Rag

Tuks RAG

The slogan of Tuks RAG is: "To develop students by channeling their energy and  looking for fun in fundraising and community service projects." RAG is an abbreviation for, Reach out And Give. Tuks RAG is the biggest organisation of its kind in the country and the third largest in the world. Each year about R2 million is paid out to charity. The students that participate at Tuks RAG receive no payment for their time, but rather do it for the love of the cause. That is what makes RAG so unique.

Sonop RAG

For Sonop, RAG is a massive event each year. We are very focused on charity, and try to provide a helping hand where we can. RAG week includes things like float building, ‘drastoel’ race and many other social activities. At the end of the day, this is only a small part of RAG, a very big part of our energy and attention focuses on projects which improve the living standards of the poorer communities.

RAG as an organisation’s main purpose is to collect money, and to then provide it to the people who need it most. That is why Sonop also has a Dromedaris every second year, which is a cycling tour to raise money for cancer. As you can see, it is very important to Sonop Christelike Tehuis to give back to our community for that which they provide us with.
