Literacy is a luxury that many of us take for granted.  We depend on written communication for information, guidance, and access to heath care information That is why SADAG created SPEAKING BOOKS and revolutionized the way information is delivered to low literacy communities. It's exactly what it sounds like.a book that talks to the reader in his or her local  language, delivering critical information in an interactive, and educational way.

The customizable 16-page book, accompanied by local celebrity audio recordings, ensures that vital health and social messages can be seen, heard, read and understood..

We started with books on Teen Suicide prevention , HIV, AIDS and Depression, Understanding Mental Health and have developed over 30 titles, such as TB, Malaria, Polio, Vaccines for over 30 countries.

Festival of Christmas Trees

If you have been shopping in Sandton City lately you may have noticed our wonderful Festival of Christmas Trees on display in the upper fountain court. The proceeds from the sale of these trees are used for our National Suicide Prevention Line.

We would like to thank all the celebrities, staff, counsellors and volunteers who decorated or donated trees or vouchers for the festival.

Celebrities such as Nicole Fox, Michelle Garforth, Kerry McGregor, Emannuel Castis Graeme Richards, Batsetsane Khumalo, Lillian Dube, Leanne Mallis and Chi Chi Letswalo were all out decorating trees for SADAG’s festival of Christmas trees on the 16th of November.

We were fortunate to have such fantastic sponsors and decorators such as: Novel Greetings, Ferrari SA, Reinhart and Rosso Sport Auto, Laser Labs, Tantrum Toys, Oasys, Sandton City, Southern Sun, The Body Therapy at The Wedge, Casa de Galinha, The Cod Father Village of Restaurants, The Colony Body Clinic, Kumkuat Restaurant, Gourmet Garage, Lingerie and Leisure, Koko Bino, Comprint, Wine Connection, Norma & Vilma Caterers and so very many more , especially all our counsellors who helped with the decorating and set up. Jeanie, Roshni, Lisa, Faye, Helen, Michelle, Jeanine, Cindy, Katherine and Kerry all spent many hours setting it up.

We really appreciate all the help we received and the Festival would not be as successful as it has been so far without everyone involved. We wish you all happy holidays.
