MIC CSI Projects

Our primary objective as an established investment company with a uniquely South African history is to provide strong returns to our shareholder. However, while most investment companies compete on similar playing fields, we are different in that we invest far more than just money. The drive to be good corporate citizens who transform and uplift the companies and communities within which we work, has always been part of our culture and our lifeblood.

The MIC Schools Programme was created to support students by exposing them to a wide scope of vocational opportunities, thus helping them to move from school to tertiary learning environments or even entrepreneurship. There are numerous challenges facing the schools, many of which they have no control over. However, changing mindsets, attitudes and consequently behaviours of educators and learners provides an opportunity for transformation. By changing the mindsets and approach to teaching and learning, schools can reengage and prosper despite their circumstances.

These opportunities come in the form of career days, a performing arts festival, public speaking competitions, motivational talks, take-a-child-to-work days, greening projects,  and various workshops, as well as selective academic and infrastructure support to our schools.

MIC supports enterprise and supplier development through Inyosi Enterprise Development and Inyosi Supplier Development, two specialist funds that provide funding and ancillary support to black-owned businesses.
