Each year the Johannesburg HOMEMAKERS Expo chooses a worthy cause to support as part of its Corporate Social Investment Strategy. The South African Guide-Dogs Association for the Blind was chosen for the 2020 Johannesburg HOMEMAKERS Expo.
The aim of HOMEMAKERS Expo’s support is to help NPOs raise awareness, grow membership and raise funds by having a stand at the show.
The presence of the Guide-Dogs Association team, including some working dogs in training gave visitors an opportunity to engage with the association while giving the puppies and dogs in training some valuable public interaction experience.
