  |   Sanews

ImStaying, a Facebook group which seeks to "unite all South Africans", has announced that it has evolved into an NGO, raising funds to accomplish its mission.

In a statement on Monday the organisation said the move was suggested by its members "to implement a number of initiatives aimed at helping to stimulate the economy through SMME (Small Medium Micro Enterprise) businesses and job creation in this sector".

The NGO will look at national events, crowdfunding and merchandising.

Funds raised would also go towards business initiatives "in the micro and SMME space to open their doors, scale their business or create collaborative opportunities to work together," the organisation said.
