CSR demonstrates that you as an individual or business, takes an interest in broader social issues, rather than just things that only impact your profit margins.

Consumers are increasingly aware of the importance of social responsibility. Individuals will easily pay a premium for goods, knowing that parts of the profit are channelled toward social causes that they value.

Apart from offering sustainable CSR opportunities, we also assist companies to establish unique solutions that will directly benefit their local community, create awareness and reach their target market. CPI SA’s unique model can be implemented seamlessly, effortlessly, and successfully within any organization or company’s framework.

We understand the essence of your business and the importance of your financial output. That is why we want to create a transparent and targeted corporate social responsibility programme for your company, that generates maximum value.

Bags of Mercy Initiative

South Africa has one of the highest rates of violence against women (GBV). The Bags of Mercy Initiative mobilises women to become an invisible friend to an abused woman by gifting a handbag – old or new – filled with things that can make her rediscover her self-worth.

Abuse against women usually takes place behind closed doors:
Hard words where no-one else can hear.
Blows where no-one can see it.
