A solid education means a fair chance to make dreams become a reality. That is truly sweet. Be Sweet donates a portion of its profits back to support educational development in South Africa.
The Shaw Park School, a school in the Eastern Cape is where many children of the participants of the local job creation program Be Sweet donate funds on an annual basis to go towards purchasing new computers and a copier machine and grounds maintenance. Slated projects for 2010 are funding teacher training course attendance (Thrass and OBE) to help improve and adhere to the slated curriculum.
Be Sweet is also contributing to a new South African based non-profit educational support program called Bright Start. Their mission is “to offer previously disadvantaged children a ‘brighter future’, by placing them in prominent local schools with proven excellent educational standards. Bright Start provides ongoing support and guidance to ensure the child reaches his or her full potential.”
