TFG consists of 20 leading retail brands with over 3 000 stores, 22 000 employees and serves more than 8.3 million customers worldwide.
As a leading lifestyle retailer, it is our responsible to give back to our communities both financially and in-kind. The concept of paying it forward is significant to us and has become part of TFG’s ethos. It is equally important to us that we uplift the communities that both our employees and customers reside within. In order to successfully implement CSI, we have aligned our strategy with both the UN Sustainability Goals as well as the National Develop Plan. Our objective is to support the goals relevant to our strategy such as quality education, zero hunger and clean & sanitation. We have adopted a holistic approach to all our projects so that they are sustainable which ultimately results in uplifting communities.
TFG’s contribution has been made possible through our CSI vision: creating opportunities for upliftment by leading sustainable developments. We aim to “educate to empower (E2E)” across educational levels starting from Early Childhood Development (ECD) to Post School education. This strategy will allow us to make a meaningful contribution and significantly impact our communities. A strong focus has been placed on developing individuals from an early age by providing them with the necessary tools order to succeed. Educate to empower acts as an enabler to afford beneficiaries the opportunities to become employable within today’s competitive environment.
TFG contributes in one way or another to many CSI projects across Africa and involvement in these projects grows annually because doing good never goes out of fashion!
