Sandile Shezi Foundation

The Sandile Shezi Foundation is a non-profit organisation which was established with the sole purpose of transforming young people’s minds and lives in the African Continent. The philosophy upon which the Foundation is built emphasizes enhancing Africa’s Education, Health and Wealth to enable Africans to assume responsible roles in the development of our nation.

Education

An educated population is essential for national prosperity and it brings a wide range of benefits to society. The African Education system is beset with functional problems that limit the learning experience of students.

To help in developing a more productive and inclusive school climate, The Sandile Shezi Foundation Educational Program looks to sponsor more than 2500 students with bursaries and scholarships by the year 2025.

The Foundation’s Rural and Township School Development Programme hopes to expose learners in these areas to opportunities which are currently only found in urban areas, through our Textbook Support Initiative, amongst others.

Health

Better health is central to human well-being and productivity and makes an important contribution to economic progress. The Sandile Shezi Foundation Health Program works to strengthen the capacity of marginalized populations by supporting their overall health and well-being in an effort to touch more than 250 000 lives by the year 2025.

We package health seminars and conferences with health experts that promote good health, prevention, care, and recovery.

Our core initiatives include supporting and funding major operations for the marginalized, HIV/AIDS and Cancer Support, #CleanupSA program as well as the Donate a Wheelchair and Health equipment Initiative.

Wealth

Innovation and entrepreneurship plays a critical role in making room for employment, wealth creation and sustainable economic improvement. The Sandile Shezi Foundation aims to have more than 2.5 million successful entrepreneurs by the year 2025.

Our main program, called ‘’Adopt an entrepreneur’’, focuses on improving the skills and knowledge of entrepreneurs through training, mentorship and consultation. We invite business leaders to guide entrepreneurs to blend their passions with support structures and resources to tackle challenging problems that come with innovative ideas.

Woman empowerment and business development is at the core of our Wealth Program which contributes to the expansion of world trade on a non-discriminatory basis while creating the awareness and support for financial stability.
