The Chinese Association (Gauteng)


We are actively involved in organising various community functions to promote cultural and social interactions between community network or organisations.

The Chinese Association and Women’s Federation (TCAWF) organise the Chinese New Year Celebration in First Chinatown on Commissioner Street, Johannesburg. This event is attended by thousands of people. The TCAWF organise a few functions annually which serve as community get-togethers and to raise funds for cancer awareness, food, and donations for the underprivileged, homeless, and more. We are proud to be associated with the following groups:

  • Chinese Catholic Welfare Association
  • Chinese Golf Association
  • City Point Church
  • Chung Wah Dragon and Lion Dance Troupe
  • First Chinatown Johannesburg
  • Grace Family Church
  • Handyware Africa
  • Hong Ning Chinese Aged Home
  • Southern Africa Chinese Sports Association
  • Southern Gauteng Chinese Sports Association
  • Tiger Sports Association
  • Transvaal Chinese United Club
  • SA Shunde Friendship Association
  • Maverick Stars Basketball

Depending on current events in the broader South African community, we have fostered very good working relations (amongst others) with the Hate Crimes Working Group, the Jewish Board of Deputies, and the Ahmed Kathrada Foundation.
