1st for Women Foundation

The 1st for Women Foundation was established in 2005 with one objective: to uplift and empower the women of South Africa. To date, the Foundation has donated over R40 million to a number of women-related civil society organisations that focus on two main causes: gender-based violence and cervical cancer. Thanks to our customers who donate a portion of their monthly insurance premium to the Foundation, we have made a tangible and sustainable difference to the lives of thousands of South African women. This difference is testament to the collective power of women.

In revising its strategy over the past year, the main strategic goal is to contribute towards the reduction and ultimately ending of all incidences of gender based violence(GBV). The First for Women Foundation sought to focus on a holistic approach towards GBV with efforts falling on preventative measures while treating the community as an ecosystem.
