Greg Lefever's fundraiser for Ubuntu Education Fund

fundraiser

This summer I will be taking part in an amazing journey of service to South Africa with my school and Ubuntu Education Fund.

By forming a partnership with the Ubuntu Education fund (ubuntufund.org), students from Pace Academy are supporting a well- established grass roots organization. Ubuntu has identified and groomed talented orphaned and vulnerable kids from the townships of Port Elizabeth and begun the necessary work of transformation. By creating a programs of empowerment and life skills, they are working on transforming the lives of these young people, many who are by products of HIV/AIDS, orphaned, vulnerable and full of potential, to emerge from their circumstances and return to their communities as leaders and transformative agents, creating organizations to save their own lives.

We will travel there this summer as a part of our Global Education Department. We will work along side Ubuntu and raise money to support their education and wellness initiatives.

In January, Ubuntu Education Fund officially opened its new state-of-the-art Pediatric health clinic, the first of its kind in the region. The clinic will provide 500 children per month with full medical screenings and provide full HIV and TB testing/treatment/managment to every child who needs it in our community and their caregivers. In addition, they will have a full pre-natal unit to ensure HIV-positive mothers can give birth to HIV negative babies. The clinic is part of the larger Ubuntu Centre and thus all patients have access to Ubuntu's counseling and nutritional programs. By raising 25k, Pace students can sponsor a senior nurse and counselor for a year ensuring 200 children are provided with life-saving health services per month.

It is our goal to use this trip to advocate for young people of Port Elizabeth to have quality health and education.
