The Ubuntu Fund is a non-profit organization dedicated to giving underprivileged children a chance at a quality education, therefore a quality life. It is based in South Africa and has been doing good work in the community for over 10 years now. One of the ways in which the Fund raises money is by putting together fund-raising galas, such as the one that happened this past May. The goal was to raise over $972,000 and it did so by raising $972,960. One of the projects the Ubuntu Fund is working on is opening a pediatric clinic that will be part of the school. The Gala was organized by Andrew Rolfe, the man-in-charge at Ubuntu Fund.
The Gala was attended by nearly 300 people and they were treated with amazing music and food. The event was attended by various dignitaries, and also by students who benefited from the Fund and got a good education. They also gave speeches speaking about the success of the organization which made the listeners happy. This why the attendees ultimately felt inspired and donated generously to the fund. In fact, one of the most inspiring speeches was by a former student named Sinesipho Rabidyani, who came from a difficult domestic background, and because of the Ubuntu Fund could escape all that, get an education, and eventually go to law school. She was even able to help some of her family members as a result of all this.
Andrew Rolfe is a graduate of Oxford University. He got his degree in Philosophy and Business Economics. He went on to get his MBA from Harvard University. He also holds the position of Managing Director at Tower Book Capital Partners.
Before joining Ubuntu And Tower Book, he served as an executive at GAP Inc, the clothing company. In fact, he was largely responsible for turning it into an internationally recognized brand. His success includes what he did for another clothing company, Banana Republic, by taking it to greater heights. From this kind of amazing background, Andrew is well poised to take the Ubuntu Fund to the next level.
