HEAD OFFICE INITIATIVES
Fulfils the dreams of children between the ages of 3 and 18 years, who have been diagnosed as having a life-threatening illness by a medical practitioner. We do not discriminate based on race, culture, financial status or any other factor. Each child living with a life-threatening illness is given a chance to dream. Protea Hotels fulfilled many children's dreams and our goal is to fulfil many more dreams in the next year. It is a humbling experience for all involved and we will continue to fulfil dreams to the best of our ability and with passion and respect.
An NGO that provides education, health and social services to children, youth and their families, through centres of excellence in South African townships. Their aim is to empower communities to develop new generations of productive citizens. We spent our 67 minutes on Mandela Day fundraising for this organisation.
Is a South African not-for-profit social enterprise that creates social investment opportunities to change lives. Relate aims to create opportunities at every stage of a project. The corporates who initiate projects with us receive exposure and a platform for building their brand. The causes for whom we make bracelets earn revenue through sales. The makers of our bracelets (ranging from the elderly who supplement their pensions, to refugees, to unemployed township youth) earn an income and are, where possible, up-skilled to move beyond Relate. Protea Hotels purchases bracelets which are used for various causes and then selects our NPO's for the 30% donation to go on to.
Through the work of Habitat, thousands of low-income families have found new hope in the form of affordable housing. Habitat for Humanity has built more than 300,000 houses, sheltering more than 1.5 million people in more than 3,000 communities worldwide. We built a fantastic house with Habitat and our STAFF got their 'hands dirty' in the process. We also donated home utensils, food and other items to the proud new OWNER of the home.
An inspiring community initiative of the Kidz2Kidz Trust 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. We donated over 100 shoeboxes to this cause.
