In June 2017, Komatsu officially handed over three newly built classrooms and furniture to the Evander High School. Present at the ceremony were representatives from Sasol Mining, the Department of Education, the school's governing body and the Evander High School teachers.
According to the school's principal, the completion of the classrooms could not have happened at a more convenient time! The three classrooms were opened immediately to allow 150 students to sit for their mid-year exams.
Dinah Williams, the Komatsu Transformation Director, noted that corporate South Africa is trying very hard to help education. Most corporations partner together to offer solutions like infrastructure improvements and support programmes. She said "when all children are given an equal chance to obtain quality education, they learn and drive economic growth, fuel innovation and become better equipped with the necessary skills needed to escape poverty and build shared prosperity."
