By teaming up with several local NGOs, Astron Energy is helping to bring much-needed relief to those communities that need it most. We are proudly allocating funding to organisations already hard at work offering relief to many South Africans.

Some of our initiatives include meal distribution and meal vouchers, in partnership with Rise Against Hunger, Food Forward SA, Do More Foundation, Country Duty and the Sisonke Community Forum.

Though Astron Energy has been assisting with COVID-19 relief efforts across the country, we have partnered specifically with NGOs and community leaders in Dunoon, situated next to our Cape Town Refinery, to prioiritise support to this vulnerable community.

This includes the distribution of food parcels, educational pamphlets, masks, sanitisers and handwashing stations to local clinics in the area.

Working together with the National Business Initiative and AECI Chemicals, we also distributed innovative handwashing units to families that don’t have access to clean, running water in their homes. 5000 units were donated to the Dunoon community in Western Cape, while 2000 units were donated to the community of Katlehong in Gauteng.

Helping Maths And Science Students Adjust To A World Of Contactless Learning.

The children of “offline” and economically vulnerable families faced the greatest challenges in keeping up with their classes during the most severe national lockdowns. Recognizing this gap, Astron Energy decided to partner with iSizwe Community Wifi to provide internet access to learners in Dunoon, the community neighbouring our refinery in Cape Town. This ensures that they can access resources and material required online, increasing opportunities for learning in and beyond the classroom. Teachers are also able to use online materials to prepare lessons and extend the range of teaching.

Access to online learning devices also poses a serious challenge for learners in impoverished schools. Astron Energy, therefore, partnered with Ruratech to provide schools with tablets that are integrated for the educational environment to make the best use of Internet-enabled learning.

CASME (The Centre for the Advancement of Science and Mathematics Education), a long term CSI partner to Astron Energy, also found itself in need of urgent interventions to ensure the lockdown would not disrupt their learning program offered to schools in the Umlazi District of Kwa-Zulu Natal.

With our support, they were able to connect learners and teachers during this difficult period by distributing learning packets via social media and web-based platforms, including WhatsApp.

In collaboration with the Cape Town Science Centre and Western Cape Education Department, we also launched virtual classes for South African learners, which included online matric master classes and coding classes to help learners with their studies through these free resources.

We will continue to support our social investment partners in innovative ways to ensure that their learning support programmes continue throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
