ChildLife Foundation

General Motors South Africa we have made a strong commitment towards the upliftment of disadvantaged communities through key initiatives focused on education, one of the most critical areas of need in South Africa. The company not only focuses on fulfilling our business objectives but constantly seeks out ways in which we can actively contribute and give back to the community.
Since 2004 GMSA and the GMSA Foundation have contributed over R150 million towards addressing the critical problems within education in South Africa. During the past 8 years, the company has invested over R18 million in bursary and scholarships. By lending a helping hand, we strive to improve the lives and conditions of the people that will become the future entrepreneurs and leaders of our country.
The GM Childlife Foundation’s aim is to provide a channel for our dealerships and their staff members throughout South Africa to be able to identify and support local, sustainable, community projects that will impact positively on children’s lives. With these projects, the staff at the respective dealerships become actively involved with the projects they have embraced. The General Motors Childlife Foundation continues to grow from strength to strength and it has really been heartening to see the positive impact that our Authorised General Motors dealerships in South Africa have made in their local communities since the Foundation’s inception in 2008.

Little Lambs

Little Lambs is a Non-profit organisation (NPO )that is committed to reduce child poverty, reduce chronic hunger and to develop hope in the hearts of children in our midst. Little Lambs assists in relieving the extreme poverty and suffering that is experienced in a Cape Town Township. Everyday people are diagnosed with HIV and TB. This means that most of the children and babies Little Lambs deal with are either infected or affected by HIV and TB or orphaned due to the parents dying of the AIDS virus. Some of these children have been abused and abandoned

Amy Biehl Foundation

REEDS Motor Group is an active sponsor and friend of the Amy Biehl Foundation. Over the years the Foundation has flourished in its mission to Weave a Barrier Against Violence by emphasizing social, cultural and economic empowerment through its programmes.
Currently, two of the young men who were convicted of Amy’s murder and granted amnesty, work for the Foundation to make these programmes a success. They are a living embodiment of the values, such as forgiveness, reconciliation and tolerance, which we strive to teach the youth of Cape Town through our work.

Beautiful Gate Ministry

Beautiful Gate Ministry is an interdenominational Christian organisation providing care and support to vulnerable children and families. We believe that the best place for each child is within a family, and that the best way to support families is to enable their community to provide support.
In South Africa, our community-based ministry is situated on the outskirts of Cape Town, in the informal area of Lower Crossroads. Here we aim to restore the capacity of the community and of families to care for their children or, where this is not possible, to find alternative families. In this regard, Beautiful Gate has emerged as a trustworthy partner to the local community and to other NGO’s as well as government in addressing issues of HIV/AIDS and its impact on children, families and the community.

Tygerberg Mountain Bike Club

The Club was officially constituted in 1997 and has been run by various enthusiasts over the years. It reached its previous largest size around 2005/6 when it had nearly 200 members and was given use of the Majik Forest trails for as long as it remained active. It is obligated through an old agreement with the De-Grendel Sub-Council to maintain these trails.
The Majik Forest is an area of woodland and derelict vineland situated above the Van Riebeeckshof Shopping Centre, bordered now by the Oude Westhof estate on one side and D’Aria/Altydgedacht vineyards on the other. Access is from an entrance off the Jip de Jager extension road that leads to the Vineyard Development, or from Oude Westhof. The whole area is less than 12 hectares, and it is the ONLY trail in the Northern Suburbs, an area that is home to perhaps 300,000 people or more. Mountain bikers have been using the trails there for the last 17 years, but as housing has grown up around it, more and more walkers and runners use them too.
The idea for a Durbanville Hills trail network germinated after TmtbC was invited to present ideas to the Tygerberg Renosterveld Conservancy (TRC) at its AGM in Mar 2008.The TRC was looking for ways to raise funds to preserve, maintain and grow the preciously small (only 4% remains of the original) areas of Renosterveld remaining in the Southern end of the Western Cape. The idea that mountain bikers would ‘pay to play’ was seen as a key factor in opening up areas of unused farmland for the benefit of all.

The organisation has grown from humble beginnings. Everything started with Songo Fipaza’s dream to uplift Kayamandi, the community that he has lived in for numerous years of his life and where he has been working hard to bring about change for his community.
Social issues exist in multitudes in Kayamandi, however, Songo Fipaza has recognised the value in creating a community for children and a safe place for them to grow and develop. It is Songo’s dream to provide his children with the possibility to go out and achieve their dreams, no matter how big or small, providing opportunities that have not been available to his community. His goals are significant: to look after and protect our children and to provide them with opportunities as all children should have the belief that anything is possible.
