Foundation or by our agents. Donations of old computers, printers and
primary school books will be most welcomed and if you can assist,

GIVERS GAIN PROJECT - RAPE CRISIS CENTRE
by one of our business partners, Greyvensteins Attorneys, this is an
ongoing charity drive targeting various beneficiaries through a series
of events and activities each year. As Property Network, our charity organisation we support through this
initiative, is the Rape Crisis Centre in Port Elizabeth.
We do not need to emphasise the massive amount of finance as well as
mobilisation and knowledge that is required around this issue and we
are proud to be associated in being part of the prevention of and
assistance to women who suffer physical
and mental harm from this despicable crime.
One of the main beeds at the moment is the furnishing of their new 14
bed shelter for rape victimes. This means supplying everything a home
will need - beds, cutlery, an iron, a kettle, bedding and eveything
else that goes into making a home liveable. If you would like to contribute any item please go here to see what is still needed and make your pledge.
For those who would like to offer any assistance for this worthy cause and
volunteer in any way please contact our agents who are heading up this cause :

GUARD CHESS FOUNDATION
foundation develops training materials for free use by coaches and
parents and provides a much needed resource. This is of particular
value to our poorer communities where the standard books and videos are
beyond their financial means.
Chess is well known as a major
contributor to both the childs education as well as social and holistic
development and we feel our involvement plays a part in the building of
a new, better South Africa.
Property Network sponsors the
development of the materials as well as printing and distribution, as
well as other chess related matter
