our kids of the cape

The Our Kids of the Cape Fund, social investment initiative, is a Non-Profit Organization 089-031-NPO registered with the Department of Social Development. A committee, comprising of Hotel Employees, who have been elected by colleagues from their respective hotels, oversees the running of the social investment initiative.

Funds are raised by the hotel guests, who are asked to add a small donation to their account, which is then matched by the hotels. This initiative assists local children's community projects in the greater Cape Town area.
Contact Alison Kranenburg for more information on the initiative: t 021 657 4500 / e kotc@vineyard.co.za
