Cape Town is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. It has an incredible mix of cultures, religions and people. It is also a city where first and third world live next to each other. While the city is in many ways very comparable to any large city in the first world, there are townships on the outskirts where people live in incredibly poor conditions and struggle every day with things we take for granted.
We feel that as a company it is our responsibility to contribute to the community.
Since 2010, we have been sponsoring children to study at Westerford High School, one of the most highly-regarded public high schools in Cape Town.
Each Westerford student that we sponsor is one more citizen with better access to education and thus, better future opportunities than before.
We also support the community organisation in Mitchell’s Plain and their Soup Kitchen.
It is a hands-on experience where students and volunteers would attend and assist with dishing food for this previously disadvantaged community. Good Hope Volunteers provides the transport free of charge and the funds collected goes to the Soup Kitchen to buy food and provisions to sustain the foundation.
Afterwards, there is time for fun activities such as interacting with the kids, playing soccer, doing hair and nails with the girls and just taking your time for giving something back to the community.
