Jacob Lief, CEO, and founder of Ubuntu Education Fund, after arranging a huge amount in an annual gathering at Davos, still feels like they are getting funds but they are not able to change the lives of peopled. Jacob created a company Ubuntu Education Fund (UEF) with a vision that it will help kids from Cape Province for their education and their bright future.
He has recently hired Andrew Rolfe as a Chairman and Andrew is now working beside Jacob in Ubuntu Education Fund to help him for his noble cause. Andrew Rolfe is working hard to improve the social welfare, health care and the education problems in Cape Town. Andrew Rolfe has very inspiring credentials which made him ideal selection to work beside, Jacob Lief, a man with a noble cause
Jacob with the assistance of Andrew Rolfe is always looking for a helping hand, but he always prefers hand from a philanthropist who has faith in him and his company. He refused for the funds that come with a limitation and that rejections show that he is true to his cause and he wants kids for their education without any education.
Serving on a board of a non-profit firm also let donors have a watch on the operations of a non-profit. That can often be helpful, particularly if a donor has appropriate professional experience. Because in such case he can help that non-profit to work more efficiently and reach the area where it could not be due to the lack of professional knowledge.
Even if a donor become personally involved or don’t join the board in shaping the strategy of an organization, the terms of a grant can also make restrictions about how non-profits use the money. Donors who are rich usually like helping for a particular project, setting up scholarship funds or making gifts for buildings which can carry their names. But Andrew never thought of the name. He always worked for a noble cause no matter if he would be the name for that achievement. He is happy with a feeling that he is working for his cause and someone, somewhere is getting an education because of Ubuntu Education Fund.
