Everyone has a cradle to career story. For our 3rd Annual Gala, a distinguished crowd gathered at Fox Junction to celebrate cradle to career journeys. Our MC Anele Mdoda inspired us and kicked off an evening of fine dining, music, art, and powerful stories of change. Langa Mavuso filled the room with his incomparable voice. Ubuntu Pathways scholar-turned manager, Nozibele Qamngana, reminded us of the struggle and uplifted us with a vision of the possibilities. Finally, CEO Jacob Lief shared a vision for the expansion of the Ubuntu Campus– including our first ever primary school. Our auction brought exciting experiences from Franschhoek to Botswana, and even dinner with author Khaya Dlanga– along with one-of-a-kind art from Nelson Makamo and more.

Together, we raised funds to create even more opportunities for township children and their families. We are so grateful to our amazing host committee, gala chairs, and sponsors for making the night possible.
