CSI Initiatives

Smart Life provides funds to the ASISA Foundation which is an initiative that delivers effective and objective financial literacy and micro-enterprise development programmes to South Africa’s most vulnerable groups.

The company is, in addition to the above, an investor in the ASISA Enterprise and Development Fund which is committed to creating sustainable shared value for the funders, enterprises and nation by investing in the growth of small and medium enterprises through an innovative combination of tailored business acceleration and investment support.

Smart Life supports Roundabout Water Solutions, a non-profit initiative that provides a niche solution (known as PlayPumps) to the problem of providing clean drinking water in impoverished rural communities.

We further support Kingsway Christian School that provides education to the children of the Zandspruit Informal Settlement and the Thandanani House of Refuge which was established to give hope to the lives of abandoned, abused, orphaned and neglected children. The house currently cares for children from the Zandspruit community who are in need of shelter and protection from abuse, neglect and abandonment.
