We are committed to contributing meaningfully to both our country and our local community.

South Africa’s AIDS epidemic has orphaned over two million children. Since 2006, the Johannesburg office has partnered with the Ikageng Itireleng Aids Ministry which helps almost 900 children in 370+ households, offering material support, mentoring, life skills, nutritional and educational programmes. Most of Ikageng’s children live as the head of household, in the role of a parent. Ikageng is unique because it keeps children in their own environment. We have provided advisory services, financial support, operational assistance and a variety of programs including recruiting two school leavers per annum into the McKinsey Learnership Programme.

In 2012, we established the Social Advancement Foundation in South Africa, to support disadvantaged communities through consulting services and financial donations in healthcare and education. We contribute an equivalent of 26% of our annual profits to the SAF; to date, its projects have created 1,735 jobs.

In 2013, we partnered with The Innovation Hub (TIH), the first accredited Science Park in Africa, which supports small business owners. We have invested ZAR8 million through pro bono consulting services, training workshops, mentorship programmes and access to markets. Since 2009, TIH has supported 92 start-up companies (80% black-owned) and created 831 jobs (472 for youth and 133 for women).
