Charities4Change is a charity networking initiative. We give organizations an opportunity to promote what they do in the community. The aim is also for all organizations to be open with regards to helping and supporting each other. It is only when we stand together and work together that we can have a bigger impact on our communities. Our aim is also to invite organization who can benefit charity organization to attend, these range from CSR representatives of large corporates to individuals who support charities, as well as the media.
