Inyathelo in the Headlines

Nominate your philanthropy hero - 8 Jun 2012 - We Can Change

2012 Inyathelo Philanthropy Awards: Four weeks to go. Inyathelo: The South African Institute for Advancement invites you to nominate someone who you think deserves national recognition for all the good work they do. The annual Inyathelo Philanthropy Awards honour people who have used their personal funds to make an outstanding and lasting contribution to social change in South Africa.

This spirit of giving is reflected in the words of our 2011 Youth in Philanthropy awardee Kanchana Moodliar who started the ''Saris for Good Karma'' project in Durban, South Africa. "From not having anything, to having a little bit of something, has given them [the women working on her project] this power to be someone and to be recognised within their communities."
