Beyond Painting Classrooms is a FirstRand initiative, which aims to encourage a more developmental approach to corporate employee volunteering.  CAF Southern Africa (CAFSA), an NGO which promotes philanthropy, volunteering and corporate social investment in South Africa, supports this initiative.  Both organisations are joined in our belief that employee volunteering that is planned and aligned with business strategy has the potential to yield greater benefits to both society and business.

The second Beyond Painting Classrooms conference was hosted at the Wanderers Club in Illovo, Johannesburg on the 22nd and 23rd September 2015. The theme of this year’s robust discussion was “Building relationships for socio-economic change”.   Over 130 speakers and participants attended the conference this year.
FirstRand would like to thank CAF Southern Africa (CAFSA) for ongoing support of Beyond Painting Classrooms as well as the conference corporate co-sponsors, Old Mutual and IQ Business, speakers, facilitators, volunteers and participants who gave meaning not only to the conference, but also to the Beyond Painting Classrooms initiative.
