The difference between 'the haves' and 'the have-nots' is extreme in South Africa. Despite our wealth of natural resources, over 60% of all South Africans have to survive on as little as R671 (R22,37 a day or less). A further 40% suffers from extreme poverty and cannot afford to pay for the most basic needs. They actually have nothing. their children suffer the consequences. It is for that reason that MAMAS Alliance exists. To overcome this poverty and give South Africa's children and youth a fighting chance!
MAMAS Alliance is a network of 50 reputable, independent, autonomous grassroots organisations, working in remote, rural, semi-urban and urban areas in South Africa.
The CSI Agency aims to simplify CSI by facilitating and supporting the partnership between the funder and the NGO. The Agency works at no cost. All funds flow directly from the CSI-funder to the benefitting NGO.
We identify effective, reputable, well-run NGOs within our network to fulfil corporate CSI strategies. By monitoring investments, providing regular reporting and facilitating site visits where desired we make CSI easier for both companies and NGOs.
Our guarantee to every company is this: 100% of the funds invested in a CSI project go directly to the intended NGO, and thus the intended beneficiary. We take no fees and no commissions.
The end result: a well-run programme, creating real sustainable change for both the NGO and
Children's Fund MAMAS is a Dutch organisation that supports the MAMAS of South Africa. It was named after remarkable women in South Africa who take a stand and accept the responsibility of giving love, care and future of South Africa’s vulnerable children.
