INTRODUCTION TO THE ISIPANI FOUNDATION

Welcome to ISIPANI FOUNDATION, where we lay the foundation for a stronger construction sector.   We are a dedicated foundation committed to advancing and empowering the construction industry through innovative initiatives, strategic partnerships, and impactful programs.

As the backbone of economic growth and development, the construction sector plays a pivotal role in shaping our communities and infrastructure. At ISIPANI FOUNDATION, we recognize the immense potential of this industry and aim to foster its growth and sustainability.

The ISIPANI FOUNDATION was founded in 2014 as a non-profit company and have an effective shareholding of 15% in Isipani Construction company.  The ISIPANI FOUNDATION functions as a non-profit company whose aim is to advance socio-economic improvement of predominantly previously disadvantage individual beneficiaries through various public benefit activities.

Such public benefit activities include:

  1. Infrastructure development projects to address needs in education provision.
  2. Infrastructure development projects to provide healthcare services to poor and needy persons.
  3. Enterprise and entrepreneurship development through support to emerging micro enterprises in the construction sector.
  4. Skills development training for unemployed persons with the purpose of enabling them to obtain employment within the construction sector.
  5. The Foundation may also become involved in environmental initiatives such as rehabilitation and protection of indigenous flora and fauna, as well as education projects to raise awareness of the need for conservation; and
  6. The provision of funds, assets, services, or other resources by way of donation to a public benefit organisation or body carrying on public benefit activities.

At the ISIPANI FOUNDATION, we firmly believe in the power of collaboration. We aim to forge strategic partnerships with industry leaders, academic institutions, governmental bodies, and other organizations to leverage collective expertise and resources. Through these collaborations, we aim to develop and implement impactful projects that address critical issues and drive positive change within the construction sector and society.

Our website serves as a hub of information, resources, and opportunities for all communities in need to reach out to us for support but also for construction industry stakeholders to collaborate with us.  Any contribution towards ISIPANI FOUNDATION will be recognised as Socio – Economic Development contribution in terms of the BBBEE codes of Good Practice.  The contribution will also be tax deductible in the hands of donors in terms of and subject to the limitations prescribed in section 18A of the Income Tax Act of 1962.
