Bursary Programme 2017

Giving Individuals hope for a better future

Bayete Capital and its associates understand the strategic importance of education and skills development amongst the under-privileged students within South Africa. Ultimately these students will undoubtedly form part of the country’s future economy and are imperative to the future growth of our competitive markets.

In 2017, collectively Bayete Capital and its associates raised over R 1 million towards its various CSI Projects. A portion of this funding was specifically set aside to provide financial support to various bursars identified from within our CSI network and affiliated NGO’s. A group of 27 students where shortlisted throughout the year and received financial aid for their studies at various levels of education. To date we are pleased to report that over 80% of our bursars passed their required benchmarks set out at the beginning of the year. We look forward to continued growth and support of this initiative and congratulate all those students that put in the work to better their future.
