One of the key aspects of doing business in South Africa which we will not outsource is the development and upliftment of those marginalised communities that rely on our investment products to make a difference in their lives. Through an internal process of engagement and debate and factoring in external influences such as the South Africa government National Development Plan, we identified health and education as key inputs into the process of community development and upliftment. It is our view that these inputs can provide a sense of human dignity for people living at the margin.
TriAlpha has identified four partners that have the capacity to assist us in making the process sustainable.
Afrika Tikkun is an international NGO that provides education, health and social services to children, youth and their families through centres of excellence in South African townships. Their aim is to empower communities to develop new generations of productive citizens.
TriAlpha has partnered with Afrika Tikkun in relation to their Child and Youth Development Programme at their Mfuleni Centre of Excellence.
TriAlpha has supported the SAME with key community upliftment initiatives such as contributing towards the building of the HIV Clinic at the Delft Community Health Centre and more recently, contributing towards the construction of the Infectious Diseases Clinic at the Heideveld Community Health Centre (both in Cape Town).
SAMF Foundation is an initiative of AMESA (the Association for Mathematics Education of South Africa) and SAMS the South African Mathematical Society) and its activities include teacher and learner programmes, publication of teacher and learner support materials, popularisation of mathematics and promoting public interest in mathematics research in South Africa. The SAMF Foundation ensures that the combined skills, know-how and professional capabilities of the members of these two societies are utilised in a professional manner. In this way the SAMF Foundation is a central office for Mathematics in the country and represents the entire mathematics community in South Africa. The central target market is the mathematics educators and future users of mathematics.
TriAlpha acknowledges that mathematics as a discipline is a key input into sustaining a high level of investment talent in South Africa. The company is a Participating Sponsor of the 2014 International Mathematics Olympiad (IMO) in Cape Town.
