Brownies & downieS supports Our Second Home, an NPO which trains people who have intellectual disabilities at our cafe. The NPO also finds employment for these amazing individuals! Our NPO supports people who would otherwise be discriminated against – people who have autism, down-syndrome, fetal alcohol syndrome and other learning disabilities. You can read more about Our Second Home, and our affiliation with the programme here.

Tax Reduction Donation S18A
Our NPO is a registered Public Beneficiary Organisation with 18A status. Any business donating to our NPO will be issued with a Letter of Appreciation, stating all the legal requirements which will be needed by your business to make a valid claim for tax reduction at the end of your financial year up to an amount of 5% of your company’s annual taxable income. This translates to an effective out-of-pocket expense of 70% of the amount donated.
Our NPO is an EME with Level 2 B-BBEE status. Donations to our NPO can be allocated to your BEE spend. A Letter of Appreciation will be issued to your company thanking you for the donation, with all legal requirements therein, once a donation has been paid.
B-BBEE points can be claimed and distributed through our NPO to your business scorecard under the following elements:
- Skills Development
- Enterprise and Supplier Development
- Management Control
- Socio-Economic Development
Hire a Trained Beneficiary
Our NPO’s trained beneficiaries need somewhere to work! They are trained in the fields of hospitality and retail. Our social integration specialists can fit the right people to the jobs you require. We also perform integration services and sensitisation training to your employees to make sure you and your new employee are given the correct tools for success, and spend time in your business with the candidate training them on your systems and ways of working.
B-BBEE points can be awarded based on hiring an individual from our training programme who is ready for work, and has an intellectual disability.
