DirectAxis staff are passionate about their communities. DirectAxis and FirstRand also match contributions of time or money with the purchase of gifts for our employee’s chosen organisations.

We also regularly host events at our Campus which involve activities like food-packing, the making up of comfort hampers, fundraising initiatives and awareness drives. Some of the drives we are involved in:

Turfhall Cheshire Home

We sent 100 staff volunteers to the Turfhall Cheshire Home for the physically disabled. They set to work cleaning the home, engaging the residents with games, pampering & quality time, kitchen duty & even entertainment. We are so proud of our staff, who consistently work hard to change lives in and outside of their day jobs.


gold Youth 

Volunteers from our Human Resources team conducted mock interviews with youth from our CSI partner, gold-youth, to prepare them for the world of work. We believe that organisations don't always need cash injections. We can make a major impact using our skills and talents to give others the power to build better lives.


Winter Drive

Our staff get involved in supporting the homeless. Most recently we packed over 1 000 comfort packs for the homeless and gave them to five shelters in the Western Cape. We’ve also donated blankets and tinned foods to various homeless shelters.

World Hunger Day

Packing meals for Rise Against Hunger is an annual event at the DirectAxis office. In 2017, we packed 20 800 meals – Scarra Ntubeni and Huw Joes of the DHL Western Province rugby team and Jack Parow, one of South Africa’s favourite artists, joined us and lent a hand too.

Take a Walk on the Caring Side

The DirectAxis Walk for Hunger took place on Sunday, 25 March 2018 at Kenilworth Racecourse.

With over 3 million children in South Africa going hungry daily, we were proud to partner with Rise Against Hunger and do our bit to create awareness of the work they do.

Rise Against Hunger (RAH) is an international organisation that distributes food and aid to the world’s most vulnerable, mobilising the necessary resources to end hunger.

DirectAxis Financial Services covered the costs of the event, ensuring that every cent donated by the public and every ticket fee went straight into purchasing meals.


Tekkie Tax and Casual Day

We get involved in supporting the Ocean View Association of Disabled Persons and DAWG in these two national fundraising initiatives.

Shine Literacy Workshop

The Family Literacy Workshop held in 2017 gave tips, practical ideas and new resources to enable parents to develop strategies and tools to help their children improve their literacy skills.

The Cableway Charity Challenge

DirectAxis athletes see how many times they can summit Table Mountain via Platteklip Gorge in support of the South African Education Project. We also enter a team into the Cape Town Cycle Tour annually.


As part of our commitment to literacy we gave books to the learners in our Shine Centres as well as the avid readers at Seaview Library. Our staff lovingly prepared 1 250 books for little book lovers. 

Sanitary products drive

We collected and donated over R5 000 worth of sanitary products to the Caring4Girls campaign. 


With over 3 million South African children still not having access to desks, either at school or at home, our staff have decided to chip away at the issue starting with over 120 bags donated to the children of the Durbanville farm schools. We endeavour to grow this number to all the children in these schools.

Food gardening

We paired up our staff with gold Youth and got our hands dirty at SEED in Mitchells Plain working in their community gardens.

School in a box

We raised money to purchase School in a Box for the learners at Arcadia Secondary. The project makes use of tablets and internet connectivity to present the school curriculum to learners using facilitators or self-learning versus the traditional classroom model.

Children’s homes

Our staff are passionate about children’s causes and we’ve been able to supply our volunteers with valuable equipment to help out the children’s homes they support, including Leliebloem and Christine Revell.


Through the FirstRand Foundation, our team has been able to assist many schools with:

  • Textbooks
  • Fencing
  • School values posters
  • Printer/Copier
  • Water Tanks
  • Electronic white boards
  • PA sound system
  • Bus shelter
