Launched in 2014, the SITA Air Transport Community (ATC) Foundation invests funds into sustainable programs focused on IT education for students and teachers. The foundation addresses the IT and technology skill gaps in Africa, supporting equal access to education, and helping to drive local entrepreneurship.
Each of the programs supported aligns with several UN Sustainable Development Goals, such as Quality Education, Gender Equality, Reduced Inequalities, and Partnerships for the Goals. Our support has positively impacted over 93,000 students through the work of our charity partners: Computer Aid, PEAS (Promoting Equality in African Schools), and the University of the Witwatersrand.
PEAS (Promoting Equality in African Schools)
Our foundation is building ICT labs at schools across rural areas of Uganda and Zambia to expand access to technical education, with a focus on gender equality among students.
Building ICT labs and training students and teachers in ICT skills across Kenya, Rwanda, Ethiopia, and Zimbabwe.
University of the Witwatersrand
Annually funding students (at least 50% women) to pursue studies in STEM fields at Bachelors, Masters, and PhD levels.
Supporting a more sustainable future
SITA has formally reported its environmental, economic and social performance since 2011 using the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) disclosures framework.
