Working on breaking the cycle of poverty since our inception


Since our establishment in 2007, the foundation has always focused on promoting social development through human capital development projects.


Our conception of human capital is derived from the World Bank definition “Human Capital consists of the knowledge, skills, and health that people accumulate throughout their lives, enabling them to realize their potential as productive members of society”.

To date, the foundation has funded over 17 university bursaries, 8 beneficiary organizations and continues to look for more innovative ways to increase our impact.
