The Dell SA Development Fund (DDF) was created with the belief, that by improving social conditions, Dell can improve business conditions.The DDF aims to create literate and connected communities through education, supporting developing businesses and investing in the community. We have a holistic approach that includes creating partnerships with our employees, government and the communities we call home.
Management of the Dell SA Development Fund
Dell South Africa invests a percentage of every Rand spent by Dell customers into the DDF initiatives. These initiatives focus on Dell’s principle of inclusiveness which addresses internal and external transformation. Dell employees make up the DDF committee and are involved in making key decisions about the DDF investments
