Andrew Rolfe and the charity gala
He recently hosted the annual Ubuntu Education Fund Charity fundraiser in the United Kingdom. Mr. Rolfe was able to mobilize well-wishers who donated more than $603,000, which was more than the anticipated amount. The Ubuntu Education Fund is expected to use this money to fund and expand the student’s capacity in the Port Elizabeth Campus. Part of these funds would also be donated to the campus’ pediatric clinic. Mr. Rolfe’s goal is to create opportunities for disadvantaged families and children to explore their full potential. His position at the Ubuntu Education Fund enables him to steer the company into improving the lives of these vulnerable communities.
