Our community strategy
We have dedicated partnerships with the following charities and not for profit organisations to channel our support
A safe house within Cognia’s immediate community in Cape Town, South Africa, for neglected children aged 6 months to 13 years. The Cognia team volunteer their time to spend with the children, organise fund raisers, and periodically make lunch boxes for the children as part of a feeding scheme.
A non-profit organisation in Cape Town, South Africa, that enables disadvantaged youth to pull themselves and each other out of poverty and into tertiary education or employment. We provide pro bono legal guidance and mentor final year learners, including career days where professionals from various industries share their knowledge on different career paths and accessing TedX Youth events.
A non-profit and public benefit organisation established in the Mfuleni community, situated in Cape Town, South Africa. Their various projects aim at promoting children’s rights, early childhood development and community involvement. We provide pro bono legal services, raise funds and Cognia team members mentor and train the staff in skills such as financial management.
