The Forum, Bryanston

Thank you to everyone who joined us for the 2023 Joburg Gala. Your generosity will help launch our Afterschool Academic Accelerator and ensure that our students have what all children deserve - everything they need to thrive.

Nomhle's speech reminded us that opportunity can empower anyone to become a superhero. Ma Thandi demonstrated what it means to embody the spirit of ubuntu, an example to us all. It was inspiring to see South Africa's most prominent leaders, artists, and philanthropists gather to create opportunities for the next generation of change-makers. Truly, this is a nation of champions.

Our deepest gratitude to our amazing host committee, event and table sponsors, auction donors, and everyone who came to support and celebrate Ubuntu!
