Donations given to two charitable organizations

On July 22, 2019, the Consul General gave a donation of ZAR 18510 (1194 euros) shared equally between two local charities, la Société Française de Bienfaisance de Johannesburg and Valued Citizen.


These donations were made possible thanks to the generosity of the participants in the lottery held on the occasion of the celebration of our National Day, July 12 at the Johannesburg Country Club.

The French Society of Charity of Johannesburg (SFBJ), founded in 1898, is currently chaired by Mrs. Hélène BEZUIDENHOUDT. It is a relay of the Consulate General in social action. You are encouraged, in the name of solidarity to our elders and our compatriots in difficulty, to help the SFBJ either by donations or by personally engaging in its support actions. To become a member of the association or to obtain more information, you are invited to send your messages to the address or to consult the website

Valued Citizens Initiative is a non-governmental organisation founded in 2001 to answer the request of the Gauteng Department of Education to develop citizenship education in public schools.
Focused on self-development, citizenship education and leadership principles in public schools from Grade 4 to Grade 12, Valued Citizens Initiative offers a holistic approach to school communities working with learners and School Management Teams, educators, parents, and social workers as the pillars of our society.
