The mission of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada (LLSC) is: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
Since 1955, LLSC has been on the forefront of blood cancer advances such as chemotherapies and stem cell transplantation leading the way to the targeted therapies and immunotherapies that are saving thousands of lives today.
LLSC is changing the landscape of cancer with more than 41 active research projects that explore different avenues of new and adventurous research; ones with promise and ones that will save lives not someday, but today.
Whenever we talk about cancer, we always use the same word. Someday. Someday there will be a cure. Someday we won’t lose the people we love. But when is someday? With LLSC’s research partnerships and patients support services and advocates working for blood cancer patients everywhere, someday is today.

Our Mission: To provide holistic legal and psychosocial support to victims of gender-based violence (GBV) and to facilitate systemic change through strategic engagement with state actors and the communities in which we serve.
South Africa has some of the highest prevalence rates of gender-based violence in the world. In our experience, one of the main reasons for the continued violence is the failure of the justice system in GBV cases which create an environment where perpetrators of violence are not held accountable for their actions. Without comprehensive support services, GBV victims are expected to navigate this complex and often hostile legal process alone with no one to turn to for help when the system fails them. LvA fills this gap using an integrated approach that responds holistically to GBV victims’ legal, psychological and emotional needs, while partnering with local state actors to increase accountability and enforcement of GBV legislation.
Based in the informal settlement of Diepsloot, LvA has provided critical direct legal services, therapy and counseling to over 950 victims of violence since 2014. By walking with clients through the justice system, we ensure that the justice system works the way it is supposed to, while also making sure that no victim of violence ever has to face this road alone.

discovery and practical experimentation. This method cultivates a love of learning and develops creative and analytical thinkers Leadership Our work is to inspire youth to be informed leaders and leaders to be better informed Community We value our role as a tool to both urban and rural communities in KwaZulu Natal to experience the tangibility of science

Our motivation and conviction is that every child has the right to a loving, caring family and that no child should be left in an orphanage.
At present TLC cares for 32 tiny babies under the age of 3 years upon admission. There are also 36 children between the ages of 3 and 24 years living at TLC on a permanent basis. Several of these older children are HIV Positive (on average 35-40%) and are on Anti Retroviral Treatment.
A major portion of TLC’s work (together with social workers and the department of social services) is to find permanent families for the tiny babies, preferably reunited with their family (2%). If this is unsuccessful then we try to get them placed in local foster or adoptive care (5%) and if that is not possible, we petition the authorities to get them placed in permanent families overseas. We aim to have these babies placed into permanent families within six months of their arrival at TLC. This requires a great deal of concentrated effort, but we feel that it is imperative for the child’s long-term emotional stability that it is united with its forever family as early as possible.
The core of ETA is to ensure that people living with HIV & AIDS are mobilised, organised and empowered in a movement that secures their rights in all spheres of life through education, capacity building and aspire to end stigma thus bringing awareness to a possible effective treatment of key populations.

We are here not only to help those living with HIV, but to support those affected. We aim to work with all groups in our diverse communities respecting all beliefs and cultures.
Effective Treatment Africa will battle against stigma and support the right of all to live equally amongst us. ETA believes in an HIV free generation and are committed to providing all the education that is needed to achieve this goal.

Our vision is to save lives of individuals diagnosed with blood diseases by increasing the number of patients making it to transplant
The Sunflower Fund fights blood diseases like Leukaemia through the recruitment of stem cell donors and maintaining a registry of
potential donors committed to helping anyone in need of a life-saving stem cell transplant. We fundraise to cover the cost of education and awareness about the need for and the process to become a blood stem cell donor as well as to cover the cost of the HLA tissue-typing test involved in the recruitment of donors. The Sunflower Fund also maintains a patient support fund to assist patients who are unable to afford costs associated with getting to transplant as well as being actively involved in creating a platform for support structures to assist patients, families and communities.
THE CHALLENGE: There is a very low number of registered donors across the African continent, leading to few patients finding a match and making it to transplant
The Sunflower Fund

Who we are
The Sozo Foundation is a non-profit organisation, based in the impoverished Cape Flats community of Vrygrond, Cape Town. With a vision to see the community of Vrygrond living with dignity, purpose and hope, Sozo creates opportunities for holistic development through four key areas: Education, Skills, Youth and Wellbeing.
What we do
We run five core projects that work to promote Education, Skills, Youth and Wellbeing in Vrygrond. These projects are Educentre, Eden, Design, Care and Youth Cafe.
GirlCode is a registered non-profit organization. We are a community of women who
truly care about the prospects of technology in Africa. We care about best practices,
innovation, learning, sharing, and above all we care about improving our skills and the lives
of those we teach.
We believe that the only thing stopping girls from having an interest in ICT is lack of
opportunity.The world is moving towards a technologically inclined economy and if we do not
start upskilling young girls, it means that we are leaving out more than half of our potential
employers or employees. As it stands there are over 500 000 job opportunities in ICT yet
we have the highest unemployment rate in recent history due to skills shortage. Access to
technology will open up a wealth of new opportunities for women to fill the growing demand
for ICT and business skills across Africa.
GirlCode is about giving them a chance to create innovative solutions that will have a
significant impact on people’s lives from education to banking and health.
We value our partnerships with major corporate and individual donors and we will serve as
good stewards of your generous investment. We are fully committed to delivering valuable
benefits and a positive partnership experience to each sponsor.
GirlCode looks forward to welcoming you to our family.
