Masisizane 10th Year Celebration


As we approach the 10th anniversary of the Masisizane Fund in 2017, we would like to capture the road the Fund has travelled and demonstrate the legacy it is creating as it continues to grow. We are also looking forward to a meaningful celebration in July 2017, following a decade of job creation, boosting economic growth and achieving other significant goals.
