Charity profile

The Southern Africa Trust believes that it is possible to overcome poverty in our region if the real experience and voices of the poor shape what is done to overcome poverty.

The Trust seeks out innovative and effective initiatives that address poverty in new ways across the southern Africa region and ensures that funds are provided to support these initiatives.

The Trust has over 100 partner organisations in southern Africa that are committed to addressing the root causes of poverty by making policies work better for the millions of poor people in southern Africa. This is done in two ways.

  1. We support partner organisations to do their work better by learning more about what kinds of interventions work better and what strategies don’t work; and
  2. We give money to them to finance their work, so that lasting solutions can be found to overcome poverty.

All our grant-making is managed according to publicly declared policies and strict principles, values, and rules of good corporate governance.

Give now and help the Southern Africa Trust to do more to create lasting change in the lives of people living in poverty. Your individual contribution will make a big difference to address the root causes of poverty.

The Southern Africa Trust is an independent non-profit agency registered as a Trust and recognised as a public benefit organisation in South Africa. For more information please click here.
