Our vision is for all children in host communities to have access to excellent education and training.
Educating future generations
We have a number of programmes in education and development, from schools through to tertiary institutions, along with as programmes targeted at building skills and leadership capability.
We develop skills in mining as well as non-mining-related sectors, and provide basic literacy and numeracy to our employees, contractors and community members through adult basic education and training programmes.
The programmes include the Anglo American South Africa Education Programme, in partnership with the Department of Basic Education.
The programme focuses on 100 early childhood development (ECD) sites local to our operations, as well as a "Whole School" systemic approach for 100 primary and secondary schools in these areas. All of these schools are "no-fee" schools. In other words, the communities in which they are located do not have the means to pay school fees, and therefore the schools simply don’t have the resources that many other schools do.
