Air Select Cares
Air Select are proud donor partners with Shanduka black umbrella’s and The Children’s Hospital trust.
Shanduka Black Umbrellas is a non-profit enterprise development incubation organisation partnering with the private sector, government and civil society to address the low levels of entrepreneurship and high failure rate of 100% black owned emerging businesses in South Africa.
The programme focuses on promoting entrepreneurship as a desirable economic path and nurturing 100% black-owned businesses in the critical first three years of their existence through the provision of nationwide incubators.
The advancement of black entrepreneurs and small business development is at the heart of the Shanduka Black Umbrellas programme. It is a multi-stakeholder collaboration with the common purpose of achieving economic and social change through action, inspiration and support. In order to create a sustainable programme to harness and strengthen South Africa’s black entrepreneurs, Shanduka Black Umbrellas works through a platform of co-operation between civil society, the private sector and government so that the correct resources, skills development, mentoring and access to markets are in place to support development at all levels.
The work that Shanduka Black Umbrellas are doing is seminal in terms of the future of the country.
THE CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL TRUST
The Children’s Hospital Trust was established in 1994 to fundraise for the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital – the largest stand-alone tertiary hospital in sub-Saharan Africa, dedicated entirely to children. The Trust is an independent, non-profit organisation that relies on the benevolence of donors to realise its aims.
In 2011 the Trust expanded its fundraising reach beyond the Hospital’s doors to impact more broadly on the quality of healthcare provided to children at other levels of the health services
