The grantee supports community initiatives in the Western Cape province through making small grants, partnering with communities in implementing their programs, and building local philanthropy by encouraging giving circles and asset-building initiatives within communities.

This grant will support the grantee to implement programs that encourage and enhance local giving within communities and to strengthen community efforts aimed at improving the quality of their lives.
