Non-Profit organisations need the help of businesses in South Africa

BIGBrave has the privilege of supporting Botshabelo, a multifaceted non-profit organisation based in Midrand, South Africa.  They are passionate about transforming children’s lives through excellent residential care and education.

With the help of donations and sponsors, they are in a position to reach over 1300 beneficiaries every year through their three incredible programmes:

Botshabelo is a registered Non-Profit Organisation with separate financial accounting and annual auditing. Botshabelo also has Public Benefit Organisation status which allows individuals and companies to receive a tax rebate for any donations given to Botshabelo.

B-BBEE points for Enterprise Development and Skills Development are also available through Botshabelo.

Over the years Botshabelo’s vision has been refined and put solidly as a stake in the ground – their vision is to impact the lives of children that need it most. Be it through education or residential care, they aim to set children up with the best start in life.
