Cell C Foundation
"Cell C believes that women can be vibrant contributors to the economy and leading job creators for South Africa.
By empowering young women to think about the future that they would like for themselves,
Cell C believes that this possibility will become a reality."
- Suzette van der Merwe, Managing Executive of the Cell C Foundation
Cell C's philosophy as a company extends further than its core operations and it takes seriously its role as a corporate citizen. Known as the consumer champion in the South African telecoms industry, Cell C has supported strategic CSI initiatives since it was launched in 2001. Their CSI policy has been rooted in the company's belief that it wants to do more than keep South Africans talking. CEO Jose Dos Santos says, "Our philosophy is that it is within each of us to inspire, to influence and to lead by example. We believe the power is in our hands to embrace social change and it's our desire to leave a lasting legacy we can be proud of." As proof of their dedication and passion, the Cell C Foundation was established towards the end of 2013 with a dedicated board led by Chairman Yusuf Mahomed.
