Cape Town -

Fundraising and Marketing for NGO

ID 2013


We are cooperating with a nongovernmental organization that serves children, youth and education providers in Cape Town's impoverished informal settlements (townships) through academic, enrichment and personal development programmes. The organization aims to expand horizons, build confidence, empower and inspire the communities they serve through a range of programmes at early childhood, high school, post-matric and tertiary levels.

The offerings have been developed in response to community needs to help beneficiaries build academic and life skills, prepare for and succeed in further education and employment, and contribute as leaders to South Africa's economic and social development.
