The Ubuntu Fund is a renowned organization that has been using its resources and manpower to offer different services to disadvantaged children across Africa. The entity runs a school campus in Port Elizabeth. At the institution, they have a noble program that seeks to enhance the health of the children. In addition, they cater for their educational needs. When children join the institution, they are provided with all the basic needs until they begin their careers. When the organization was founded, it only zeroed in on offering education. However, they conducted a comprehensive research that showed that HIV and hunger were preventing most children from realizing their full potentials in education. It is for this reason that the entity saw the need to expand its offing to the needy children.
In the spirit of enhancing their operations, the management of the Ubuntu Fund saw the need to hold a funds drive. This way, Andrew Rolfe organized a gala dinner in London. The event was well attended. Jacob Lief, the co-founder of the Fund, attended the dinner. He also delivered an inspiring speech. Rolfe ensured that all the guests were well fed and entertained. The leadership of the Ubuntu Fund expected to raise $ 972,960. The event lasted the entire night. The entire Ubuntu Fund was excited that they managed to exceed their expectation.
This money shall be used to expand the entity’s campus in South Africa. Some funds shall be utilized in constructing a pediatric clinic that will cater to the healthcare needs of the children. With adequate resources, the Ubuntu Fund shall be in a position to increase the number of needy students who join the institution.
