About VW Community Trust

VW Community Trust is very focused on Corporate Social Investment (CSI) activities that result in empowerment.

Using a more practical approach, we go way beyond funding charities and projects. Our flagship projects and other approaches are done in a way to train and educate previously disadvantaged people, so that they can learn and eventually sustain a better life for themselves. In other words, we move away from creating dependency and rather move towards setting an example of self-sufficiency.

As we strive to make a large impact on the lives of others, we have national flagship projects that help us to achieve this. The Ikhwezi Lomso Early Childhood Development (ECD) Centre in Uitenhage on the doorstep of our Volkswagen SA plant is an example of one of our education projects. Another example is the KwaNobuhle loveLife Y-Centre, which sees about 40 000 young people go through its doors every year.

At the VW Community Trust, we let the community know about our projects while giving back to the community. We offer tours of our various flagship projects to show the public what we do and how we promote and create sustainable living for those less fortunate and in disadvantaged communities
