Other Initiatives

Shape Cafe

Shape Café is a social enterprise in partnership with Southern African Association of Youth Clubs. They use their profits, skills and resources to reinvest in township based businesses. They run a 6 month programme for aspiring township and rural area based social entrepreneurs. We were so inspired by their work and their vision that we made rent free space available in Thabong close to SBK Gym where they can SHAPE the community of Sebokeng.

Pheli FM and Capital Live

Safari partnered with two local based community radio stations Pheli FM from Atteridgeville and Capital Live from Mamelodi. These stations broadcast rent free directly from Atlyn and Denlyn Shopping Centres. Capital Live serves a listeners base of almost 600 000 listeners.

Ingenious Minds

The local marketing agency from Atteridgeville, Ingenious Minds, is now proudly based in Nkomo with Safari granting them office space and furniture. They maintain the Nkomo Village website and manage Nkomo’s Social Media pages. They also assist on an ad hoc basis with the marketing of events and exhibitions at Nkomo Village. We are proud to have small businesses like Ingenious based right at our centre and involved, representing our immediate community and making its voice heard in the marketplace.

Young Girls in Need Swakopmund

Safari Investments in collaboration with the Lions Club in Swakopmund launched “Help for girls in need”. This project provides underprivileged young girls with sanitary products. All eleven schools in the area are beneficiaries of this project. Platz am Meer Waterfront also provides storing space for the sanitary products, making accessibility easy when needed.

Football Legends Association

This soccer tournament was organized by the Soccer Legends as part of their development program. It was a ground breaking experience for the organization as six schools participated with girls teams. Only SAFA accredited referees participated and Safari donated generously for food packages, trophies and jerseys.

Food Forward SA

Established in 2009, Food Forward SA addresses widespread hunger in South Africa. This organization connects a world of excess to a world of need by recovering surplus food from the consumer goods supply chain. They implement an ecosystem that uses surplus food as a catalyst for social change. More than 75% of their Beneficiary Organisation’s focus is on education, youth skills development, women’s empowerment and community upliftment. Safari donated money to this initiative to specifically support organizations around the Thabong Shopping Centre in Sebokeng.
