eThekwini Mayoral Matric Awards Ceremony

Nedbank Corporate and Investment Banking (Nedbank CIB) remains committed to better the lives of our communities through education.

In partnership with the eThekwini Municipality, Nedbank CIB awarded the top ten pupils who have done exceptionally well throughout the year with ten bursaries to further their education.

“What makes this an especially rewarding moment for Nedbank CIB is the fact that it illustrates the values behind our support of education as one of the key pillars in building the nation. The concept of lighting fires through education, rather than merely filling vessels with knowledge, is particularly relevant in the South African context,” says Dr Terence G Sibiya, Managing Executive: Client Coverage, Nedbank CIB.

In addition to this project, for the past few years Nedbank CIB has partnered with a number of projects in KwaZulu-Natal such as:

  • My Future My Career Programme
  • Furniture Technology Centre
  • Umthombo Youth Development Foundation

The simple truth is that education, in all its facets, lies at the heart of our nation’s future success, development and sustainability. Without the fire of education burning in the hearts of all our people, no amount of money, passion or empowerment effort will bring about the lasting transformation we all so strongly desire.
