Welcome to the first of a monthly SATF Business forum news letter which you will receive on a regular basis. The business forum is currently being set up in all provinces in South Africa where ever the South Indian community resides. The purpose of this forum is to look at ways to assist the SATF promote and propagate the Tamil religion and culture through its various art forms and Hindu places of worship.
In addition the business forum seeks to engage in various discussions with the various structures to look at ways to economically empower the community it serves through an active members of the forum through membership fees. There is a now an active membership drive taking place in Gauteng which is the first province where the structure is being set up.
It is anticipated that Gauteng will be the experimental province which resolves all the challenges which confronts the provincial structure so that when other provinces are being set up many of the challenges experienced in Gauteng will have been already addressed.
The founding principal of the forum will be that all South Indians who follow the religion and culture will become members and not a selected few individuals who enrich themselves, it is founded on a broad based vision where all will benefit from the business opportunities that will unfold.
