Santa Shoebox Project
This festive season we took part in the Santa Shoebox Project, giving back to children who have so little over Christmas.
The Santa Shoebox Project is an inspiring community initiative of the Kidz2Kidz Trust (IT2671/2009, PBO 930031301 Section18A NPO 102-098) that co-ordinates the donation, collection and distribution of personalized gifts at Christmas time to underprivileged children across South Africa and Namibia.
Participating is a profoundly valuable and personal experience with each donor selecting the child he or she chooses to pledge a Santa Shoebox for by name, gender and age. Click here to read more.

We supported The Mustadafin Foundation on behalf of our Muslim staff, clients and families for Eid this year.
– The Mustadafin Foundation
The Mustadafin Foundation was established in 1986 during the Apartheid era. It emerged as a result of political unrest and violence in the Crossroads township. Crossroads, at that time was isolated and violence that erupted was due to faction fighting. It had a devastating effect on the local community, particularly women and children.
