Gogo and child“If we had our own fax, photocopier, and computer, this would help us a lot. Also transport is a problem because the police can’t always help and the taxis take a long time to fill up and leave.”                              Coordinator Zodwa Maramane

CCJ’s main donors are foreign foundations. The Centre also receives smaller donations from the corporate sector.

The Centre greatly appreciates the vital administrative support of the University of KwaZulu-Natal, with human resource management, IT, contracts, payroll and financial administration, and the use of its premises in the University.

For those that have donated to CCJ, we hope that we make you proud. Your investment is making a significant and measurable difference to people's lives.
Make A Donation:

There is always a need for more and if you or your organisation is in a position to fund CCJ, we would like to hear from you.

CCJ needs your help: our coordinators lack equipment such as computers, printers, fax machines and photocopiers, many of which they share with police and are difficult to get access to. These resources would enable staff to serve their clients faster and more efficiently: computers, photocopiers and fax machines mean coordinators can obtain, send and receive forms more quickly and obtain vital funds faster for a client. A larger transport budget would enable coordinators to reach clients quickly in emergencies and spend more time serving clients and less waiting for lifts from police and erratic public taxis.

In interviews in 2010, all twenty coordinators mentioned office equipment and transport as the areas they would most appreciate help with.

Most clients come from impoverished communities and coordinators often take their own money to buy a loaf of bread for a client who hasn’t eaten in two days or hand out old clothes from friends and family. If anyone is wDineo enrollingilling to donate clothes, toys and food, please contact the CCJ Head Office by email at or by calling (033) 260-5091. Even the smallest donation is appreciated.

CCJ pays for its coordinators to study paralegal diplomas and offers a CCJ Paralegal Scholarship for law degrees for outreach staff. As part of this program, coordinator Dineo Moshoeshoe (right) is currently studying her LLB at the University of KZN. If anyone would like to contribute to the training of coordinators, please contact us. Lastly, CCJ is trying to expand its library: if anyone could donate books on access to justice, please contact us.
