The COLAB Foundation is a social action innovation hub where people can discover, develop and deploy their unique passions, skills and talents and by so doing make a positive and lasting impact on society.

Born in 2015, the mission statement of Colab Foundation is to inspire and mobilize Johannesburg’s incredible people towards participatory and ongoing social action through accredited partners, who we also support through friendship, finances, accountability and ideas.

So, whether you are just starting out in order to discover where your unique talents/passions lie or are seeking to develop them further, we hope that you will be able to make a positive impact by volunteering with one of the accredited partners.

It is helpful to think of us as a conduit or pipe through which people, ideas and funds flow in order to transform the often dysfunctional city around us. The COLAB Foundation is closely aligned to God First City Church which currently meets at The Buzz Centre in Fourways, Johannesburg. In 2017, we have the exciting prospect of moving to our new base at City Green, 89 Witkoppen Road, North Riding.

Our ethos involves doing things in a laboratory (experimental) type way, through collaboration with government, business, churches and communities. We hope that this will build strong bridges between these various sectors of society.
