TRG Needs YOU!

Charitable campaigns are now happening and TRG activities are funded by generous donors like you!



TRG is purposefully an “all volunteer” organization. Our team believes that the skills we use in our daily professions make our experiences more relevant to the communities we serve in South Africa and the United States. Because we do not receive salaries, our team has an unwavering and personal commitment to TRG International. Financially, this also means every dollar stretches further because 100% of the proceeds from donations and fundraisers are used to provide direct support to our programs and initiatives.
