Vuleka – meaning to Open
The RBPS Vuleka Trust is a non-profit organization that is about opening up educational opportunities to boys from disadvantaged communities. The Trust enables boys who have been denied access to a good education through financial disadvantage to attend Rondebosch Boys Preparatory School. But Vuleka is also about opening up the school, to help it to embrace the challenges of our new democracy and be a positive role player in the transformation of our society. Monies raised by the RBPS Vuleka Trust are therefore utilised for the payment, or part-payment, of school fees, uniforms,stationery, remedial and language lessons deemed necessary to enhance and uphold the dignity of pupils enrolled at RBPS whose families find themselves in marginalised and financially disadvantaged positions. This support has been invaluable in enabling the boys to feel integrated, and enabling the school to transform its learner population to better reflect South African society. The extremely positive feedback from teachers has highlighted the difference the Vuleka Trust is making in the lives of these pupils, their families and the school.

Solidarity Helping Hand was established in 1949 in response to the poverty crisis after the Second World War. Today, our Helping Hand service extends much further – from children to the elderly – with a specific focus on alleviating, preventing and breaking free from poverty. We believe the best way to do this is through training and skills transfer, with a particular focus on preventing children from falling into the poverty spiral. Helping Hand functions within the Solidarity movement as a non-profit company that generates its own funds.
A large part of Solidarity Helping Hand’s work is focused on relieving the suffering of vulnerable people. We believe that children, the disabled and the elderly should receive unconditional assistance. Although projects run by our more than 160 branches countrywide are dealing with this job exceptionally well, the feeling that more could be done always persists. Helping Hand is as strong as its communities and we need their ongoing support to help us maintain our goals.

The Bumble Bee Fund was founded to help families struggling with the cost of providing an environment and mobility equipment that would allow their children to live out their full potential. Aerodynamically the Bumble Bee shouldn’t be able to fly but the bee doesn’t know this, so it defies the odds and keeps on flying. Disabled children are often the same while not knowing what their limitations are, they defy the odds and exceed all expectations.
We would love you to sign up as a Bumble Bee Fund Rider for the 2019 Cape Town Cycle Tour. In 2018 we raised funds for various children in need including: Sipho and Bajongile who suffer from Cerebral Palsy, Zahria who suffers from Spastic Quadriplegia and Gabriel who has Spinal Muscular Atrophy.

Established in 1872, the Cape of Good Hope SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) is the founding society of the SPCA movement in South Africa and is the oldest animal welfare organisation in the country. A registered non-profit organisation (NPO 003-244) and Public Benefit Organisation (PBO 930004317), the society relies on the support of concerned individuals and corporates to continue operating.
We are affiliated to the Royal Society for the Protection of Animals (RSPCA) and are Executive Members of the National Council of SPCAs South Africa (NSPCA), and previously a member of the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) before it’s dissolution.
The Children’s Hospital Trust is an independent nonprofit organisation established in 1994 to raise funds to support specific projects and programmes to help advance child healthcare through the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital – the first stand-alone tertiary hospital, exclusively for children, in sub-Saharan Africa. The Trust raises funds for the upgrade and expansion of the Hospital’s buildings, the purchase of state-of-the-art medical equipment, new medical treatment programmes and funds the training of medical professionals across Africa – ensuring that the Hospital not only retains its world-class stature, but is able to continue providing life-changing and life-saving care for children. The Trust relies on donations in order to fund these needs. When you donate to the Trust, every cent goes towards funding projects and programmes that change children’s lives (and the lives of the people who love them.) The operational costs of the Trust are funded from an endowment, so your generous contributions are never used to cover administration costs.
