TFG has chosen to partner with SOS Children’s Villages in the work we are doing in Africa. By partnering with one organisation that delivers to all the countries we operate in we are able to ensure consistency, scale & impact. The countries we have chosen to work in all have TFG stores. Our vision is to empower the communities in which we work hence our investment into these countries.
SOS Children's Villages has an international footprint and have been in existence for 70 years. They are active in 135 countries. Their mission is to assist children through alternative care, family strengthening, schools, health centres, and other community-based work. SOS Children’s Villages will serve as TFG’s hands and feet in the countries we operate in.
In order to successfully implement CSI, we have aligned our strategy with the UN Sustainability Goals.Our objective is to support the goals relevant to our strategy such as decent work and economic growth (Goal 8) and quality education (Goal 4).
Since 2016, TFG has partnered with SOS Children’s Villages in Namibia, Zambia and Botswana. Over the last 3 years we have made an investment of R2.1 million investment, impacting a total of 1 100 beneficiaries.
This partnership has now been extended to include Lesotho and Swaziland.
