The Ubuntu Fund is a renowned organization that has been supporting disadvantaged children in the society. Over the years, they have helped over 400,000 children. When Jacob Lief founded the organization, it was only focusing on provision of education. However, the management of the Fund realized that students were not realizing their full potentials in class. To this end, they decided to undertake a comprehensive research. They found that HIV and hunger was hampering many children from going to school and concentrating on their studies. The leadership of the Fund started providing the students with nutrition and healthcare services. Today, there is a high enrollment and many children are doing exceptionally well in their studies.
Notably, the Fund runs a school campus in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. At the institution, the management of the same developed an innovative program. This program seeks to support all children from when they join the school until when they commence their careers. Recently, the Fund decided to hold a gala dinner in London. 300 guests graced the auspicious occasion. Andrew Rolfe ensured that the guests were well entertained. Moreover, he made sure that each guest was served with the meal of his or her choice. The Fund expected to raise £600,000. To their surprise, they were able to raise over £603,000. During the occasion Sinesipho Rabidyani said that she is a proud beneficiary of the Fund’s scholarship. Her story of how her father’s drinking behavior affected her childhood touched most of the guests.
These funds shall be put into good use. The management of the Fund said that they would expand their campus and construct a large pediatric clinic. The Ubuntu Fund shall use the extra money to enroll more needy children in the society.
