Former President Mandela once said that: “Education is the great engine of personal development. It is through education that the daughter of a peasant can become a doctor, that the son of a mine worker can become the head of the mine, that a child of farm workers can become the president of a great nation. It is what we make out of what we have, not what we are given, that separates one person from another.”
Interstate Bus Lines understands the importance of education for the youth. It is for this reason that a major portion of the IBL CSI budget is spent on education, sport and healthcare. These sponsorships vary in forms, from free travel vouchers, monetary donations and in kind donations. Amongst the Interstate Bus Lines greater educational programme, IBL has been a long standing sponsor of Sand Du Plessis Primary School. IBL provides free travel vouchers for 56 Sand Du Plessis Primary School learners most of whom come from disadvantaged communities. Interstate Bus Lines remains committed to the development and education of our future leaders.
