OLD MUTUAL FOUNDATION CASE STUDIES IN GAUTENG Sparrow FET College is a Melville-based provider of skills training coupled with life skills and job readiness training. In 2015, the Foundation funded R500 000 to the organisation to provide accredited training to 20 youth in Fluid Hose Reeling, a scarce skill on many mines. The Maharishi Institute: R1 975 000 was funded by the Old Mutual Foundation for the purposes of expanding the for-profit call centre operation Invincible Outsourcing, which provides business processing services to large corporates. The 250-seat call centre is part of a self-funding sustainability strategy by the Maharishi Institute to generate income, which in turn allows underprivileged students free access to tertiary education. The students are also required to work in the call centre during their four-year BBA degree as part of their commitment to ‘earning their education’, providing them with invaluable workplace and job readiness experience. The MASISIZANE FUND focuses on enterprise development and job creation to help alleviate poverty and improve food security in South Africa. This is achieved through encouraging entrepreneurship and capacity development and financing of micro, small and medium enterprises (SMMEs). Preference is given to SMMEs with 51% plus ownership by women, youth or people with disabilities. The Masisizane Fund disbursed R147m worth of funds in 2016 through soft loans in the three high-impact sectors and facilitated the creation of 862 jobs against a target of 625 jobs.
