Sasol Inzalo Foundation donates Mobile Science lab to rural schools around Cradle of Humankind

Johannesburg, South Africa – Sasol Inzalo Foundation (SalF) has donated a state-of-the-art Mobile Science Laboratory to be used by learners in rural schools around the Cradle of Humankind in Krugersdorp, Gauteng.

An innovative solution which addresses the lack of essential science equipment at schools, a big advantage of mobile science labs is that they can be shared by several schools in the same vicinity. This is due to their ability to travel from one school to another on a daily basis, where at each school teachers and learners can conduct science experiments using apparatuses in the mobile lab.

This is the seventh mobile science lab that SalF has donated over the last financial year.

“We currently have other Mobile Science Labs serving schools in the Libode, Lusikisiki and Mount Frere and Cofimvaba District (Eastern Cape), Fezile Dabi District (Free State) and Northern Cape” said Dr Mapitso Molefe, Director of Sasol Inzalo Foundation.

“We are rolling out these mobile science labs in partnership with the Department of Science & Technology, Hartebeesthoek Radio Astronomy Observatory (HartRAO) and National Research Foundation (NRF). This is part of our mandate and commitment towards building the capacity to teach and learn science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects in our schools,” she said.

Sasol may, in this document, make certain statements that are not historical facts and relate to analyses and other information which are based on forecasts of future results and estimates of amounts not yet determinable. These statements may also relate to our future prospects, developments and business strategies. Examples of such
forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding exchange rate fluctuations, volume growth, increases in market share, total shareholder return, executing our growth projects and cost reductions, including in connection with our Business Performance Enhancement Programme and Response Plan. Words such as "believe", "anticipate", "expect", "intend", "seek", "will", "plan", "could", "may", "endeavour", "target", "forecast" and "project" and similar expressions are intended to identify such forward-looking statements, but are not the exclusive means of identifying such statements. By their very nature, forward-looking statements involve inherent risks and uncertainties, both general and specific, and there are risks that the predictions, forecasts, projections and other forward-looking statements will not be achieved. If one or more of these risks materialise, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, our actual results may differ materially from those anticipated. You should understand that a number of important factors could cause actual results to differ materially from the plans, objectives, expectations, estimates and intentions expressed in such forward-looking statements. These factors are discussed more fully in our most recent annual report on Form 20-F filed on 27 September 2016 and in other filings with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. The list of factors discussed therein is not exhaustive; when relying on forward-looking statements to make investment decisions, you should carefully consider both these factors and other uncertainties and events. Forward-looking statements apply only as of the date on which they are made, and we do not undertake any obligation to update or revise any of them, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
