Community Development

Our service model

Our In 4 Life flagship programme

The In 4 Life programme provides holistic support to orphans and vulnerable children as well as people with disabilities. From childhood care centres, children are better looked after through the community projects we support. We then help them further with studies and offer bursaries to students who come through the In 4 Life programme. We ultimately hope that when they complete their qualifications they will participate in our internship programme and be employed by the company.

Adopting a school

In the 2012 financial year we announced our commitment to adopt the Memezelo Secondary School in Soshanguve, north of Pretoria. Our aim is to build leadership capability in disadvantaged learning environments. In partnership with the Office of the Deputy President, the National Department of Basic Education and the Gauteng Department of Education. We are working to build capacity in line with the government’s accord on basic education. Alexander Forbes is committed to enhance leadership and improve the learning environment at the school.
