Social Upliftment

Our culture is founded on the belief that we, as an organisation, must have a positive impact on the success and well-being of the communities surrounding our buildings, and the residents within them. Furthermore, we are firm believers in giving back and creating leaders who can contribute to creating a better South Africa, which underpins our commitment to educating the youth of our country.

We aim to enrich the lives of those communities surrounding our developments as well as create opportunities for youth to build a better nation through our educational initiatives.

Social Initiatives

ASSISTING IN BUILDING A NEW HIGH SCHOOL

Equites partnered with the LEAP Science and Maths Schools to redevelop a high school just outside Equites Park, Meadowview. The school currently operates out of prefabricated classrooms and the joint project aims to develop a solid-structure to facilitate a more stable environment for learners. Equites is committed to supporting LEAP as it was founded to promote the positive transformation of communities through education, a cause we align by.

PROVIDING FINANCIAL AID & MENTORING THROUGH BURSARIES

In partnership with The Michel Lanfranchi Foundation, Equites continues to offer full-cost bursaries to second year students enrolled in property studies at the University of Cape Town. The aim of these bursaries is to provide students with financial aid while simultaneously providing mentorship and real-world business experience.

OFFERING LEARNERSHIPS TO EQUIP STUDENTS WITH VALUABLE SKILLS

Equites has entered its fourth year of running the “Equites Learnership” programme which is focused on equipping previously disadvantaged learners with valuable skills to enable them to be absorbed into the workforce. Ten learners have been enrolled in the programme in 2021.

PROMOTING GROWTH OF A SMALL COMPAN

Through our Enterprise and Supplier Development programme, Equites partnered and continues to support Damon At Sons Construction (Pty) Ltd to grow from a small construction company into a large-scale business which provides employment to more than sixty employees, all from previously disadvantaged backgrounds. Equites provides a development pipeline, financial support and mentorship to the company and hopes to develop not only the business but also the individuals involved in key operations into skilled construction industry workers.
