Gift of the Givers Education initiatives boosted by Tom Tom

Construction of quality classrooms, sanitation, water provision, IT, libraries, food parcels, feeding schemes, counselling, life skills, stationery, sports, uniforms, entrepreneurship, tutoring, bursaries and special schools are areas that require intervention to provide care and boost the quality of education in South Africa. Gift of the Givers has spent R190 million in these and many other areas over the years.

Tom Tom has intervened with its CSI spend. For every pair of Tom Tom sold Gift of the Givers will receive R2, in addition, substantial cash contributions and shoes in kind for learners will be sponsored yearly. Tom Tom, the combined creation of Ntabi Masenya (leisure shoe designer) and Shiraz Jeewa (footwear supplier), each with 20 years experience in the fashion business, is a sneaker that addresses the aspiration of young people wanting to look hip, trendy and fashionable, yet enjoying the comfort and class of designer brands at a fraction of the cost.

Gift of the Givers and Tom Tom invite you to the signing of this unique partnership at Republic 94, 94 Juta Street, Braamfontein, Johannesburg, where chain stores and independents, fashion and mainstream media will be in attendance. The event takes place on Tuesday, 14 August, at 2pm. RSVP stating numbers by email to sooliman@giftofthegivers.org for catering purposes.
