He said that RS Components was committed to becoming involved with the upliftment of previously disadvantaged individuals and institutions. The company was introduced to Central Johannesburg College (CJC) by Sam Tsima, the owner of Tsima COMETSA Management Group, who has a long-standing relationship with CJC. As Tsima noted about this donation, "It is confirmation of the power of collectiveness in the emerging South African society."

"Central Johannesburg College was selected as an obvious and deserving institution that offers electronic, electrical and mechanical engineering courses for its students," affirmed Andrew. "The training and development of these students in these faculties requires the 'tools to do the job', and with our donation we hope to make it a more effective and beneficial learning experience. Furthermore, RS Components will also run 'Train the Trainer' workshops to transfer knowledge of the equipment to the lecturers and ultimately benefit the students."

Central Johannesburg College was born in September 2001, with the official declaration of Technical Colleges into Further Education and Training Colleges by the minister of Education, Professor Kader Asmal. This declaration followed as a result of a national strategy to restructure South Africa's educational landscape, to provide improved access to a more diverse learner population.

Motsumi Makhene, the principal of Central Johannesburg College, which comprises of four Campuses - Parktown, Alexandra, Highveld and Ellis Park, stressed CJC's commitment to providing quality training to students from all walks of life. Makhene said that he appreciated the donation of R1,9 million worth of equipment by RS Components in that it will benefit all four campuses and their learners.
