The forgood Blog is here to help you become an active (or even more active) social citizen by providing you with tips, resources and stories that will inspire you to be the best citizen you can be. We’ve been collecting the know-how on volunteering for years, have access to some of the best Causes in South Africa and work with the most amazing Volunteers in the world!
This is our journey to build a volunteering culture in the developing world. We cannot sit back and wait for governments to solve our problems – we need to get involved. We need to build our country together!
We provide our Volunteers with incredible opportunities to give back the way they want to – by enabling skills-based volunteering opportunities, goods donations and funding experiences.
Forgood Volunteers have access to a network of over 400 high quality, high impact and trustworthy Causes located throughout South Africa. Every day we create meaningful connections and facilitate social impact. Our technology then allows us to publish, track, and measure this incredible ecosystem to continuously monitor and enhance the experience for both the Volunteers and Causes we work with.
“We create giving experiences. Why? The rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer. There are a bunch of organisations in the middle, losing the battle to close this gap. We care about solving this problem.”
At forgood, we’re fighting this global imbalance by connecting the resources of the empowered to the needs of the dis-empowered. We’re doing this by providing a technology platform to both the public and corporate South Africa that creates efficient, relevant, and magical connections.
