It’s a win-win for our charities

Constantia Insurance

At the end of last year, we advised our partners that because of the tough economic conditions experienced by many South Africans, we were redirecting our year-end partner gift budget to support two charities:

The Unlimited Child and Ethembeni Place of Hope.

We invited our partners to select their preferred charity and the contribution would be split according to the proportion of nominations received. The results are in and the split is 49% and 51%. With such a close outcome, we have decided to rather divide the allocation exactly in two.

After discussions with Ethembeni, their contribution will be used for warm clothing for the children, in preparation for the winter months ahead. The contribution to The Unlimited Child will be channelled into their Early Childhood Development (ECD) programme and we are in the process of identifying which regions to focus on.

A big thank you to all who made a nomination and helped us make a difference.

Below is a recap of the two charities:


Ethembeni is a non-profit organisation dedicated to community upliftment through school feeding programmes, community care, skills development, and emotional and spiritual support.

Constantia’s involvement with Ethembeni began in 2018 where, through a donation, Ethembeni managed to start a new feeding station coupled with an existing Early Childhood Development programme, in association with Lego SA. This took place in Kromdraai – a small community west of Ruimsig with approximately 400 families and 500 preschool and primary school children. The initial and subsequent donations have helped enable hot meals consisting of bread and soup, to be served each day, primarily to the children.

The Unlimited Child

The Unlimited Child is a leading Early Childhood Development (ECD) and skills development non-profit and public-based organisation with a national footprint.

The focus of The Unlimited Child is to help ensure that young children between the ages of 0-5 years have access to quality, inclusive, equitable and sustainable childhood education, so that they can develop their full education and personal potential. The Unlimited Child works with partners to identify and setup ECD centres and their model includes the provision of quality curriculum-based training to practitioners, resourcing ECD centres and ongoing mentoring and support.
