The name Tirisano means “working together” and with the trust we have a vision of equity, transformation and an economy that builds on the full potential of all communities.
Tirisano Trust is a social development funding organisation founded by Atlas Copco. The trust focuses on the investment, sponsorship of enterprise and social projects that are based in rural areas in the mining sectors, where we do business. The trust was formed as part of Atlas Copco’s commitment to comply with the equity terms of the South African Mining Charter.
Considered projects are enterprises with black controlled shareholding, should demonstrate sustainability, show potential to supply business to mining companies. Most importantly, projects should be sustainable beyond inception.
We strongly believe in enabling communities to develop and prosper by training and providing them with resources, in order to take ownership of projects and create a strong desire for economic literary.
