Simanye Trust

The Simanye Trust’s mission is to develop and implement sustainable, nation-wide and holistic solutions for communities, businesses and individuals in order to develop skills and businesses in a way that addresses the root causes of major challenges facing South Africa. We aim to do this through a focus on innovative social business models – which are businesses that generate a profit and are thus self-sustaining in the long term while also providing an invaluable social impact.

Simanye Trust pools funds from our donors in exchange for Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment points as part of South Africa’s empowerment and transformation policies and turns the funding that typically would be wasted on once-off unsustainable initiatives, into a pooled effort to create real change in the country.
