What to Expect?
Women at Bain
At the Johannesburg and Lagos offices, we are committed to contributing to the betterment of local society. Simply put, we believe that what is good for Africa is good for Bain. As a result, we work on issues that are critical to South Africa and Nigeria, particularly efforts that improve the social and economic conditions of those in need. We focus on issues where we can have the greatest impact: those that ignite our passions as a Bain community and that leverage our strategic capabilities.
In the spirit of breaking down barriers between communities and offering hands-on help, Bain Africa contiues to participate in Mandela Day. Bainies spend time working with organisations, putting creative, consulting and childcare skills to good use. In the past, we've put out fires next door to TLC Children's Home, painted jungle gyms at Ekupholeni Trauma Centre and Kliptown Pastoral Pre-School, tested business ideas and strategies at The Hub and the Branson Centre of Entrepreneurship, and tested our muscles during rubbish clearing in Kliptown.
Bain Africa continues to make sizable contributions to local organisations through formal pro bono casework. Working with organisations like Endeavour South Africa, the local arm of a global nonprofit organisation that identifies and supports high-impact entrepreneurs in emerging economies, and m2m, an organisation that works to impact the health of mothers and their babies through education and employment.
Our fundraising is currently focused on payroll giving to select South African charities, and support through national observance days. We hold regular in-office events to raise money for and awareness of such organisations. Examples include the sale of Casual Day stickers through the National Council for Persons with Physical Disabilities and the sale of bandanas through the Sunflower Fund (to support leukemia and other blood cancer patients).
