The HeadStart Trust Succeeds in GlobalGiving’s Accelerator, Becomes Recognised Partner of GlobalGiving


The Headstart Trust has graduated from the GlobalGiving Accelerator program, gaining entry into the GlobalGiving marketplace and becoming a recognized partner of GlobalGiving. As part of the Accelerator, The Headstart Trust successfully raised $5,377 from 50 unique individual donors to support their project, “COVID-19 Rural Food Relief – Cape Agulhas region.”

“We’re thrilled to have The Headstart Trust as part of our community. The Headstart Trust has met our rigorous vetting standards for trust and community support, and we’re committed to providing tools, training, and support as they learn, grow and become more effective,” said Alix Guerrier, CEO of GlobalGiving. “GlobalGiving donors value the opportunity to support nonprofits like The Headstart Trust, knowing that they’ll get regular updates about how their donations are put to work.”

“The COVID-19 lockdown in South Africa has left a large portion of our population without any means of income, very few have access to social grants and foreign nationals have no support from government institutions. The HeadStart Trust is supporting already established community initiatives in the Cape Agulhas region, through food relief. We need your help to continue a sustained supply of food to these initiatives and the communities they support.”, said Headstart Trust, project leader at The Headstart Trust. “Visit our project, ‘COVID-19 Rural Food Relief – Cape Agulhas region’ to learn how even $10 can make a difference: We’re $23 away from our overall goal of $5,400.”
