In keeping with the companies Distinctive Value Chain, projects that come under one or more of the following areas are considered for funding:
Education; Early Childhood and Primary
Enabling young children to have a sound foundation in their education is seen as vital in the development of any community. It is for this reason that a large number of early childhood institutions and primary schools receive funding under the KRF to help develop their activities.
Supporting capacity building means that we are developing the potential for organisations and individuals in a community to respond to the needs they identify around them. This is an important element in enabling organisations to become more self-reliant and sustainable.
Education; Skills Training
Many communities have come to realise that enabling individuals to develop skills which are relevant to the market place will help to reduce the problem of unemployment. In order for training programmes to maintain their relevance, they need to be equipped with suitable, modern equipment and the KRF is often approached for help in this area.
Environment and Shelter;
Many inner-city communities suffer from environmental problems, such as poor housing and a lack of usable pubic spaces. These problems contribute to negative feelings among the residents towards their community and an overall feeling of powerlessness to change anything. The KRF supports groups in their efforts to counter these problems through enabling change in the physical environment.
Support for Micro-Enterprise;
Inner-city communities experience high levels of unemployment and underemployment. Through supporting micro-enterprise projects, we are enabling these communities to start to address this problem and to build better lives for community members and their families.
