The Ukwakha Isizwe Foundation
Ukwakha Isizwe Foundation was established to assist those in the community that would like to become involved with impacting the well being of the less fortunate.
Ukwakha Isizwe is both a registered Non-Profit Organisation (NPO) and a Public Benefit Organisation (PBO). The organisation’s name was adopted from one of South Africa’s official vernacular languages – iSiZulu – and means ‘Building a Nation’. It is indicative of our commitment to enhancing the lives of our people, and our communities.
We function as an umbrella organisation for several initiatives, covering a broad range of developmental issues; community development, education, economic and skills development, disaster relief, and nutrition. Through these initiatives we aim to impact our communities and build our nation.
Through this matrix we alleviate the logistical difficulties that can present, when trying to create individual NPO’s. Our constitution makes provision for the establishment of various projects under one banner, thereby simplifying the process, and enabling us to extend the scope of our reach.
To offer support to associate projects, which enhance the quality of life of people who do not have the ability to do so for themselves. The main objective of each of these projects is to create opportunities for individuals and/or families, so that they in turn can positively contribute towards the community and building the nation.
