While the South African government is tackling poverty amongst its citizenry and has developed various initiatives, this study looks at how generously ordinary South Africans give of their own time and money to assist with the alleviation of poverty, and why. An overview of the government's poverty relief policy is provided and important factors beyond government programs are discussed, such as levels and motivations of corporate giving, the effectiveness of religious institutions in mobilization and distribution of aid, and the levels and effects of foreign aid. This analysis provides invaluable insights into the dynamics of poverty and giving in South Africa and outlines relevant policy and strategic implications.
