Andrew Rolfe Aids The Ubuntu Fund To Secure Adequate Funding


Last May, Andrew attended the 10th Annual Ubuntu Fund gala dinner. The event, which was held in London, sought to raise $972,960. This fund would be channeled towards augmenting the Ubuntu Fund’s school campus that is based in Port Elizabeth. In addition, the organizers of the event posited that they were planning to develop a modern pediatric clinic within the school compound. With adequate resources, they would be in a position to accept more disadvantaged children within the locality. The Ubuntu Fund has an innovative program that seeks to take care of the needy youth from when they are young to when they commence their careers. Organizers of the event reported that even though the event took the entire night; they were able to exceed their target.

The chairperson of the Ubuntu Fund, Andrew Rolfe, was mandated with the duty of treating the 300 guests to sumptuous meals and music, which was performed by a renowned Xhosa choir. In attendance were two beneficiaries of the Ubuntu Fund. In addition, many leaders were invited to the podium to make their inspiring speeches. Sinesipho Rabidyani, who is a recipient of the entity’s scholarship, made her speech after dinner. She stole the show. Sinesipho posited that when she was young, she never wanted to be at home owing to her father’s drinking behavior. However, she pursued her studies with all the seriousness it deserves and performed extremely well in her final exam. The management of the Ubuntu Fund was impressed by her success story. To this end, they deemed it fit to give her a scholarship. Moreover, she was offered psychosocial support. Sinesipho was also enrolled for a mentorship program.
