Education & Employment Creation

Cell C believes in providing access to education, resources and building careers and employment creation.

Cell C Bursary Fund

The development and empowerment of youth is at the heart of Cell C’s corporate social investment initiatives. Education remains one of the most important means of achieving gender equity as it empowers youth with knowledge, skills, self-confidence and social and economic status. The Cell C Child Bursary Fund is a financial aid to help less fortunate girls and boys acquire a degree or diploma in their respected fields. Cell C partners with the Tomorrow Trust, a non-profit organisation that provides each bursary recipient with the necessary support in a holistic manner.

Girl Code

With the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR), there is a dire need for critical skills that meet 4IR requirements that will enable South Africa as a country to drive socio-economic development but also compete favourably on a global scale. Developing these scarce skills in youth primes them to fill the much-needed technology-driven roles such as Data Scientists, Digital Architects, Artificial Intelligence (AI), User Experience (UX) and Interface Experience (IX) experts. Cell C has partnered with GirlCode, an SA-based NPO that seeks to empower women through technology, to bring a coding programme to youth aged between 10 and 18 years in South Africa.


Cell C believes in transforming SA’s society and economy while delivering world-class solutions. Youth Employment Service (YES) Programme has been a key transformation avenue in order for Cell C to achieve these goals


Youth development through access to education and digital inclusion is important to us. In partnership with Youth development company, Primestars and its YouthStart Foundation (Maths and Science revision program), Cell C is committed to helping learners across South Africa through the following initiatives; Saving the class of 2020, Standing with the class of 2021 and #In it with you 2022.
