Johannesburg Heritage Foundation

Absa Joburg 10K believes in the rejuvenation of Johannesburg City, It therefore makes logical sense that we have partnered with the Joburg Heritage Foundation.

The Johannesburg Heritage Foundation is a non-profit organisation dedicated the exploration, documentation, protection and restoration of Johannesburg’s heritage. The Johannesburg Heritage Foundation’s Programmes include:


They provide world-class heritage education outside of the classroom environment. In 2019, the Education Programmes reach extended to 2,434 primary school children, 1,572 of whom attend non-fee paying schools and were either fully or partially sponsored by the Foundation.


The Foundation runs an exciting tour programme exploring the diverse and rich history of Johannesburg and surrounds ranging from the homes of rich and famous to the graveyards of pioneers, working class heroes,   baronets and scoundrels. Tours take place almost every weekend of the year and are led by volunteer tour leaders.


The Foundation’s Research Centre contains a treasure trove of data including valuation rolls, heritage impact assessments and records of plans which are being archived at Museum Africa. The Research Centre archives are largely digitized, but this is an ongoing process.




Through the generous assistance of private donors, the Johannesburg Heritage Foundation has been able to restore a number of Johannesburg’s most important buildings, including St Alban’s Church in Ferreirastown, the Lutheran Church in  Hillbrow, St Mary the Less in Jeppestown, James Mpanza House in Soweto, the stained glass windows in the Church of Peace, Hillbrow,  and, most recently,  the Church of St John the Divine in Belgravia, a very poor neighbourhood. The Foundation is working with the City Parks and  James Delaney  to improve The Wilds a public park with its wonderful collection of indigenous plants.

Blue Plaques

The Johannesburg Heritage Foundation has been responsible for erecting more than 150 blue plaques in many historic parts of the City which provide information to passersby and draw attention to the heritage significance of buildings and places.

Ensuring animals are happy, safe and healthy what we all at the Johannesburg SPCA dedicate ourselves. But we can only do the work by means of your support. Together we can make the world a better place for animals. We would like you to know that not only will your donation directly benefit the animals in our area but – through a sharing agreement between all SPCAs nationwide – a portion will be used in other, less fortunate areas to benefit animals over a wider area.

Reach for a dream

RFAD-logo-smallAbsa RUN YOUR CITY JOBURG 10K believes in making a community impact. To that end, we’ve partnered with the Reach For A Dream Foundation and ask all runners to consider a donation towards this inspirational organization.

For 28 years the Reach For A Dream Foundation has been able to fulfill the dreams of life-threatened children. No dream is too big or small. Reach For A Dream has always sought to inspire hope, courage and strength in the lives of children who need it most.

Fulfill a dream

As each life-threatened child fights for their life, the Reach For A Dream foundation creates magical dreams to alleviate the psychosocial burden of a life-threatening illness. Below are some stories from our dreamers.“Hennie is 5 years old and has Medullo Blastoma. She loves nature and she wants to be a farmer.”

“Athikule is a quiet young girl with big dreams.  Diagnosed with Leukemia at 3 years old her dream is to be a ballerina.”

Morati is a quiet young girl who loves to play. Diagnosed with Tetrology of Fallot at age 7 her dream is to have a life size toy house. She dreams of having friends come over and play with her in her house.”


What A Dream Means:

When a child is diagnosed with a life-threating illness like cancer, renal failure, or a blood disorder their whole life is turned upside down. After a diagnosis there are many financial, emotional and spiritual burdens that are placed on a child and their family. Having a terminal illness robs many children of their childhood as their illness usually requires difficult, painful and long treatments. Despite these stressful treatments, each child still lives for the present moment. RFAD creates magical dreams that inspire each child to have hope and courage when fighting for their life.

The potential of millions of young children is lost due to our inability to provide families access to quality play-based early childhood education programmes.  Cotlands exists to close the access gap by offering innovative programmes that promote play-based learning.  Through direct service delivery as well as in partnership with other organisations, these include:

  • Toy libraries and playgroups to reach marginalised children.
  • Nutritional, health and parental support for children attending Cotlands early learning playgroups.
  • Building capacity in NPOs and ECD centres to implement Cotlands play-based early learning programmes.
