Algoa cares is our corporate social investment programme. Algoa cares was started in 1997 with the aim of supporting local non-profit organisations in their mission to help and empower those in need, especially the most vulnerable within our community. We use the power of radio to increase awareness, influence positive change and inspire those in our broadcast area. Algoa cares has three focus areas namely: health and welfare, education and skills development, and the environment and sustainability. The initiative highlights successful projects that create sustainability within vulnerable communities.

1. Cares on-air

Mio Khondleka interviews a representative from a different charity every Wednesday between 12h30 and 13h00 to raise awareness about their non-profit organisation. To apply for an interview, simply complete the online application form below.

2. Cares promotional support

Community and fundraising events/initiatives can be promoted on-air and online via the what’s happening feature.
