Everything You Need To Know About Our Community Projects

Corporate Social Responsibility

Over many years, we have built relationships with a number of individuals and organizations involved with Government Grants and Funding projects. Our management team has assisted entrepreneurs and new business owners to plan new ventures, prepare Business Plans and secure funding.

We have provided a range of services including Mentorship, Accounting, Human Resources and Strategic Planning. Our involvement can also take the form of helping an aspiring entrepreneur realize their dream, becoming a Partner in a new enterprise or providing start-up capital as an angel investor. We especially look for opportunities where the needs of all parties are served, which create employment, provide education and ultimately deliver benefits to the wider community.

We believe that “If you can dream it, you can do it”. Every year, we donate 10% of our net profits to social projects. The founding Partners of Equitos Group believe that mental and physical health are the cornerstones of overall well-being and happiness. We have provided support for care home facilities in the Western Cape, child abuse rehabilitation centres and NGOs, whose specific focus is on mental health, psychological and psychiatric care.

Our team provides pro bono volunteering in these areas, in addition to funding projects which positively impact the lives of our community.

Projects

National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI)


Sea Rescue is the charity that saves lives on South African waters. The National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) is run by over 1 000 highly skilled, unpaid volunteers who are on standby day and night throughout the year. Donations and sponsorships cover the annual running cost of R73.4m. The NSRI education arm, called WaterWise Academy, teaches children what to do in an emergency and gives them the confidence to initiate basic bystander CPR while they wait for the ambulance to arrive. The WaterWise Academy targets disadvantaged youth, because statistically they are the most at risk.

Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA)


Over the past 143 years, the Cape of Good Hope SPCA has diligently carried out our mission to prevent cruelty to animals. This is done through education, law enforcement, veterinary care services (operating an animal hospital, and four mobile clinics serving impoverished communities), an Animal Care Centre, Horse Care Unit, and Wildlife Facility. Last year alone, we sterilised over 5000 animals, reducing the region’s animal over-population problem, provided primary veterinary care to thousands of animals, re-homed over 800 companion animals and responded to thousands of reports of animal cruelty.
