Finances

The Intsika Trust provides a link between those who wish to support people affected by HIV/AIDS, particularly in South Africa, and the grassroots projects fulfilling this purpose.

Who we fund

The Intika Trust makes grants directly to organisations and projects within the framework of the Trust Deed in the areas of:

  • The relief of poverty, sickness and distress. e.g orphanages, hospice care
  • The preservation and protection of health e.g programmes to prevent mother-to-child transmission
  • The advancement of education e.g cdu-care centers, HIV/AIDS education

We are especially keen to support small start-up projects that find it difficult to raise funds from bigger grant making bodies.
