Siyakholwa staff are of the firm belief that philanthropy is not a new concept in Africa. It is fully embedded in African culture over generations and is practised in our everyday lives.
We learned our philanthropy at the feet of our parents and in the wisdom of our organisation. Siyakholwa Support Workplace Giving scheme underscores this belief. This is a voluntary scheme that was devised by Siyakholwa Support care Centre team members, where staff can designate an amount (however small or however large) to be deducted from their salary each month.
The donations are pooled into our workplace giving fund and members of the fund nominate and decide which initiatives our giving should support. Giving Scheme Donations is for foodparcel, PPES and sustainability development goals for youth,women and people with disabilities in disadvantaged communities.
Over the years Siyakholwa staff have used this personal giving to support many, families, groups and small organisations in rural areas and disadvantaged communities and this Giving Scheme donations have managed to combat the spread of COVID-19.
67900 families benefited, sometimes form transformative initiatives, sometimes for rights activism – but always in solidarity.

      The ongoing pandemic has had a significant impact on all areas of our life and work. Social programmes have had to adapt to increasing and new needs, lockdown restrictions and social distancing, while funders have revised their strategies and adjusted existing programmes. All of this has happened at an accelerated pace.

      How as non-profit organisations these changes we will be monitored? What data collection and evaluation practices have been put in place, and what role has technology played? Will we be able to assess the impact of the pandemic responses?
      The Humanitarian Effort is one of three immediate focus areas for the disbursement of funds donated by Donors to the Siyakholwa covid-19 Relief Fund.
      To provide accelerated aid for South Africa’s most vulnerable households and communities during the COVID-19 pandemic and after, the Humanitarian Effort will focus on promoting human welfare through augmenting the efforts of Siyakholwa to enhance the households’ ability to cope through the pandemic – through sustaining access to food, care and other interventions to alleviate the impacts of economic disruption.
      Food and Ppes
      The food parcels, which will provide a family with food essentials for a two to four weeks (depending on the size of the household), will be delivered during the lockdown period and after as emergency food relief for vulnerable households experiencing severe food insecurity.
