Gender-based Violence initiatives

The DG Murray Trust Gender-based (GBV) Violence Iitiatives are dedicated to improving the lives of women in South Africa. These initiatives are a bold demonstration of effective strategies to combat the pervasive crisis of Gender-based Violence and Femicide (GBVF). Our focus extends beyond mere intervention; we strive to model innovative solutions while providing crucial support to address gender-based violence head-on.

Social Welfare Financing Reform

DGMT’s strategy aims to improve civil society’s access to funding through an improved financing approach of the national Department of Social Development (DSD). Since 2013, DGMT has worked with the DSD and National Treasury to develop the Sector Funding Policy (SFP) and its tools for implementation.

Legacy Programme

DGMT recognises the critical contribution of civil society and aims to support the sustainability of civil society organisations. The leadership of an organisation is intricately tied to its effectiveness and sustainability. This programme aims to enable organisations to manage leadership transitions effectively and mitigate the risks associated with change.

ACTIVATE! Change Drivers

ACTIVATE! is a network of young people, connected to each other and committed to innovating for the public good. Unlike many other youth leadership programmes, participants become Activators-for-life, with access to platforms and programmes designed to support their growth, collaboration and expand the influence of the network.

Zero-rating mobile e-services

The project aims to secure the zero-rating of Public Benefit Organisations’ (PBOs) Internet offerings. This will enable those who cannot afford data to access resources that improve their knowledge capital and ensure that they are not excluded from the pace of innovation.

Amplify Mobilise Change

Amplify Mobilise Change is a project initiated by DGMT to help South African civil society shift its thinking and develop more creative, impactful and efficient online communication and technology practices.

Innovation Fellowship

Creating space for young leaders and innovation. For South Africa to fulfil its potential, we need a vital and innovative civil society that is able to drive change. The DGMT Innovation Fellowship develops young leaders across South Africa who are working in the civil society sector.
