ViaData enjoys a close relationship with the Commerce Faculty at the University of Cape Town.
Since 1990 ViaData has sponsored an annual award for the best information systems project undertaken by final year undergraduate students in the faculty. For the past six years, we have actively participated in the IS Honours programme and mentored student project teams. We have been proactively involved in obtaining employment for students from the Faculty on completion of their studies.
In recent years, we have undertaken a number of pro bono projects for the Pregnancy Help Centre and other non-profit organisations based in Cape Town. We have also donated equipment that we have replaced to educational institutions. We also support a number of charities with ad-hoc and regular donations.
