The Industry Compliance and Certification Authority of South Africa (ICCASA) is committed to social upliftment and community engagement and we aim to conduct meaningful business practices through supporting initiatives that benefit society and improve the quality of life in the very communities which we live and work in
The James 1:27 through the help of its community development partners such as ICCASA, has helped to set up a crèche and a recreational outside play space for children in the Zama-Zama informal settlement on the outskirts of Daspoort just west of Pretoria.
James 1:27 serves organisations that care for children: empowering care for orphans, vulnerable children and youth.
ICCASA’s support has covered the salary of the Trust’s care coordinator, who works with the children. We are very thankful for ICCASA’s commitment and contributions to community development and improving the quality of people’s lives within communities and society.
With ICCASA’s support through social upliftment initiatives and partnerships with the Trust, we have been able to make a tangible contribution to assisting the vulnerable and weak.
ICCASA’s investment in the Trust has helped our care coordinator Victoria, to continue her important work with the families. Additionally, ICCASA contributed towards one of our family members’ dream of studying community-based interventions at UNISA as a way of giving back to her own community.
Victoria was one of the first beneficiaries of ICCASA support and is now a care coordinator for the Trust. She looks after the needs of the families and assists them emotionally, psychologically and spiritually.
Grace Outreach Ministry Africa (GOMA) is a non-profit organisation dedicated to doing Kingdom work. This includes church planting, meeting the spiritual and physical needs of the widows, orphans and the poor, locally and in Africa, men’s restoration and empowerment ministry.
ICCASA has supported GOMA ministries by supporting to the upliftment of women in our communities through donating to the Women’s Camp ministries of GOMA.
Sisters in Christ Jesus (SICJ) ministry has a vision to feed the hungry, clothe the poor, take care of the widows and orphans and above all, to preach the Gospel of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Sisters in Christ Jesus Ministry is motivated by the biblical scripture of James 4:17 “therefore to him who knows to do good and does not do it, to him it is sin”.
ICCASA has taken hands and partners with SICJ in supporting the ministry’s work in alleviating poverty in our communities.
Their longstanding commitment and support to the ministry is helping to alleviate poverty in the surrounding communities that we serve. ICCASA has supported communities through sponsorships of training workshops for women to equip them in their important roles within our community.
ICCASA also supports the many initiatives such as the winter blanket drives, bible drives, food parcels and school shoe programme.
