Corporate social investment

Safe and well maintained communities remain a key challenge for all Namibians. The lack of infrastructure and resources are factors that continue to expose vulnerable communities to economic and social hardship. The lack of adequate safety and security related services in these communities prevent communities from breaking the cycle of poverty and socio-economic hardship. For this reason, Santam is committed to creating a stable and prosperous society - one that ensures a successful country with markets full of potential. The importance of our selected programmes addresses key social risks such as increased levels of violence and substance abuse, as these are the real issues many communities are currently facing and which ultimately affect the children.

We have always seen the potential of young people and endeavour to support the realisation thereof through our CSI programmes. Our CSI strategy's core focus is on YOUTH, which is aligned with our company strategy and our approach to prioritise developmental work. By focusing our CSI strategy on safe and secure community schools and breaking the cycles of violence and crime, we hope to support the long term interest of society as well as our own core business of insurance.

In 2014, Santam group invested just under R12 million into corporate social investment programmes.
