We recognise that the sustainable growth of our business depends on our unwavering commitment to good corporate governance, the development and engagement of our people, proactively identifying and mitigating risks, and the sound partnerships that we build with our customers and our local communities. Corporate social responsibility is therefore an integral part of our everyday work. We take our responsibility to “secure your world” very seriously.
Our primary CSI focus area is the development and support of the youth, mainly through education, and development through sport initiatives.  When identifying corporate social investment (CSI) partnership opportunities, G4S seeks to:

Identify community projects or organisations that reflect the interests and concerns of our employees and our business.
Align projects with our core CSI focus areas of health, education, welfare and support of Africa’s youth.
Make a demonstrable difference in the lives of the people we touch. Projects must therefore be sustainable and measurable.
Opportunities must capture the hearts of our employees and customers. Active engagement and participation is key in any initiative we support.

Community Projects to date include:

Bhubesi Pride - G4S Botswana continues to work within the community of Old Naledi which is Gaborone's largest and oldest township. Working alongside Bhubesi Pride, G4S Botswana work with children from this community.  -G4S Botswana continues with its identified Legacy Project in Old Naledi, Tshwaragano Primary School, ensuring that we maintain the infrastructure (replacing door locks and mechanism, fully functional ablution blocks, and replacement of broken window panes that was put in place in 2015.  G4S also continues to drive the message of Health and Safety amongst the Children of the school.  G4S also donated school bags to 40 children during a prize giving ceremony which was held to celebrate the milestones the children have had to overcome in attaining high marks.

Philip Moshotle Primary School – G4S has maintained a cordial relationship with Philip Moshotle Primary School situated in close proximity of the Head Office in Gaborone.  Being a community School which educates children from the area the school advised of the need to partition of a part of the library which will cater for the infant side of the school. G4S through its facilities management team erected and installed the said partition.
