Ubuntu Tour - Community upliftment with partners
In partnership with Into Africa Safari the Timbavati Foundation played a vital role for the success of “Ubuntu Tour” by the Umass-Isenberg group of students from USA during May, 2016 . The students contributed computers which were donated to Tladishi high school and during the handover, the CEO of Into Africa Safari promised to get more computers into SA.
Meeting with Ekurhuleni centre’s board of directors Meeting with Tladishi high school principal
On the 25th of January DJ Du Preez (CEO, Into Africa Safari) and Lazaro Sibiya (Timbavati Foundation) held meetings with the principal of Tladishi and Ekurhuleni centre for orphans and vulnerable children to discuss the forthcoming Ubuntu tour – March 2017 which is due to take place with students and professors of Umass.
Computers will be donated to Frank Maghinyana and German S. Chiloane high schools in the Acornhoek area. Food will be donated to Ekurhuleni Centre. Professors will be coming with students from USA to assist educators and learners with Maths, Physical Science and Accounting at Tladishi High School where all grade 12 learners of Cottondale circuit doing these subjects will be engaged.
We, at the Timbavati Foundation, believe that giving back to the community fulfils the spirit of Ubuntu. We are so grateful to be in partnership with Into Africa Safari and Umass-Isenberg group. The Timbavati Foundation strives to do more for our schools to ensure a brighter future for the learners – Our Future leaders. Donating computers, food and capacitating learners is the true fulfilment of one of our pillars ‘Community Upliftment’.
