Amorphous Stride is a subsidiary of Amorphous New Media and has 51% black ownership and 48% black women ownership, making us a level 2 Exempted Micro Enterprise. The formation of Amorphous Stride is a reflection of Amorphous New Media’s commitment to being a catalyst for positive change in people’s lives and supporting them on their path to economic freedom.
We’re the change we want to see
Even with all the positive changes happening in South Africa, the stories of transformation, hope and triumph, there are still too many people left behind. The ones who fail matric because they don’t have a light to study by, the ones who have to drop out of school so they can work to support their families, the ones who every day taste the bitter desperation of not knowing how they will feed their children that night. We’ve decided to do something about that by creating Amorphous Stride.
We’ve partnered with two phenomenal organisations that are creating tangible change in the very heart of our society. We are proud to touch the lives of hundreds of thousands of South Africans and contribute to the upliftment that ripples out through communities and generations.
A hand up, not a hand out – Phakamani Foundation
“Rise up” is what Phakamani means in isiZulu, and it is exactly what this organisation assists women in poor areas to do. By investing more than R95 million in micro-loans to over 70 000 entrepreneurs in rural areas, Phakamani spreads hope and dignity, and enables women to create safe, comfortable lives for their families and future generations.
Educating for life – ORT SA
Years of toil in a low-income job, even with a positive attitude, is not enough to lift a person out of poverty. This is why ORT SA believes in the power of education. Since it was launched in South Africa in 2004, it has improved the lives of over 67 000 learners and 1 500 teachers, in hundreds of schools.
