Exxaro believes in education and the potential of our youth and teachers

Exxaro contributes to education to improve the quality of teaching and teaching facilities.

Last year, Exxaro’s Grootegeluk mine spent almost R8 million on their education programme. Over 600 learners from 16 schools benefited from the holiday school programme in Lephalale and surrounding villages. Recently the mine also introduced an iPad education programme for deaf students.

In Mpumalanga, Exxaro mines provided extra classes for grade 10 to 12 learners to improve pass rates, helped thousands of learners with extra tuition in various subjects and supported a teacher development programme.

A mining approach to sustainability

The prosperity of South Africa is inseparably linked to the sustainability of our world-class mining sector which contributes almost one fifth of the country’s GDP. Given the wealth of South Africa’s mineral resources, it is a sector that holds much promise, as well as the expectations of thousands of unemployed citizens. However it is also a sector facing enormous challenges. From environmental issues such as climate change and water, stricter regulatory environments, ageing infrastructure and new technological advancements to industrial relations unrest, social development demands and economic downturns, the challenges are vast. In any business or sector, short-term factors often grab the headlines. At Exxaro, we believe that it is the long-term trends that will produce a different world in 2030 and beyond. Hence, it is the long-term considerations that shape our thinking.
