Andrew Rolfe Focuses On Education Through The Ubuntu Education FundJune 18, 2017 - Author: steph - No Comments
The Ubuntu Fund remains as being among the most prominent charitable organizations in the world today. It has been around for over a decade now. The Fund is focused on providing financial support for the educational systems in Africa so that kids get access to quality education. The Ubuntu Fund does raise a lot of money. But it is yet to turn around the educational standards of kids in this area.
Andrew Rolfe is the Chairman of the Ubuntu Fund. He believed that the reason behind this issue could be that several contributors to this fund were investing their money with some amount of strings attached. Andrew Rolfe opposed to this idea. He wanted to give the Ubuntu Fund full authority to do what they wanted with the money. He did not want that the investors should have any say on where and how that money is to be used.
This is the reason why over the past year this Ubuntu Fund has managed to change its approach towards raising of capital as well as on using that money.
Today, the Ubuntu Fund only accepts money from those donors who are willing to give them a free hand in using that money. This has led to the Ubuntu Foundation having much lesser money today. But the fund is able to make a much greater impact than before. This is because the Ubuntu Fund is providing a focused approach today to the education in this area. Each student is given a detailed education plan along with specific attention. With this change, the Ubuntu Fund has managed considerable improvement in the education system. Besides, they are looking at the progress of individual students.
Andrew Rolfe is a leader of the Ubuntu Fund. He is supervising the basic needs of students who are based in the Port Elizabeth area. Under his leadership, the Ubuntu Fund has shown dramatic improvements. These are in terms of its fundraising efforts along with an overall improvement in the education system of the area in which it is operating.
Andrew Rolfe wants to empower kids in a way that they are able to lead a successful life later on.
