LegalWise plays a significant role in the social and economic development of South Africans, through the provision of access to justice for all. Guided by the Financial Sector Code of Good Practice on Black Economic Empowerment in terms of Section 9(1) of the B-BBEE Act 53 of 2003, we aim to further support positive transformation within the communities in which we operate through responsible Corporate Social Investment (CSI) practices.
In order to facilitate transformation, LegalWise believes in the power of connecting people and establishing shared value partnerships that ensure a meaningful impact in community development. All this is achieved with the support of the LegalWise management and staff, as well as their Members, who believe in working together to improve the lives of all South Africans.
LegalWise believes that all people possess the strengths and assets to drive their own development. We believe in a philosophy of starting with what you have and building on what you know and therefore avoid responding only to a community’s needs and deficiencies, where communities are often passive recipients of funding and services and are not motivated to find solutions to their challenges. We choose rather to focus on building on what people have already done for themselves. We aim to instil a culture where people recognise both their rights and responsibilities through active citizenship to be the driving force of their own development.
