LET’S MAKE THE GRASS GREENER ON OUR SIDE! (2017-08-02)

SOUTH AFRICA’S RECESSION HITS IMPOVERISHED CHILDREN EVEN HARDER (2017-06-08)

By Terrance M. Booysen

The ‘father’ of our nation, the late Nelson Mandela was once quoted saying, “as long as poverty, injustice and gross inequality persist in our world, none of us can truly rest.”  Upon reflecting on these profound words, one must seriously consider the current and dire state of South Africa, not least also the widening gap of inequality in South Africa.  Could South Africa’s current woes have been prevented if our nation and its current leaders followed the wisdom of Mr. Mandela, who envisaged South Africa to become a great nation when our apartheid shackles were removed?

ENNERDALE CAPTURES THE HEART OF BRITONS (2017-05-05)

By Terrance M. Booysen

Ever since the abolishment of South Africa’s inhumane ‘apartheid’ system of racial segregation which ended in 1994, the effects of its almost irreversible social destruction are evident on a daily basis.  No matter how a person wishes to describe the country’s young democracy, South Africa remains a land of stark differences.

By Terrance M. Booysen

CGF Research Institute (Pty) Ltd (‘CGF’) strives to regularly showcase registered small non-profit organisations (NPOs) who are involved in the care-giving of less privileged children in South Africa.  In this way, we aim to promote these smaller NPOs to our extensive corporate and government client database, in the hope that our clients will consider these NPO’s when planning and implementing their own corporate social investment (‘CSI’) programmes.

DESPONDENTLY POOR WITH BLEAK FUTURE (2016-06-01)

By Terrance M. Booysen

As is the case with so many developing countries across the world, poverty is a matter which is discussed as a growing crisis by heads of state, business leaders and civic groups; but the trends of poverty continue to rise.

CONSIDERING THOSE WHO ARE LESS FORTUNATE (2016-01-21)

By Terrance M. Booysen

South Africa is a nation of many contrasts, and this is especially true for those who have plenty compared to the millions who are far less fortunate.

Noah to benefit from governance pledges (15 Aug '11)

Increasingly, individuals hear so much about the values of good governance, yet most often never know what this really means and the manner in which to achieve good governance. Simply put, good governance is about upholding the principles of self discipline and ethical behaviour. Sadly, many individuals are 'ignorant' of this simple truth and have possibly believed that the term 'corporate governance' is only attached to the functions and behaviour of a board and its directors.
