Socio-Economic Development

Calulo Investments is very cognisant of the many challenges facing South Africa, and its responsibility to be a good corporate citizen by continuously contributing towards the progress of communities and the country as a whole. A proudly South African organisation, Calulo Investments has tasked the Calulo Foundation with the responsibility of positively contributing to Socio- Economic Development in the country.

The Foundation believes in not only providing financial support to our selected projects, but also in imparting transferable skills that will ensure that  beneficiaries accrue experience, have lasting economic value, and in turn create access to the workplace. This priority ensures that socio-economic development is sustainable and results in better-equipped, more valuable contributors to the economy.

"Helping the previously disadvantaged gain sustainable access to the economy and become economically active."
