DONATING THROUGH SOCIO-ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT AND B-BBEE

Socio-Economic Development forms part of the government’s Black Economic Empowerment (BEE) policy. It is the 5th element of the BEE Scorecard for both Qualifying Small Enterprises (QSEs) and Generic Entities.

SOCIO-ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT CONTRIBUTIONS

Socio-Economic Development (SED) contributions are any monetary or non-monetary contribution implemented for individuals or communities, where at least 75% of the beneficiaries are classified as black people in terms of race.

We would be so grateful to have the opportunity to tailor a solution to suit your company CSI profile and ethos. The Government grants received monthly, only cover 30% of a childs monthly expenses.  70% of the monthly expense needs to be raised by donations.  We are in need of financial contributions to cover monthly costs directly linked to the children, such as Education, Transport and Petrol, Medical appointments including eye wear and monthly medicine, Security and Gate Access, food and toiletry items.  We are over 75% black beneficiaries.
GOING GREEN SOLAR PROJECT 
We also have an extremely exciting Going Green clean energy project, whereby we would like to convert our home to solar power and save a massive amount on our monthly electricity costs. Please invest in the lives of our South African children and those that care for them. 
Salaries remain one of our most critical and important expenses to date second to our electricity bill.  In order to teach a child to read and write in their homework, you need to be able to read and write.  Salaries provide quality care and are an investment in both the carer and the children. 
WE LOVE OUR COMMUNITY 
Please join us in an afternoon braai, as your team/family gets to see first hand how they are helping our beautiful home.  Please do drop us a message (whatsapp is best) to arrange a time and date best suited to your diary.

Testimonial

"I came from a place where my future did not look very bright. When I stayed at The Village Safe Haven, I was granted so many opportunities. I was given an education and everything needed to help me do well at school. I even had tutors and I was involved in after school help programs. 

Thanks to all the support I received, I passed matric with a bachelor degree.  I have been placed my first job with the help of Susan Harris and the awesome people surrounding The Village Safe Haven .

I am grateful to my foster parents, Michael and Susan Harris and everyone who has helped me succeed this far in life. 

My next plan is to get a tertiary education studying child psychology. This will be my way of giving back to society. I would like to focus on helping kids who think they are helpless by building them up from the inside.
