Sword Group have been running a social responsibilty programme from inception.

Philosophy & Policy Statement
Corporate Social Investment (CSI) is a long-term investment in our future as world citizens in general and South Africans in particular. Unacceptably high levels of poverty that result from a fundamental lack of education and skills development are at the core of South Africa’s social development struggle. Sword employees volunteer to contribute cash and kind into social responsibility programmes of different kinds. We constantly look out for partnership ideas. Currently, we sponsor a few learners at high schools in Gauteng for tuition, transport, uniforms, etc. The project has been driven by the members of our social responsibility forum, who independently do research on deserving learners. The funds are limited , so we set minimum criteria for acceptance into the programme.

Current Programme for High School Learners
The High School Programme targets South African children with good academic results at high school in the Gauteng region. The current focus on Gauteng is out of practical consideration: we believe in keeping a close relationship with the beneficiaries of our programmes. We intend to be extend our activities to other parts of South Africa and the rest of the continent in years to come. - We focus on supporting those learners who find themselves in challenging situations due to orphanage, poverty and ill-health of parents or guardians - Preference is given to rural and peri-urban school children - The programme covers basic financial support for tuition, uniforms, transport and books.
