In this, the 200th anniversary year of the Catholic Church in South Africa, Club 6 000 is a joint fundraising initiative for two important institutions: St Augustine and Radio Veritas, the country’s only Catholic 'university' and Catholic radio station respectively. Club 6 000 aims to secure at least 6 000 members, each contributing R 1 000 per annum for a minimum of three years. The funds raised (to be shared on a 2:1 ratio) will be used to support various projects to which the two institutions are committed, including student bursaries, infrastructure development, and staffing and administrative support.
St Augustine College (www.staugustine.ac.za) offers a range of degrees, from the Bachelor through to the doctorate, a Certificate programme and a number of short courses for life-long learning. Committed to the values of the Catholic Intellectual Tradition, the mission of St Augustine is to produce graduates who have learnt ‘to think rigorously, so as to act rightly and to serve humanity better’; we aim to be a ‘Leader in Ethical Education’.
Radio Veritas (www.radioveritas.co.za) is committed to serving the interests of the Catholic community throughout southern Africa. Radio Veritas aims to entertain, inform, educate and inspire. Both accessible and professional, it acts as a ‘life guide’ to its listeners, providing them with hope and direction on a range of relevant topics, particularly those connected to the Catholic faith and life’s many challenges.
