South Africa headquartered retailer Woolworths is marking its 85th anniversary by providing 50 educational bursaries or also called scholarships to deserving students of Rand 20,000 each, totalling to Rand 1 million. The retailer has partnered ‘MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet’ for the fundraising programme, available to all Woolworths’ customers.

Woolworths opened its first store in 1931 and a key element of Woolworths’ journey has been a commitment to making a difference in South Africa through a range of community programmes and, in particular, schools and education.

The retailer has partnered with MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet, South Africa's number one community support fundraising programme, since 1999 and over that time has given back nearly Rand 400 million to assist a range of charities, animal and environmental organisations and schools.

Woolworths also manages ‘Making the Difference Education’ programme, which is now present in over 2,800 primary schools across the country with a focus on the environment and healthy living. (AR)
