Charity Information

Our mission is to provide a safe environment in challenged and vulnerable communities where we develop emotionally well rounded Children and Youth who make positive life choices and become contributing members of society.

Reaching over 2000 youngsters every day, the programmes are having a very positive effect on the youth as well as the communities in which they live. The Foundation currently operates 5 after school care centres including Nyanga, Gugulethu, Manenberg and Crossroads, and each hosting over 300 students per day. We provide educational and cultural activities that offer students healthy alternatives to all the negative influences within their society, unlock their creative talent and create future emotionally well rounded individuals, leaders and entrepreneurs for South Africa.

Programmes run Monday to Thursday and a sandwich meal is offered daily to each child. These programmes include after school care, music, HIV / AIDS peer education, greening and environment, literacy, creative arts, drama & dance, sport, and computer literacy.

Community Chest Unogwaja Challenge

Find Out More

Charity Information

The Community Chest Unogwaja Challenge is an incredible journey by bicycle from Cape Town to the Comrades that follows in the footsteps of the youngest winner of Comrades, Phil Masterton-Smith, who when he didn’t have the train fare to get to the race in 1933 – cycled there! This spirit of overcoming adversity despite one’s circumstances is at the heart of Unogwaja.

Funds from the Community Chest Unogwaja Challenge are channelled to educational and community-development projects across South Africa that meet the due diligence requirements that we pride ourselves on.

In the last nine years over R6-million has been raised by riders and support crew for our beneficiaries. We aim to be the change we want to see and believe that nobody should be left behind when it comes to access to health, education, income-generation and community development.

In 2020 we will host the 10th anniversary event which marks a rebirth of the Challenge under the Community Chest umbrella. We are looking for 20 riders along with support crew who will carry the flag across South Africa, inspiring hope! This will be our biggest team to date. Those selected as Unogwaja for 2020 in September of this year will have nine months to fundraise. We see the Sanlam Cape Town Marathon as the first opportunity for Unogwaja and their family and friends to start this journey.

The Sanlam Cape Town Marathon’s vision and values very much align with ours in wanting to be a sustainable and inclusive event that strives to make a positive difference in the lives of South Africans – helping them realise their potential.

We hope to continue our relationship with the Sanlam Cape Town Marathon and aim to fully support the Sanlam Cape Town Marathon, leading up to, as well as on race day. We would be delighted if you would consider us as a charity for 2019.

Charity Information

At Drakenstein Palliative Hospice we believe in caring for the community, in the community, with the community. Helping people, help people, to embrace life and living… a hopeful future.

Traditionally Hospices care for patients with an expectation of ‘dying’. Due to the changing nature of life-threatening illnesses and the poor socio economic climate and limited resources available, we care for not only the infected patients but also their children and the affected community who are confronted with an expectation of ‘living’ with a life-threatening illness and in very harsh conditions.

PERIOD PROJECT

Charity Information

“On average a young woman on school can miss up to 70 days of school per annum when on a menstrual cycle and then needs to work ten times harder than her male counterparts. The purpose of this project is to help lay the foundation for our young South African woman to achieve their dreams by giving them the opportunity to complete school uninterrupted because they do not have access to a basic necessity, such as affordable sanitary towels.

This project is not just about ensuring our young women have access to affordable sanitary wear, but offers opportunities of interest (when they arise) for them to participate in.

To date this project has been able to supply approximately 2000 young women in Grade 12 with a year’s supply of sanitary towels, supported the Hout Bay informal settlement fire victims, the Knysna fire victims and the Cape Town storm homeless victims.

Not only will you be helping our young women to not miss school, but you are helping them to feel confident and giving them a chance at a brighter future.

This project is not aligned to any political party and is here for the benefit of all our young ladies wishing to complete school. Sanitary Towels should be free for all learners -PERIOD”
