NMG Charity Challenge 2021

NMG is a global advisory and intermediary firm focused exclusively on the financial services sector with a 29+ year association with South Africa.

The Charity Challenge is an annual fundraising event driven by NMG employees. For three months (June to August), employees across the NMG Group participate in sports, run charity auctions, volunteers at local communities to raise funds for the local South African charities. 

And for all fundraising efforts and all donations made, NMG will match every dollar, pound, euro, rand raised, doubling the value of your donation.

The NMG community across the globe recognises the enormous challenges South Africa faces. Each year, funds raised through Charity Challenge are presented to organisations that make a difference in children’s lives. The yearly contribution from NMG  provides a welcome respite from the constant financial struggles these organisations face to survive and thrive.

It also gives momentum for the year that lies ahead.  The charities NMG currently supports include:

Tembisa Child Welfare started out in 1986 in subsistence form, in fabricated buildings and railway containers housing local children who were either lost or abandoned. Through the support of NMG and other sponsors, Tembisa now houses over 100 children between the ages of one month and 20 years old in two centres in Tembisa. The organisation also provides employment to almost 100 residents and has established several small businesses such as baking, garment-making and disposable diaper manufacturing to supplement fundraising and service the local community. Tembisa Child Welfare has given a generation of orphans and vulnerable children a fighting chance in life.

Uviwe keeps the child’s best interest and well-being at the core of all decisions.Their programmes are implemented at individual child, family and community level to achieve our ultimate goal, i.e. “To build communities fit to raise every one of its children. They work on a preventative level to prevent crime, abuse and neglect of vulnerable children. Visit Uviwe’s YouTube channel to watch the stories they have to tell.

Elundini Educare was founded and opened in 2008 to meet the physical and emotional needs of mentally and physically challenged children in the Du Noon, Tableview and Joe Slovo areas. Elundini provides a safe, stimulating and nurturing environment to over 65 young forgotten souls between the ages of 18 months to 18 years old. Most of the disabled children, all too often stigmatised by society and cowered into silence, now radiate confidence and happiness. In 2013, NMG donated the funds to enable Elundini to buy and expand the land they were on. Previously, they did not own their own land which made fundraising and registration with organisations such as the Department of Social Development almost impossible.

Thanda empowers people to create a positive change. Their holistic approach to community development involves local resources and talent to develop sustainable solutions, with core programming centered around: early childhood development, after-school education, creative learning training and organic farming. Through these programmes, Thanda aims to break the cycle of generational poverty that exists in rural areas of South Africa by empowering people with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to make positive contributions to their communities.
