Glassock and Associates supports a number of worthy causes as part of our contribution towards building and empowering underprivileged communities in South Africa.

One of the organisations that we support is the Siyazigabisa Home of Hope, a children’s home in Tembisa, Gauteng. Around 20 children live in the home, with a further 80 being supported by its activities in the community.

  • In 2013 Glassock and Associates donated blankets, electricity vouchers and books to the home. Read more here.
  • In July 2012, the Glassock and Associates team travelled to Siyazigabisa to transform an unused office space into a new playroom for the children. Read more about the initiative here.

We also support The Hope Factory, a South African Institute of Chartered Accountants (SAICA) enterprise development initiative.

The Hope Factory aims to empower every South African to be financially stable. This includes educating people from previously disadvantaged backgrounds in order to help them become business-savvy and financially productive, as well as creating opportunities for them to gain practical experience in a business environment and acquire the necessary entrepreneurial, technical and life skills needed for them to be successful in their pursuits.

Glassock believes in sustainability and empowering the people of South Africa towards building a better future, as well as harnessing and nurturing local talent. This is why we support The Hope Factory and its brave job creation initiative.

We are also proud contributors to the Junxion Training PBO as its socio-economic development initiative, helping to better the skills and uplift the community of Diepsloot, north of Johannesburg. The Junxion Training PBO has recently relocated to a new community centre premises. Here, Diepsloot community members receive training in various areas, including computer literacy.
