JDK Benefit Trust’s Mission is geared towards the empowerment of black women, and disabled persons from the previously marginalized communities. The Benefit Trust will support initiatives that have the potential to assist the beneficiary to become self-reliant. Beneficiaries are defined as a Black Person in South Africa. Such a Black Person shall at all times form part of the Defined Class of Natural Persons. Defined Class of Natural Persons, definition: “Black People studying in the fields of accounting, economics, human resources, logistics and health and safety or any other sector that can benefit the Donor’s operations, at any recognised tertiary education facility in South Africa”.
Amongst other initiatives that JDK Benefit Trust believes in is that the Beneficiaries must have the following Values:
- To conduct themselves in a manner which demonstrates honesty, integrity, commitment and credibility;
- To treat others with the respect they would like to be treated with;
- To re-invest time and acquired skills to others with the goal to pay-it-forward in a way that will uplift and empower; and
- To constantly strive to do their best.
Ultimately the objective is to ensure that the commitment in empowering others, will display tangible results. The Trustees of this automotive skills development trust look forward to positively interacting with all eligible young South Africans who are South African Citizens, are Previously Disadvantaged Individuals, are self-motivated and are between the age 17 to 21.
