Schneider Electric supports GivingTuesday

First Quarter 2021 News & events

Schneider Electric South Africa has, in the run up to GivingTuesday, rolled out complimentary virtual training to its education partners network across southern Africa. These digital training sessions are provided by the company’s skilled employees and support its continued commitment to energy education in the region. The company has also donated a substantial amount of equipment for practical training. The GivingTuesday training forms part of the Schneider Electric Foundations’ global Tomorrow Rising campaign, launched in response to the global pandemic. This places the focus on supporting educational institutions with complimentary training sessions, which are mostly digital due to the pandemic’s restrictions.


Luvo Dubulo completed entrepreneurship training before starting his own business.

Speaking volumes for the success of the education network is Luvo Dubulo, who after undergoing his entrepreneurship training, started his own business and is still affiliated with the training partner, Vaal University of Technology. One of this year’s equipment recipients is the Wits School of Electrical and Information Engineering. “We are grateful for the donation of the breakers from Schneider Electric. The role of our Energy Laboratory is invaluable in preparing students for the challenges in the energy industry,” says Professor Willie Cronje.

GivingTuesday has grown from a simple idea – a day that encourages people to do good – into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate and celebrate generosity. Whether it is making someone smile or helping a stranger, the movement demonstrates that every of act of generosity counts and everyone has something to give.
