At Elegant Fuel we are passionate about empowering people on their life’s journey. This includes empowering the motorists who travel on South Africa’s roads, and empowering our franchise owners, our fuel suppliers and the many individuals whose Elegant Journeys align with our own journey into the future.
Faith Modipa was just a schoolgirl when she took the first step on her Elegant Journey by following in her father’s footsteps and empowering people through creating employment opportunities for them.
Road safety is one of the most important outcomes of the driver training offered by MasterDrive – and we support efforts by others to achieve it, too. One such initiative is Hollard Highway Heroes, an annual competition that promotes road safety through better and safer truck driving. It identifies (and richly rewards) South Africa’s best truck driver. MasterDrive is a preferred training supplier to Hollard Trucking.
Empowerment in all its facets is central to how Elegant Fuel operates, from its corporate make-up to the communities it supports – and to the people who work for its partners.
Elegant Fuel invites all students enrolled for qualifications in the engineering, accounting and marketing fields to apply for their bursary initiative for the 2019 academic year.
Elegant Fuel moves hundreds of millions of litres of fuel annually, and it’s critical that this is done safely and on time. So when one of our truck drivers is recognised as the best in South Africa, it’s a really big deal for us.
Three students have won Elegant Fuel bursaries collectively valued at R270 000 to cover their studies for 2019. Musawenkosi Vilakazi, of Soweto, who will be studying towards a Bachelor of Commerce in Accounting degree at the University of Johannesburg, was “excited and emotional” upon hearing the news of his bursary win, as his parents had been struggling to meet the cost of his tuition fees.
Nominations for Elegant Fuel's bursary initiative for the 2019 academic year are open, and there are two-and-a-half weeks left for you to nominate a deserving student. We'll be giving up to 12 students enrolled for qualifications in the engineering, accounting and marketing fields all-inclusive bursaries for their undergraduate or postgraduate studies.
A large part of Elegant’s success is thanks to its loyal customers – and to mark the company’s 10th birthday, it invited them to a special customer appreciation golf day at the Messina Golf Club in Musina on Saturday, 27 October.
