Andrew Rolfe and The Ubuntu Fund Are Putting the Children First

Jacob Lief, founder of the Ubuntu Education Fund, came to a conclusion. After raising lots of money and speaking out at high profile events, such as the World Economic Forum in Davis, Jacob realized that their contributions were not changing people’s lives. He also realized why that happened.

Until then, the Ubuntu Fund, headed by board of directors chairman Andrew Rolfe, was accepting money from donors who donated money with a whole slew of limitations. These limitations included on how the money should be used, which children it should go to, and even that the money must be used to advance a certain project or cause that the donor was interested in. The problem was that the Ubuntu Fund was not able to do its job the right way and give the money for the causes that were most important to the children of Africa, where the Ubuntu Fund helps children from disadvantaged communities.

So Jacob Lief, along with the board of directors of the Ubuntu Fund and their chairman, Andrew Rolfe, decided that enough was enough and that they are going to start saying “no” to donors who come with all sorts of stipulations. Instead, they are going to focus on high-profile donors who will donate a lot of money at once and who understand that to donate with stipulations is not worth their time and that it will not help the children the way they need to be helped.

The Ubuntu Fund, headed by chairman of board of directors Andrew Rolfe, works with communities and families to provide help and support to each child individually. They make sure that every child has the ability to access health, education and stability so that they can rise out of poverty.

It’s not easy to find donors who don’t have any personal interests in their donations. Whether they want certain causes and agendas to be carried out or want to have a say in the actual operations of the charity, it is hard. Sometimes, they have experience and can help out. However, it can also lead to tension, especially when they have their own agendas which conflict with the charity’s. So Andrew Rolfe and his board decided to just say no, for the children’s sake.
