Giving Back

In keeping with the values of its founders, the Dass Group remains committed to giving back to the community. Its focus is in education. It regularly supports Rotary initiatives, the Vedanta Centre South Africa, Masuku Primary School and the S Dass School for the Disabled.

S. Dass School

The school was established in 1987 and addresses the needs of 180 severely intellectually challenged, marginalised and indigent children. For most of these learners, the School offers the only safe environment for happy and healthy social interaction.

Gold Cup

The Dass Group organises a full day event at the Gold Cup races in Greyville. They sell tables and seats to corporates and individuals. With its entertainment and camaraderie the event has increased in popularity and funds all of which go to the S. Dass School.

Vedanta Centre South Africa

The group supports the activities of Vedanta Centre South Africa. The Centre organises lectures, classes and study groups for the public to learn Vedanta, the timeless philosophy of life and living. In addition it brings reknown philosophers Swami Parthasarathy and Sunandaji to South Africa every August for a lecture tour.

Golf Day

Another annual fundraiser is the Golf Day. Participants register individually or as a four-ball. It is a day of competition and fellowship with an array of prizes. Between the two events, nearly 100% of all funds needed for the S. Dass School are raised. It has enabled S. Dass School to maintain a high standard of education, care and support.
