Get your Section 18A tax certificate – and claim your benefit from SARS – by making a donation to Siyabonga Africa now, before the the tax year ends on 28 February.

Apart from tax savings, a contribution to Siyabonga Africa also boosts your company's BBBEE scorecard in three crucial pillars: Enterprise and Supplier Development (ESD), Socio-Economic Development (SED) and Skills Development.

With a possible 40 points involved, ESD has become the main focus of many companies looking for a competitive BBBEE score, and making a donation to Siyabonga Africa is a fast, easy way to maximise your score.

But that's not all.

You also have a real opportunity to change someone's life for the better, and contribute to the task of building a strong, productive South Africa.

Because your contribution could pay for someone like Daniel Mboniswa to attend one of our life-changing courses, and gain the skills they need to start their own successful businesses.

Daniel, an unemployed man who attended our course in Bread and Confectionary Baking, is now the proud owner of a thriving, registered bakery. He not only has a reliable income and renewed self esteem, he's also created jobs for his wife, two sons and a local woman – and he's now saving up for a commercial oven to expand his business even further.

This is how Siyabonga Africa is getting South Africa working – and how incredible it is to think that YOU could start another ‘Daniel’ on the road to self sufficiency.

Last year, we trained over 1 000 people in baking and food preparation, egg farming, vegetable gardening, computer literacy and life skills.

Your donation of R500, R1000, R5000 or any amount will enable us to train more people in the year ahead, and help turn the tide of unemployment that’s crippling our country.

All this plus tax savings and BBBEE points! Get more information on how your company could benefit or email Jennifer Reuben. Or use the form below to make your contribution now.

Daniel is now the owner of a successful, registered bakery.
