Assupol Community Trust

Working towards universal access to early childhood development

The Assupol Community Trust (“Trust”) is a registered public benefit organisation, established in 2010 to benefit communities in areas where a significant number of Assupol Life policyholders resided at the time of Assupol Life’s demutualisation.

The Trust aims to support the South African government in attaining its goal of ensuring universal access to early childhood development (ECD) for all children by 2030, as prescribed in the National Development Plan.

The Assupol Community Trust is a shareholder in Assupol Holdings Limited and as such functions independently.

Only designated communities may benefit from the Trust.


Notice: Annual General Meeting (“AGM”) of the designated communities of the Assupol Community Trust will be held at 08:30 on Tuesday, 4 August 2020 via a virtual platform.
