CSI have developed some initiatives with the distinct objective of assisting previously disadvantaged individuals in both the public and private sectors. In striving to consistently live out our core values, we emphasise the development and empowering of individuals. Enterprise Development and Social Upliftment are thus not only corporate boxes to be ticked and buzzwords to be used in our organisation, however we endeavour to positively change and enhance the lives of the individuals we walk a road with.
