The Ukwakha Isizwe Foundation
Many of us desire to have a lasting impact on the wellbeing of the less fortunate in our communities. Often however, it’s hard to know where to begin; who to contact; which organisation to get involved with; how to contribute. It is for this reason that the Ukwakha Isizwe Foundation was established.
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 projects, covering a broad range of developmental issues: community development, education, orphans, and nutrition. In so doing we aim to impact our communities and build our nation.
By functioning as an umbrella organisation we alleviate the inevitable logistical difficulties that are present when trying to set up individual NPO’s. Instead, our constitution makes provision for the setting up of various projects under one banner, which simplifies the process of establishing charitable organisations. This in turn enables 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.
- To build self-esteem in individuals.
- Encourage creative self-expression.
- Make individuals aware of the different lifestyle choices available to them, despite their circumstances.
- Identify learning needs, assist with formal and/or informal education, and develop life skills.
- Assist individuals in creating sustainable income streams.
- Positively impact communities as a whole.
