Sasol in Society
Santa handing out gifts at Sasol pine haven at the Sasol Friendly neighbour programme


Through the Sasol Friendly Neighbour Programme, Sasol Energy continues to make a positive impact by supporting communities that are in close proximity to its participating retail sites. As part of this social impact initiative, Sasol Pinehaven donated educational Christmas packs aimed at uplifting the spirits of children during the festive season to Simunye: We Are One Projects. The donation handover event took place on the 14th of December in Muldersdrift. Simunye is a Non-Profit Organisation that assists 0-6 year-old children from disadvantaged backgrounds in the Krugersdorp area through food provision and Early Childhood Development.

Sasol Energy is proud to have delighted more than 50 children, who benefitted from this donation, which has brought hope and joy to those who ordinarily do not experience the cheer and excitement that comes with the festive season.

In support of the initiative, various Sasol Pinehaven’s suppliers heeded  the call and joined forces to make the event bigger and better by donating lunch for the day. The sponsors included Rolling Chicken, Ola Ice Cream, Magpie, Lettuce Eat, SG Convenience, Twizza (Pty)Ltd , ABI, RCL Foods (Pieman’s) as well as Clover SA proving once again that collaboration is the cornerstone of community upliftment and that it truly does take a village to make a bigger impact.

The Sasol Friendly Neighbour Programme is a Social Impact initiative aimed at uplifting and improving the lives of those who live near Sasol’s Retail sites and is primarily targeted at those who are less privileged. Sasol Energy matches franchisee proposal or co-created concept rand-for-rand on initiatives focusing on education, health, safety, environment, work skills development, and philanthropic interventions.
