Corporate Social Responsibility
At the heart of Confluence, we believe that technology empowers knowledge and can be used to improve lives around the world.
Our corporate social responsibility initiatives represent our commitment to our clients, employees and our communities. As an integral part of our values and corporate strategy, we look to empower those that can help create a better future.
Finding a meaningful way to be involved and strengthen our communities.
Similar to our commitment to helping clients solve complex problems, helping our communities is part of our culture as an organization. With employees operating in 15 offices across the world we all share the desire to make an impact in the communities where we work and empower our employees to actively volunteer and make a positive social impact.
We run several fundraising activities throughout the year including:
We have taken a particularly active role in South Africa where there are substantial inequalities within education and wealth in the country. With a university degree an individual’s earnings can be five to 10 times higher. Therefore, long-term social equality can only be achieved through equal access to higher education.
Investment in knowledge
We have pledged that based on the number of Revolution portfolios sold, we will sponsor selected students throughout their High School and University careers.
A math and science school in Cape Town, we have taken on the responsibility of funding the cost for an extra three teachers to help reduce the overcrowded classes; and make donations towards unpaid school fees.
We help children from disadvantaged backgrounds realize their dreams of a high school and university education. We currently sponsor 49 children through these programs.
Providing quality education to economically disadvantaged children who have the potential and will to succeed, we currently sponsor 20 high-performing students, aged between 13 and 18 and provide them with a full scholarship.
We have donated 14 desktop computers, 29 monitors and five laptops to the after-school project at run at A F Kriel Primary (Montagu) and Riverside Primary (Robertson). Both of these schools (as with most rural schools) are extremely under resourced and currently do not have access to computers. Approximately 110 children benefit from this donation.
