As part of our commitment to contribute to South Africa’s digital future and bridge the digital divide in our communities, we have partnered with the Department of Basic Education to roll out Cell C Digital Labs to schools in seven provinces until 2025.
The project started in 2021, and so far, we have successfully handed over fully equipped and connected Cell C Digital Labs in Mpumalanga, Limpopo and the Eastern Cape, now in the Western Cape.
SEE YOUTH, an all–inclusive youth development initiative that covers a broad array of issues was launched in 2022 and as an evolution to Cell C Take a Girl Child to Work Day programme in response to the stark backdrop of extremely high unemployment, child–headed households, a mental wellness deficit, teenage pregnancies, gender–based violence (GBV), a rise in the school drop–out rate particularly amongst boys, and many other social challenges that the need to go beyond exposure to careers for young people became apparent.
As a proudly South African company, Cell C ascribes to the philosophy of compassion and kindness as the catalyst for real change. Every month, Cell C is spreading smiles by encouraging acts of kindness. An act of kindness is a gesture of goodwill towards someone or something. It doesn’t have to cost anything or much; what’s important is that it’s an act of expressing genuine care for another person or living being.
It’s contagious and an opportunity for people to work together, create positive energy and inspire hope. Cell C believes in providing short-term & immediate humanitarian aid that will relieve crisis stricken individuals, communities and animals.
