Vhukoni Incentive Programme
The Vhukoni Incentive Programme is a bursary and support services initiative funded by the Calulo Investments Group. Vhukoni’s mission is to fund tertiary level education, allowing previously disadvantaged students the opportunity to study towards a career in the petroleum and allied services industry at any university in South Africa. By providing access to tertiary education, the Vhukoni Incentive Programme hopes to play a positive role in overcoming poverty and disempowerment in disadvantaged communities.
The Calulo Foundation further assists the bursary holder with securing employment during vacations and permanent employment within the Calulo Group, upon successful completion of studies.
Palesa Makau, a recipient of a bursary from the Vhukoni Incentive Programme, recently completed her studies of Bachelor of Accounting at the University of Johannesburg, and was successfully placed for full-time employment with Calulo Fuels as an Accounts Controller in April 2017.
