Cape Grace invests in the broader Cape Town community with their corporate social investment through these initiatives.
SOS Children’s Village
SOS Village South Africa is part of a global federation working to protect and care for vulnerable children. Cape Grace sponsors one of the houses in the Thornton SOS Village, where staff members are also encouraged to get involved.
Uthando South Africa is an organisation that works with and supports a collection of independent, inspiring community development projects and charitable institutions across a broad spectrum of sectors. Cape Grace currently supports two of these initiatives, namely:
Masizakhe Youth Art Project
MYAP (Masizakhe Youth Art Project) was established to support the youth especially in disadvantaged areas. The project seeks to develop young people’s innate talents in dance, drama, poetry, singing and literature.
Eziko “Fireplace” Cooking and Catering School
Eziko is a community-based project located in Langa, and acts as an entry-level skills provider in catering and hospitality. Cape Grace supports Eziko by offering internship programmes in our kitchen for their top students.
Christel House is an International Education-based NON- Profit Organisation with the mission to break the cycle of poverty and build self-sufficient, contributing members of society.
The school provides education from Grade R–12 with a strong focus on character development, which is supported by regular healthcare, nutritious meals, guidance counselling, career planning, family assistance, college and career support.
Christel House sees Childhood Development and the support of the family unit as the building block of society and they believe that each individual not only deserves the dignity and respect, but also has the right to an education. We currently sponsor two of the children’s scholarships. In the words of Nelson Mandela, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
