Experian, a leading global information services company, has started a new partnership with local Ubuntu Education Fund, a grassroots nonprofit organization dedicated to fundamentally transforming the lives of children and their families in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, to furnish the children of the region with essential school supplies and contribute to the development of their education.
Ubuntu Education Fund (Ubuntu) received a donation of $15,000 from Experian to kick-start the partnership. Experian is partnering with Ubuntu because of its established relationships within the region that will ensure supplies reach children quickly and efficiently to achieve maximum results.
“For 15 years, Ubuntu has worked to create an environment where the children of Port Elizabeth have all the resources needed to achieve their personal and professional goals, breaking the cycle of poverty for generations to come,” said Jacob Lief, CEO and Founder of Ubuntu Education Fund. “We are proud to partner with Experian to help provide children with the educational tools to succeed.”
Experian was able to connect with Ubuntu through the organization Aid for Africa, a charity alliance of U.S.-based nonprofits and their African partners working to help children, families, and communities throughout Sub-Saharan Africa.
“Experian believes investment in early education and development of youth is essential in any country to help give young people a strong foundation to succeed in life,” said Abigail Lovell, vice president of corporate marketing at Experian. “We are excited to partner with Ubuntu Education Fund, which will use our financial contribution to help not only provide basic education supplies, but also holistically care for children to give them a better chance of success.”
