CORPORATE SOCIAL INVESTMENT AT OXBRIDGE ACADEMY
At Oxbridge Academy, we are dedicated to making a positive difference in the lives of our students, as well as in the lives of those in our surrounding communities. On this page, you can find out more about the various corporate social investment projects we’ve been involved in recently:
Training & Education at Goodwood Correctional Services
Keep Stellenbosch Warm Drive
On 14 August 2015, Oxbridge Academy’s staff representatives took five overflowing 200 litre boxes to the nearby Stellenbosch Night Shelter as part of our Keep Stellenbosch Warm drive. Throughout June and July, each department at Oxbridge Academy filled one of these boxes with blankets, food, clothes, and other donated items. The Stellenbosch Night Shelter has been active in the Stellenbosch community for over 24 years, relying almost exclusively on charitable donations, according to the Shelter Chairman Dorothy Reyneke. Reyneke told us that the shelter gives homeless people a safe place to stay, dinner, and breakfast the next morning. They also focus on helping homeless people take more responsibility for their lives. “This is not a permanent home – it’s accommodation till something better,” said Reyneke. “You’ve got to learn to try and make something more of yourself.” Oxbridge Academy also donated 10 Ubuntu Short Courses to the Stellenbosch Night Shelter to give those who want to improve their lives through education and vocational training the chance to do so.
