Just Grace
& B-BBEE

OUR APPROACH

Just Grace has a variety of ways in which a firm can obtain points towards its B-BBEE scorecard.

Many organisations believe that only Socio-economic Development points can be obtained by supporting
NGOs/NPOs.

 

This is not correct - there are in a fact a number of ways in which an entity can achieve their B-BBEE points
and contribute to an NGO/NPO at the same time.

We, therefore, encourage you to explore these opportunities and join us in our mission of uplifting the community of Langa.

Overview

We have included a broad overview of the opportunities.
A more detailed overview of each element is then given in the annexures that follow.

Ownership

By giving Just Grace equity in your business, you will attract the 25 points (QSE) and 25 points (Generic)
A QSE or EME which is at least 51% Black-owned qualifies for Level Two B-BBEE recognition level.
A QSE or EME which is 100% Black-owned qualifies for Level 1 B-BBEE recognition level.

Skills Development

You are able to contribute financially towards:
- Salaries and wages of interns at Just Grace
- Informal training to be provided to your staff

Partnership opportunities

Partnership opportunities

Just Grace is looking to start a (Pty) Ltd company that would be classified as an empowering supplier and a beneficiary entity.

This would allow entities to support Just Grace (Pty) Ltd through their B-BBEE ESD spend. This would provide much needed services to Just Grace NPC (transport, food, stationery) and at the same time uplift the beneficiary owners of Just Grace (Pty Ltd.

If you would like to explore this partnership, please contact us for more information.

Socio-Economic Development

Target: 1% of NPAT
Contributions to Just Grace will be fully claimable as Just Grace has beneficiaries that are greater than 75% black.

We ask that you would contact us should you wish to explore the possibility of Just Grace forming part of
your B-BBEE strategy. In this way, we can work together to see the most efficient and effective way for us
to partner together in this regard.

Just Grace is a non-profit company with the overarching objective of poverty alleviation in Langa, Cape Town.
