As those who have worked with us for some time will know, OSC has been very proud to call itself a Social Enterprise for many years. The combined efforts of the OSC team, the fantastic IB teachers who work with us, the schools who support our work, and the college and university venues we work with, have created a highly-valued suite of additional support for IB students, and in doing so have been able to generate generous funds for philanthropic projects.
Our shareholders, GEMS Education and Pamoja Capital, recognise that this aspect of our work is very important to the whole OSC community, and have given their blessing to our continued social purpose. We are delighted that they have approved that 100% of our profits for the 2017-2018 school year (including both Spring and Summer 2018 courses) will be donated to philanthropic causes.
We are currently considering a blend of causes to support (all related to education and IB in particular) and will let you know that decision in due course. In the meantime, many thanks for your continued support.
