In response to the July looting that rocked the country, Rays of Hope joined forces with AlexBiz, a support network for businesses based in Alexandra Township, to raise funds for businesses that were directly affected. Many were left unable to trade and face a long journey of rebuilding their businesses. This added to the negative impact that the pandemic has already had on small businesses because of lockdown and the associated pressures faced by their customers. Rays of Hope has been working to help them overcome these hardships and get their businesses up and running again.

AlexBiz provides small businesses with access to skills development programmes and support in creating sustainable business ventures through financial literacy programmes, business etiquette classes and training, as well as workshops and business breakfasts that allow emerging entrepreneurs to network with other like-minded individuals.

Help Alex businesses get back on their feet by donating here, and use “AlexBiz” as your reference.
