In 2013, Old Mutual spearheaded a multi-partner, national education initiative to invest R350 million over seven years, into a number of selected South African public schools in key provinces.

The overarching goal of this Old Mutual Education Flagship Project is to increase the number of bachelor passes (university entrance) amongst Grade 12 learners who have both maths and science in their matric subject choice.

As a result of the extensive planning required with strategic partners in identified provinces, the Old Mutual Foundation does not consider additional funding requests for the Education portfolio.
