Red Hat in South Africa

Social innovation in Sub Saharan Africa

In 2021, associates launched the Social Innovators in Sub-Saharan Africa, an internal committee to support local, sustainable projects. From long-term financial support for charities who provide nutritious meals to school-aged children, to encouraging students along their educational journey and distributing blankets in the freezing winter, the committee continues to find new and innovative ways to be active and engaged in their community.
