The Gillitt Foundation
- Begun in the early 80’s by 3 friends wanting to do some good without their names being publicized.
- Running projects aimed at helping indviduals and businesses to reach their potential
At present The Gillitt Foundation’s focus is to complete setting up and to drive The Saunter. We run a feeding scheme to support families who lost their jobs due to lockdown and help feed families impacted by disasters, e.g. flood, Go 4 me 2, and we are re-starting Highway Hashtag, over shadowed earlier by The Saunter. Highway Hashtag will support and bring business into the Highway area. Profits from this project will be used for educational support in Maths and Science as well as wildlife conservation support, specifically rhino conservation in KZN.
The long term intention is for The Saunter to be set up as a non-profit organisation in its own right within 2 to 3 years of its completion and formal launch, and Highway Hashtag to become after a period of our support, a normal business, with a clause in its articles to stipulate that 25% of all profit made be used for charitable causes as above.
