FCM Travel Solutions (in conjunction with the Flight Centre Foundation) are building the future bosses of South Africa with donations of school uniforms, stationery, toys, a percentage of our profits and the time of our expert staff members to activities centered on the following pillars:

  • Offering bursaries to children and students from underprivileged backgrounds. The Foundation currently supports 100 children in an afterschool programme, 6 high school children, 2 children at a Special Needs School and 2 tertiary education students.
  • Working closely with ECD centres in Diepsloot, Hillbrow, Cosmo City to assist with classrooms, stationery, food and volunteer work to aid early childhood development.
  • A whole school project at Qhobosheane Primary School in Soweto – this entails renovating classrooms, building a library and science lab, playing fields, kitchen etc and is aimed at being a 5-year project.
  • Getting involved in projects such as the Kynsna Fire Appeal, Reach for a Dream, Cansa and various old age homes and animal charities.
