What we do


We support other organisations by volunteering with them and encourage others to join us and do the same.


We target a specific need and initiate collection drives to gather unwanted items and share them with others.


We form partnerships with others to assist them in fulfilling a need they have identified within their organisation.


We create awareness of the incredible work that individuals and organisations are doing within our community.

Our Story

"We aim to encourage a keen culture within South Africa"

Keen humbly began back in 2013. After a year of organising birthday parties at a children’s home, The Keen Movement was registered later in 2014. Along with the overwhelming support from the community, we soon found ourselves hosting a variety of events on a monthly basis. These events allowed us to nurture relationships through activities such as arts and crafts, reading, gardening, watching movies, playing games and sports. Many brainstorm sessions and treasured memories later, we have shifted our focus to encouraging a keen culture within South Africa. We now aim to continuously support, build relationships and partner with existing organisations..

At the centre of Keen is the idea of recruiting and motivating people to become volunteers. To donate their time for a veritable cause. This is what I find most appealing about Keen.

We so often take things in life for granted because we’ve always had it, others don’t. “It’s easy to make a buck. It’s a lot tougher to make a difference.” – Tom Brokaw

Keen continuously shows me how easily a fraction of our time can impact the lives of others. It’s so easy to take things for granted, but being part of this movement we’re so often reminded how fortunate we are.

“I think it would be pretty cool to create a collective shift that centralizes around a volunteer culture. This, I feel is the essence of The Keen Movement. Also, the world could do with a little more kindness and compassion!”

Mahatma Ghandi once said, “Be the change you want to see in the world”. My love for people and animals alike allow me to actively be a part of the change I want to see in the world.

I joined Keen as a volunteer on a couple of occasions and found it to be really interactive and fun, also a good way to give back to our community. We work with an awesome team of passionate people.
