Being part of the change you want to see?
As part of our Donate for Good journey, we reached out to Thandulwazi Academy, an organization that aids and equips school learners and educators to contribute to South African education.
For the first time, we’ll be including NotInMyName International, one of South Africa’s leading civil society organizations, on our platform. With this, INVSTRs will be able to invest while lending a hand to the organization, as they continue to make a bigger impact in our society.
