Sasol's corporate social investment (CSI) initiatives prioritise people-centred, needs-driven and sustainable development of communities.

We support education and skills enhancement programmes, small-business development and job-creation efforts. Conserving the environment and fostering arts and culture are also critical to our social investment mix.

We play an important role in improving health care and people's well being. Reducing the impact of HIV/Aids is one of our primary concerns.

With education being one of the main pillars of our corporate citizenship, Sasol sees the Global Water Experiment as an opportunity to position chemistry as an exciting career possibility amongst our youth and a solution to humanitarian challenges

We are using the Global Water experiment as a means to engage with impoverished schools in our area of operation by equipping them with chemistry kits and educational collateral around the Global Water Experiment and the Global Water Crisis.

We aim to reach in excess of 20 000 learners across 200 schools in South Africa.
