While we commemorate Nelson Mandela’s Centenary, we celebrate our own 2018 Econorisk Trainee Group – all with incredible passion for maths, accounting, law and business – but most of all, the drive to make it work.
Our Jo’burg Team
A place of safety for children in need of care from birth to three years. Children are cared for in a homely environment in the transitional period before being returned to their parents or extended family – or placed in an adoptive or foster home.
Our Cape Town Team
We believe no one should have to live on our streets
They are then making a special donation of groceries to help celebrity chef and radio personality, Jenny Morris to make over 1000 litres of delicious vegetable soup with her 67-minute volunteers at the Cape Quarter Courtyard, where she will be hosting a soup kitchen.
Our Durban Team
Neglect and long-term poverty has left communities in the Valley of a Thousand Hills in a desperate situation. Econorisk’s financial support earlier this year brought smiles of joy to the children under OrphanAid’s care. The organisation provides food and clothing to over 60 orphans and destitute families. It also provides school uniforms, sources post-matric sponsorships, provides life skills, arranges recreational activities and encourages income-generating projects.
Creatures Great & Small
We also have a passion for animals – supporting countless domestic homeless, helpless and voiceless furry friends. And, through Veterans4Wildlife (V4W), we voluntarily help to fundraise and contribute time and resources to the operations and marketing of V4W. Their drive to prevent wildlife crime and relentless commitment to protecting the world’s critically endangered species plays a vital role in conservation.
Econorisk’s Andrew Crichton (also COO at V4W,) talks about the donation of ballistic body armour to Emoya Big Cat Sanctuary’s anti-poaching team.
Econorisk aims to make an imprint on our society by providing continued support to various organisations. Apart from our teams being involved with the organisations mentioned above, we also support ‘Hope’: for children between the ages of 3 – 18 diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses, and ‘Tekkie Tax’ – which brings support and education to disabled children in extremely challenging situations.
