Change a Life with WUCT

 In partnership with GiveSA, WUCT challenges you to Change a Life with your donation to WUCT, starting on the International Day of Giving


Give SA is a collaboration of connectors wanting to see, amongst other things, every South African giving whatever they can to organisations on the frontline of development.

South Africa is a giving nation, whether they have a lot to give or just a few coins to spare. By giving to non profit and community organisation across South Africa, you can help to transform this country, one donation at a time.  Click here to download the  Give SA MANIFESTO
