Ziyanda is acutely aware that access to educational opportunities are not always easily accessible to many South Africans. As we believe that education underpins the success of both individuals and industries, we have developed an initiative called “A&All”. The initiative encompasses three programmes:
Our goal is to establish libraries and to improve existing libraries in areas where we develop/provide asset management services. We are currently working on our first library in conjunction with our information specialist. The libraries will have a carefully curated selection of African literature as well as a non-fiction.
We assist students interested in the renewable energy-related studies to access bursaries and other education-related support services through our network of partners, clients and other concerned parties. Our first cohort of students are currently registered for Actuarial Science degrees at the University of Pretoria and University of the Witwatersrand.
We also assist university students with internships in the renewable energy and related industries. This includes introducing students to renewable energy projects in the design phase, modelling, and all other things that connect MWs to the grid.
We are always looking for partners for bursaries, internships, etc. Please let us know if you would like to know more about the our “A&All” initiative, and how it could assist your project to meet its economic development obligations under the PPA and/or IA as well as to improve your B-BBEE scorecard.
