Business Partner Connect

Private companies in South Africa are renowned for their generosity in supporting diverse social programming and interventions. We believe that all businesses – from spaza shops to multinational corporations – have the ability to create positive, meaningful change in their communities.

The case for supporting She Conquers is simple: supporting South Africa’s youth in their fight to improve their wellbeing and economic independence means supporting the future of South Africa. She Conquers provides a medium through which businesses can do exactly that.

By bringing together an array of government, civil society, and community-based actors that serve youth across South Africa, She Conquers harnesses varied insight and experience that will effectively create change with and for South African youth.
