ALGOA CARES


Algoa Cares is our Corporate Social Investment programme. Algoa Cares was started in 1997 with the aim to support local non-profit organisations with their mission to help and empower those in need, especially the most vulnerable within our community. We use the power of radio to increase awareness, influence positive change and inspire the development of our broadcast area. Algoa Cares has three focus areas namely: Health and Welfare, Education and Skills Development, and the Environment and Sustainability. The initiative highlights star projects that model sustainability.
