XPE took an initiative of elevating education which is one of the top 5 priorities of the Government by making our own small contribution in furthering the dreams of others in our small corner. This was done through scholarship awards.
We wrote letters and challenged government entities and the cooperate sector to match us rand for rand in the launch of this initiative in 2013.
This will now be an annual activity of giving back to our own people in the communities that we have platform on. Given the lessons leant in the pilot project, the awards will always be held in February annually. Letters have already gone out to different companies requesting counter funding in an attempt of increasing the financial pool, size and number of recipients.
We once more “Towards the Idea that will never die” commit an amount of R100 000 and invite ideas and contributor towards this clarion call of re-engineering the outlook of our society through education.
This is an annual intervention that we do and we are now engaging cooperative institutions to partner with us in this noble cause, which is seeking to realize and educate the nation. Our minimum amount contributed is R100 000, with the hope of increasing the value in future by sourcing additional sponsors that can fund this initiative. Our minimum amount contributed is R100 000 and we hope that this value will increase with time as we are only funders.
