyBucks' defined social mission is to empower the communities in which it operates. Although the group's product offering by default has a direct social impact on communities, MyBucks contributes generously into corporate social investment (CSR) initiatives. These initiatives are aimed at effecting sustainable and measurable change.
Our involvement not only includes providing funds to those in need; our employees also use their spare time and skills to lend a hand.
MyBucks believes in financial inclusion, and by nature of this, the largest tool that we have to leverage is that of education, which is what MyBucks aims to drive.
Traditional education is a crucial foundation of society, and it is critical that this becomes an area of focus to enable financial inclusion and empowerment. MyBucks places a strong emphasis on partnerships with local schools to aid disadvantaged communities within each country.
Botswana has led the way in terms of forging long term relationships by partnering with Kubung Primary school in the Kweneng province of Botswana.
This is a government led initiative, which is well aligned with our corporate social responsibility objectives.
Initiatives at the school include the sponsorship of uniforms, planting and cultivating a vegetable garden, as well as the donation of teaching aids to assist both learners and teachers.
To ensure that this relationship continues to be productive and beneficial, quarterly review sessions are held so that we remain in touch with the needs of the children and the school, ensuring that our efforts have maximum impact.
