Improving Lives Through Education
The power of education to positively transform life paths and lay the foundation for personal and national success is widely known. The Foundation provides support to children and youths to access and fully maximize educational opportunities through the provision of grants, scholarships and internships.
The Foundation also aids the transition process of youth into the world of work through its mentorship programme. Here MMS employees volunteer as mentors to encourage and provide guidance.
Participation in sport activities not only builds good health and physical stamina, but also provides opportunities for persons to develop the strong mental and interpersonal skills they need to succeed in life and in business. The Foundation is proud to support team sports in communities as it is a proven avenue, for young people in particular, to develop the values and attitudes needed to improve themselves, their communities and the wider nation. These values and attitudes include:
Some of the sport initiatives undertaken by the Foundation include sponsorship of:

- Golf tournament to raise funds for children’s home
