That is why we launched the 2021 SIKUNYE SIMILE Campaign.
Because together we can...
WHAT is the Sikunye Simile Campaign?
This campaign is a way to support not only our own training company (AkukhanYa) but also our Not for Profit partner's two skills centres in Germiston & Albertskroon (Out of the Box), as well as the numerous entrepreneurs & skills trainers we work with. The campaign also supports local welfare organisations (human & animal), as well as our local communities and especially children with school supplies. Businesses score B-BBEE points and individuals can deduct the cost of the tickets from their annual tax.
The campaign will run over 10 monthly cycles and each month 2500 tickets will be up for grabs. (February to November 2021)
The tickets are R250.00 each and every month there will a LOT of prizes that can be won. ALL prizes are either made by local entrepreneurs or produced in Mzanzi. It is a proudly South Africa campaign. there is also a RANGE of prizes in each price bracket and the winner can CHOOSE their prize of choice.
The final draw will be in December 2021 with a BIG PRIZE of the winner's choice of either a car or a bakkie to the value of R300,000.00. All ticket holders will go into the draw for the final prize.
WHO will this campaign make a difference to?
4 x Not for Profit Organisations
a LOT of small entrepreneurs
Our local communities
School going children

WHAT is this campaign about?
It is a fundraiser for all the parties mentioned above.
You can also call it a sweepstake... or a competition... or a raffle...
Whatever you are comfortable with.
Tickets are for sale & amazing prizes can be won every month, with a final BIG draw in December.
It is also tax deductable and great B-BBEE points for any company looking to add a point or ten to their scorecard. (Depending on how much they "invest" in the campaign.)

HOW can YOU be part of the campaign's success?

#1 - Buy a ticket
(or 10 or even a 100 if you are corporate)
They are only R250.00 a ticket and even ONE ticket is a solution.
What can one ticket do?
“... a grain of mustard seed, which is the smallest of all seeds on earth. Yet when planted, it grows and becomes the largest of all garden plants, with such big branches that the birds can perch in its shade."
Full details on the "Sikunye Simile Campaign" pages.
Here is the link for quick access.
#2 - Spread the word
Crowdsourcing is the best way to make a campaign a success. Each one of us has a network of friends, family, colleagues, social groups.
You might not be in HR or dealing with the organisations B-BBEE, you might not even work in an organisation, but you can share this competition with r networks and spread the word as far and wide as possible. Maybe your company will be interested to support us through their Socio-Economic Development fund. (Major B-BBEE points for them.)
*The prizes alone make this an exciting competition for individuals & organisations alike!
#3 - follow us on social media
We are on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram & even WhatsApp & Telegram for updates & chats.
Daily updates and information will be given. Promotions will be shared on a weekly basis - how you can double your entry without buying another ticket, or random Facebook & Twitter & WhatsApp friend draws, or just because we feel amazing about what we do.
#1 - Prizes for Individuals
We have a separate competition (prizes) for individuals; so that the person who bought one ticket does not compete in the draw with a company who may have bought 10 or more tickets.
The same prizes are up for individuals & companies, but the number of prizes will be divided pro rata based on the % of individuals who bought a ticket compared to the % of companies who bought a ticket before each monthly draw.
#2 - "Finish 2021/2022 STRONG" calendar
Every person or company that buys FOUR raffle tickets will receive a "Finish 2021 Strong" calendar. Not just one calendar, but one for EVERY FOUR tickets bought.
The "Finish 2021/2022 Strong" calendar is not a monthly but 52-week calendar - clearly marked with South African holidays& motivational quotes. It is a dry erase surface calendar (with whiteboard pens) that can be used for short and long term planning.
#3 - Prizes for companies
There are special prizes for companies on top of the general prizes that everyone is eligible for.
Companies can also win AET training contracts, Learnership training contracts, Computer training contracts & Essential Skills training contracts.
(*That does not even include the amazing B-BBEE points that can be obtained under elements 4 & 5 of the B-BBEE Scorecard!) *Supporting an EME (Level 2 company) + Non Profit (18a Certificate) + Community Outreach.
#4 - Community Prize
Prizes for communities?
YES! a 1/5th of every ticket goes towards:
* supporting local welfare organisations in the East & West Rands (they support ANY family that needs special assistance over these tough times)
* plus we have identified a number of families that have NOTHING and no hope at the end of every month. They will be hosted to a very special "Make Them Smile" lunch and go home with food parcels and toys or stationery for the kids in the family. Every child needs a special end of the month day!
* we will be providing school supplies packets (and bags made by one of our entrepreneurs) for the children of the families identified as part of our "Make Them Smile" project.
#5 - MASKS for the community
We are donating a mask & safety information brochure to a local community member for every ticket sold. If we reach our goal of 2 500 tickets sold in every cycle, that means distributing 2 500 masks in the informal settlements (black & white settlements in the West & East Rand of Gauteng) with a motivation pamphlet in English, Afrikaans, Zulu & Xhosa why it is crucial for all to maintain safety measures for the foreseeable future. Over the duration of the campaign, we will distribute 25 000 masks to the most vulnerable in our communities.
#6 - prize for the most Tickets sales
Our learners, staff & partners are all selling tickets and we promised the individual & the group who sell the most tickets will be treated to a very special braai at Noag's Market in Pomona, Kempton Park.
#7 - Hall of Fame
Every individual who buys a ticket will go onto our Hall of Fame.
Every company who buys a ticket (or 10) will go onto our Hall of Fame.
Everyone will receive a Hall of Fame Certificate via email.
Every person | company who requests it will also receive a Tax deductable letter (18a), as well as a letter to state that they supported an EME, NPO & Community Outreach Project for the full amount of the sales of the tickets.
February - December 2021
The campaign will run over 10 monthly cycles in 2021.
The final BIG draw for the BIG prize of a car or bakkie will take place on 15 December 2021.
The draw for each month will take place on the 1st day of the next month.
Winners will be notified on the 2nd of every month via Email, WhatsApp, Telegram, Facebook & Twitter.
Prizes will be completed as per each individual/company's preference and delivered within 14 days from the draw.
Why only 14 days AFTER the draw?
Each prize (with the exception of the "Finish 2021 Strong" Calendars) will be customized to the winners' personal preferences and we can only do this when the draw has taken place and we have communicated with all the winners. We don't want to send a Whisky Gift Pack to a Beer drinker for example.
