about caw

CAW is a business partner of The Kamvalethu Foundation. Kamvalethu is a Non-Profit Organisation (NPO), Public Benefit Organisation (PBO) and Trust. We partner with some of the most exciting and promising projects in the education landscape in South Africa. This Trust also serves to secure ownership points in terms of BBB-EE legislation for our business partners.

We believe children should have access to a good education, regardless of where they live Having access to a basic quality education allows you to have a greater choice in your own life trajectory. Your abilities, not your location should determine your success.

Kamvalethu’s beneficiaries are all previously disadvantaged children, under the age of 18, residing in under resourced areas. Our business takes seriously the call for South Africa to be rebuilt and live out its potential.

About CAW's Social Responsibility

CAW’s corporate social responsibility is divided between focused projects and community based projects, with our intention to make a difference by supporting these projects that benefit historically disadvantaged sectors of our society.
We have aligned our CSR spend with our core business objectives, to meet the requirements of an increasingly strategic-focused corporate social responsibility approach for businesses in South Africa. This approach moves CSR out of the charitable domain into one in which true partnerships with beneficiaries bring about long-term sustainable development to the benefit of all.
