In the Community

Bayport’s corporate social investment projects are driven by the same philosophy as its business practices: giving people the help they need to help themselves. The company mostly focuses on education and housing, and favours long-term relationships above once-off donations.

Following is a brief overview of recent projects:

Bayport Ghana

In conjunction with Reach for Change, Bayport Ghana runs an annual Teacher Innovation Competition to find, reward and support innovative teaching ideas and practices that have the potential to transform the country’s education system. The finalists and winners receive financial support, advice, training and coaching to help develop and scale their ideas. The competition focuses on learning in science, maths, engineering and technology (STEM), as well as literacy and numeracy, for elementary and secondary school students. Bayport Ghana also partnered with the Tutudesk Campaign to donate 1 000 branded Tutudesks to Ghanaian children at several different schools. These ergonomically designed, portable and lightweight desks fit neatly on a child’s lap, and are wide enough to accommodate a textbook and a notebook. An added benefit is that the children can take the desks home at the end of the school day to do their homework.

Bayport Botswana

Bayport Botswana built and handed over five homes in response to President Seretse Ian Khama’s Presidential Housing Appeal. Launched in 2010, the appeal encourages the private sector to assist people living in poverty. The Bayport houses were built in Tlokweng, Gaborone, Palapye, Tswapong and Moshupa. Recipients included people like Mrs Thompho Dintletse from Malaka, a grandmother who singlehandedly cares for 19 grandchildren.

Bayport South Africa

Bayport South Africa recently donated a new Isuzu light delivery vehicle to Ndiza Projects, the small black-owned business that is contracted to do maintenance work on all the company’s branches in South Africa. In doing so, Bayport kept a small business in business, saved four jobs, kept three families and 18 people fed, and maintained a long and fruitful partnership. By helping Ndiza, Bayport also earned supplier development BBBEE points, moving it closer to its transformation goals.

Bayport Tanzania

Bayport Tanzania contributed to the construction of the Bayport Kindergarten in Kibaha and donated 205 desktop computers to the Ministry of Public Service and Good Governance in support of ICT development in rural districts.
