The Development Bank of Southern Africa (DBSA) is not a commercial bank, but a bank that identifies opportunities to address societal issues, through projects that prove their social and environmental worth.
The Development Bank of Southern Africa was established as a financial institution with the role of procuring financial and other resources for various developmental projects in South Africa and neighbouring countries.
The DBSA proactively identified this infrastructure gap from social media. Due to a lack of transport, rural learners (some as young as seven) walk long distances and swim across rivers daily to get to school and to return home
The strategic position of the DBSA’s CSI provides for alignment of CSI initiatives to the core mandate and operations of the Bank. Community involvement in any community development project is critical.
The Limpopo Department of Economic Development, Environment and Tourism (LEDET) appointed the DBSA in November 2017 to support the repairs and refurbishment of nature reserves managed by the Department.
