Andrew Rolfe is the chairman of the Ubuntu Fund that held an Education Fund charity gala in London. The goal was to raise $972,960; funds meant to help disadvantaged children in Africa. In Port Elizabeth, South Africa, the funds go to a school’s campus that helps children join the Campus and complete their education with ease. The Ubuntu Fund supports these kids because they realized they are so many factors that disable children in Africa from getting an education. Some of the factors are hunger and HIV. Rolfe had the chance of hosting and treating 300 attendees with music performed by a Xhosa choir added with tasty dishes.
The charity had special guests, two students who had benefited from the Ubuntu Fund and their stories moved people. One of the recipients, Sinesipho Rabidyani, told her story about her drunkard father. She said how she feared going back home after school because it wasn’t peaceful. The school offered her a scholarship enabling her to get an excellent education, in addition to mentoring and psychosocial support. She has been admitted into Faculty of Law all thanks to Ubuntu Fund and even persuaded her mother to leave an abusive husband. The gala was a success with Auctioneer Charlie Ross presiding over the auction.
Jacob Lief, the founder, and CEO of Ubuntu Fund ended the evening with a speech. He stated that children need everything when they are growing up, and for 20 years he had learned a lot while working with the Fund. Jacob also explained how the Ubuntu Fund came to exist when he realized that they needed to do more than just providing supplies in the school. The Fund, founded in 1991 by Jacob and Banks currently supports 2000 children in need in Port Elizabeth’s townships. In addition to education, the Fund also provides medical attention.

The life Mark Hutchinson chose to lead is not your normal, everyday grind. Mark could be considered part wildman and part businessman, but all conservationist and lover of earth’s beautiful nature. He has spent most of his life living and working in Australia’s bush or the wilds of Africa. As a child, he spent holidays at a friend’s home and fell in love with the call of the wild bush. Mark even spent a year after school jackarooing in the Northern Territory of Australia and later driving the length of Africa at just 19 years of age. He saw a side of nature that he wanted to share and started an ecotourism business called Untamed, which took city dwellers out into the wild for safaris or fishing tours to see and experience real nature and wild animals. This is where he realized how little first hand knowledge people had of what the earth gives us and how it needed to be saved. Learn more: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/415949715569059008/
While at an Eco Training course, he met his future business partner, Anton Lategan. They both shared a passion to help people reconnect with nature. The desire to teach his love of the world and combine it with Eco Training was coming true. However, some years later, this adventure evolved into a mission called Wild Ark. He realized that conservation of these wild habitats which contained the incredible scenery and animals needed to happen and on a much larger scale. These ecosystems had to be saved. Through Wild Ark, Mark’s mission transformed to acquiring land to re-wild and, in some cases, rehabilitate deteriorated land in order to form wildlife corridors between National Parks. Through his organization, he has literally restored tracts of bush and ocean. Mark is now raising his family between the bush and the city just north of Sydney. He surfs or swims every day and is taking a Masters program in Conservation while he continues to build Wild Ark. And because he’s a shareholder in Eco Training, Mark is involved daily and gets constant trips back to Africa. Learn more: https://www.facebook.com/wildarkglobal/posts/538048479728461
