About Vuya Foundation
Donate to our Cause
The Vuya Foundation is a Non-Profit Company that operates in the Western Cape of South Africa, particularly in the Cape Winelands and Witzenberg area.
Our aim is to better the lives of previously disadvantaged individuals and communities by addressing the desperate need in our country for education and job creation.
The Vuya Foundation has three focus areas:
- Early childhood development (ECD), particularly in rural areas.
- Women-led small and medium enterprises, again focusing on rural areas.
- Tertiary education, in the form of bursaries for underprivileged learners, both in Cape Town and rural areas.
Many South Africans, particularly in rural areas, still face untold hardship that stem, in part, from poverty, lack of education and scarcity of opportunities. Although South Africa has to-date enjoyed 20 years of democracy, the government is overburdened and cannot always deliver effectively. This is where the Vuya Foundation tries to step in.
As the late Nelson Mandela once said: “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” And that is a view that we whole-heartedly believe.
