The success of any corporation is correlated to its leadership. As one of the leaders of the Ubuntu Fund, Andre Rolfe has been at the center of ensuring that the organization runs as a going concern. In the recent past, he was part of the leaders of the Fund who planned for its gala dinner in London. The invitation-only event was attended by different philanthropists and entrepreneurs. Rolfe was mandated with the duty of ensuring that they are provided with food. Andrew brought in a Xhosa choir that entertained the 300 guests throughout the night. When going for the dinner, the management of the Fund was optimistic of raising over $ 972,960. At the end of the event, the guests had contributed more than their initial target.
This fund would be put into good use. According to the Fund, a portion of the funds shall be expended in expanding their school campus’s capacity. In addition, they would expand the pediatric clinic, which has been built within the school. This way, they would be ready to increase the number of needy children joining the institution.
Malizole “Banks” Gwaxula and Jacob Lief are the founders of the successful Ubuntu Education Fund. When they founded it in 1999, they started by offering the needy children with educational tools. However, they realized that hunger and HIV was affecting the student’s concentration in class. It is for this reason that the Fund started offering healthcare services and nutrition to the students. To date, the institution has supported thousands of disadvantaged children across Africa. The school campus, which is in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, has continued to support many children in the region.
