What you need to know about Absa Stokvel Awards

In every community across South Africa, there's a story waiting to be told – a story of resilience, unity, and the unwavering spirit of Ubuntu. In every story, there lies an opportunity to make a difference and at the heart of many of these stories lies the tradition of stokvels – a beacon of hope in times of uncertainty, a symbol of solidarity in the face of adversity.

At Absa, we see more than just numbers and transactions; we see the heartbeat of a nation, pulsating with the rhythm of shared dreams and collective aspirations.

With the first ever Absa Stokvel Awards, we're shining a spotlight on the incredible achievements of stokvels and the individuals who fuel their success. Join us on this journey of discovery, growth, and transformation! You can nominate any stokvel if they meet the minimum criteria.
