British American Tobacco South Africa’s empowerment initiatives support previously disadvantaged individuals by providing training and education to unlock opportunities for self-improvement and self-sufficiency.
This includes activities that aim to enrich public and community life, including supporting the arts and educational institutions, conserving indigenous cultures, and restoring public spaces.
British American Tobacco South Africa has partnered with Rise Against Hunger, an initiative that aims to alleviate hunger and address the issue of food security in the region. Through this partnership, we encourage our employees to volunteer their time to the Stop Hunger Now cause.
Our Mandela Day partnership began in 2013 when British American Tobacco South Africa employees volunteered their time on Mandela Day to pack thousands of meals for the less fortunate. Since then, this employee volunteerism initiative has become an annual event, with the company’s employees packing 120,000 meals for charity in July 2019.
