Social Responsibility

Ukhamba Trust Schools

Europcar is part of the education programme of three primary schools in Orange Farm, Grassmere and Flakfontein. The students come from very poor communities and attend school under extremely difficult circumstances.

To inspire the children to achieve, and salute the ones that are excelling despite their circumstances, we have donated 16 brand new bicycles to the top pupils of the three schools. A bicycle was awarded to the top grade 7 achiever in each class and to the best Maths student in each grade 6 class.

At our June 2009 business and media launch, held at Lanseria Airport, a ‘green carpet’ lay in welcome of our guests. The carpet was in fact real lawn and after the event, it was rolled up and sent to one of the Ukhamba schools in Orange Farm to enhance its playground. The school’s educators and learners were grateful for the donation,which has made a huge difference to outdoor learner activities. The lawn will also ensure that classrooms are kept dust-free, thus ensuring a healthier learning environment for learners.
