Who funds Gift of the Givers?

South Africans! We don’t have international funders! 99.9% of the money is from ordinary South Africans… South Africa is one of the most generous nations on Earth… People still dig into their pockets… Even for international projects… In 2011 when we responded to the famine in Somalia… A poor school in Orange Farm – the kids don’t have shoes, they don’t have lunch, they don’t have a jersey in winter – gave us R41 000…

Dr Imtiaz Sooliman, founder - Gift of the Givers
