GirlCode

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.

Keep The Dream 196

ORGANISATION MISSION:

“Our mission is to assist children to overcome difficult life circumstances by building resilience physically,

emotionally, spiritually and psychologically, using a Right’s-based framework, so they are able to realize their full

potential and contribute to the building of South Africa.”

Organizations Main Activities:

This project is not a quick fix answer to the needs of children; rather it is a long term investment in their future.

We develop the child holistically and sustainably to overcome not just the current situations they find themselves

confronting, but all the challenges that life has to present in the future.

Lawyers Against Abuse

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.

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.

best care

Numeric

Less than 3% of children who started school together in Grade 1 finished matric in 2017 with a solid understanding of mathematics and the skills required to access tertiary studies in maths and sciences. At Numeric, we believe that an intervention at the high school level is too late to stem the tide of drop-out and loss of confidence in this important subject. That is why our interventions focuses on the last year of primary school – our work allows more learners to leave primary school with a solid foundation in basic mathematics, enabling them to choose pure mathematics and be more successful in high school mathematics, thereby gaining access to tertiary studies.
