Butterbox as a brand feels the need to give back to society. We believe education plays a very important role in South Africa's future. We have taken it upon ourselves to contribute towards enabling individuals in underprivileged communities to better themselves and realize their full potential.
Butterbox works in conjunction with TBT (Towards a better tomorrow). This local charity's mission is to bridge the gaps in educational support structures within South Africa. They aid underprivileged high school students in the western Cape by providing learners with tutoring for various subjects as well as resources in the form of textbooks and stationary.
Apart from making a donation to TBT (% of proceeds) the team took a
day out to meet some of the students and staff at I.D Mkize Secondary school in Gugulethu. We were introduced to the principal Mr Zola Pahlana, he showed us around the school and introduced us to some of the younger learners. We were given a tour of the entire school and its facilities, we were pointed out some of the problem areas they had and how they were going to be dealt with. Overall the trip was very insightful and informative, we made some new friends and vow to go visit again soon.
