The Aveng Community Investment Trust believes that its investment in maths and science excellence at secondary school level is its most effective way of delivering a positive and meaningful social economic development. This focus allows Aveng to contribute towards employment creation by increasing the pool of relevant engineering and technical skills, while simultaneously benefitting disadvantaged, underprivileged communities, our industry and the South African economy at large.
The Aveng Community Investment Trust has selected two best-in-class maths and science projects which consistently deliver exemplary matric results.
Working with Kutlwanong in Limpopo, Aveng sponsors a maths and science centre which provides tuition to 460 learners from 20 feeder schools, as well as a teacher training programme.
In Gauteng, Aveng sponsors a full-time LEAP school for Grade 10, 11 and 12 learners from Diepsloot and surrounding areas.
The Aveng Community Investment Trust will invest a total of R12.4 million in the Kutlwanong and LEAP projects in 2016 (2015: R11m).
