Margaret Nthebule has been the principal of Ikage Primary School in Alexander, Johannesburg, for fifteen years and was partnered with Rapula Modibane, compliance officer at Nedbank. Margaret says that although Rapula's contribution to the school was not monetary, the skills and knowledge he imparted with them was far more valuable. "Rapula was so committed to seeing our school grow. He conducted several financial training workshops which helped our school management team which resulted in some successful fundraising ventures. He revived the professionalism within our school," Margaret said.

Peter Laburn, an independent consultant who has lectured in strategy and change management for twenty years, has availed his skills to Diepsloot Primary School, where he is partner to Joe Makhafhula. An adult education programme which boasts 295 participants was birthed from the partnership. Transnet has also stepped on-board and sponsored a veggie garden which 28 unemployed community members tend to in exchange for a stipend. Joe and Peter are intent on making this food-production initiative self-sustaining within a year.
