Corporate Social Responsibility

At the BetterLife Group, we believe in improving the lives of those less fortunate than ourselves.

Through the Khaya Lam Initiative we turn every title deed into a good deed, and into a tract of land.

With every new bond registered through MortgageMax, we make it better for those less fortunate than us, we are giving someone in the Khaya Lam Initiative a chance to hold their title deed in their hands for a home to truly call their own - and that, really, is why we do what we do.

What is the Khaya Lam Initiative?

'Khaya Lam' means 'my home.' So much is loaded into this simple phrase: It is the honouring of our basic right to shelter and security, through the pursuit and protection of property rights.

Our objective each year is to secure full freehold title for members of the Ngwathe community in the Free State, at no cost to the lawful residents. But this is just the beginning. The Khaya Lam Initiative is also unfolding right across South Africa. With the ongoing support of our business partners and their customers, we will continue to improve the lives of those in need.

If you want to help us make ownership a reality for thousands of families that have never owned a home, you can donate any amount – no matter how big or small – every bit helps!

Donations can be made through the BetterLife Foundation, via the non-profit payment portal
