It’s About More Than Just Us

Since its establishment in 1932, VDT Attorneys Inc. has developed many relationships in the professional, legal and transformative realms of its surroundings. We have grown to be a firm known for high expertise and advanced work ethic.

Looking after our clients by providing tailor-made solutions to their matters remains a priority but we do not neglect our responsibility to the larger community. As a firm, we are annual facilitators of the VDT/Beeld Children’s Fund Golf Day. More than sharing in the pleasantries of swinging a few clubs and drivers, we raise funds and proceeds go to the Beeld Children’s Fund. The Fund aims to develop children from an early age to break the cycle of poverty and increase welfare.

Over the past 12 years to this commitment, we have donated over R1.7 million, which has been utilised for the basic and therapeutic needs of many homeless, orphaned and disabled children.

Additionally, we have identified, and continue to identify, proficient individuals from previously disadvantaged communities to develop and gain field-related work experience and academic education through career planning, training, and bursary schemes.

Human Rights: Upholding the right to education

Human Rights: Upholding the right to education

The right to education is outlined in section 29 of the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, 1996 (hereinafter “the Constitution”). This section guarantees that everyone has the right to basic education and the right to further education, which the state, through reasonable measures, must make progressively available and accessible. In South Africa the right to basic education can be described as a fundamental socio-economic right, that is, an entitlement to conditions and resources necessary for the material well-being of people.
