Our Friends

At Bidvest Insurance Group, we take our responsibility to the communities we operate in very seriously. Every member of staff actively participates towards these causes.

LIV Village


LIV provides holistic residential care for vulnerable children. They place parentless children into a family environment that not only meets their basic physical needs, but also provides unconditional love, spiritual discipleship, care and nurturing.

The School offers an education based on Christian values in which every child can achieve his or her full potential and grow in spirit and trust and service to all people; thus contributing to a free and just society.

Rally to Read


The Rally to Read was launched in 1998 when the HSRC (Human Sciences Research Council), approached McCarthy to lend them a 4×4, needed to reach remote rural schools as part of a study on school resources.

What was to be a once-off expedition quickly became a national project and now, during May and June each year, convoys of vehicles depart from five cities across the country to deliver educational material and resources to some of the country’s most remote and neglected schools
