The tenth Annual Ubuntu Fund was set with the aim of raising nine hundred and seventy-two thousand, nine hundred and sixty dollars that were going to be used to benefit the School Campus in Port Elizabeth that is located in South Africa. Andrew Rolfe; the Chairman of Ubuntu Fund plans to give an opportunity to disadvantaged children. The program was intended to help youths who are underprivileged thus helping them achieve their careers.
Andrew Rolfe had the opportunity of treating three hundred attendees who attended the gala. He arranged for their entertainment by a Xhosa choir and their meals. The gala was also attended by two special guests who have also benefited from the Ubuntu Fund.
One of the students who attended in the gala was Sinesipho Rabidyani. She told her story which touched the hearts of many people at the gala. Her father was a drunkard who made her life hard. The school gave her a scholarship. She was mentored and also received psychosocial support. Sinesipho is really thankful for the help that the Ubuntu Fund had given her. She was recently admitted into Law School. She is trying to persuade her biological mother to divorce her drunk father.
Ubuntu Fund had several goods that were sold during the Gala. They managed to raise a total of thirty-eight thousand six hundred and sixty-seven dollars. Jacob Lief; the Chief Executive Officer of Ubuntu Fund ended the evening with a speech. He believed that a child should be provided with everything necessary to grow up. Jacob has participated in helping Malizole Gwaxula who owned a school in South Africa. He has proved the children in the school with the necessary resources for the school. Ubuntu Fund came into existence to provide more for the disadvantaged children.
