The Tshedza Trust was established in 1997 as the ownership and governance vehicle for NEHAWU’s investment activities, primarily realised through the NEHAWU Investment Company – now NEHAWU Investment Holdings (NIH). The Trust was re-constituted in 2008 with a services and investment oriented mandate geared toward serving the interests of a broader sector of South African society through the National Education Health and Allied Workers Union (NEHAWU).

NEHAWU, the beneficiary of the Tshedza Trust, is one of the largest COSATU Unions (Congress of South African Trade Unions) with a base membership of two hundred and forty thousand members – 240 000, as accredited at the 2009 COSATU Congress. With slightly over 50% of NEHAWU’s members being black females – Tshedza Trust is classified as a broad based black economic partner.
