LAKHIZWE FOUNDATION AT A GLANCE
A Bit of Background about us...
LAKHIZWE FOUNDATION is a registered Non-Profit Company fixed on Social Entrepreneurship, Early Childhood Development, and Youth Empowerment in order to uplift the Physical (Body), Mental (Mind), Emotional (Soul) and Spiritual (Essence) “wellness” by applying “Supreme Principles” (the “Word”).
We Assist, Counsel, Guide and Empower the less fortunate, the deprived, social outcasts, the miserable, traumatized, confused, lost, broken-hearted, hurting, mourning and hopeless people who have given up on themselves, their family and friends. We see value in people as the Scripture says: “He purposely chose what the world considers nonsense in order to shame the wise, and He chose what the world considers weak in order to shame the powerful. He chose what the world looks down on and despises, and thinks is nothing, in order to destroy what the world thinks is important.” (1 Corinthians 1:27-28)
Our mission is to build a Free, Conducive and an Unintimidating Environment that will Invite (Reach Out), Get-To-Know (Engage), Guide (Advise), Coach (Mentor) and Upskill (Empower) the sidelined Youth in order to participate in our Economy (Ecosystem) through sustainable and innovative means involving Supreme Principles (the “Word”) with Technology and Fellowship Platforms to promote Volunteerism (Servanthood) to intensify “positive” Citizenship Behaviour.
Making A Difference in People's lives everyday...
We are a diversity embracing movement that is founded on principles of CHARITY (LOVE) operating as a Fellowship Platform serving communities, families, and individuals as Servants (Agents of Change) fixed on empowering the youth to become socially responsible, exemplary and economically productive citizens.
We enable change in our communities to foster Peace, Socioeconomic Development, Social Entrepreneurship and Responsible Citizenship to achieve inclusive Growth as we are committed to Doing Good (Uprightness) through our efforts, especially in impoverished and underdeveloped regions.
We influence Change (Transformation) primarily in; (1) Arts & Entertainment, (2) Business, (3) Education,
(4) Family, (5) Government, (6) Media and (7) Religion. Generally, People separate the “Creator” from the areas of influence in our culture as they are not seen as being spiritual, “the Word” instructs us to be the Salt and Light “and go to the world to influence culture and not to be influenced by culture” (Matthew 5:13-16)
We inspire and influence to transform Spheres of influence in our CULTURE in:
LAKHIZWE SEED DRIVE PROGRAMME
LAKHIZWE FOUNDATION is dedicated to addressing interlocking social issues to help eradicate poverty, idleness, substance abuse and crime by educating, developing skills, harnessing talent, collaborating with the relevant stakeholders, businesses and influential members of the society.
This is by no means an easy feat as the private sector and government alone cannot handle this mammoth task. Therefore, through cooperation, strategic alliances and social engagements, we facilitate CHANGE in this space and we invite you to join us or support us in our people-focused and community-based initiatives.
YOUTH EMPOWERMENT & EARLY CHILDHOOD DEVELOPMENT (ECD)
Our goal is to transform lives at the grassroots level by changing the mindsets, influence behaviour, upskill and to connect people with opportunities by means of promoting volunteerism, awareness, life skills, entrepreneurship, vocational skills, talent nurturing, career counselling and guidance.
We strongly believe that with access to the right resources, people can generally become empowered by their own abilities and gain the confidence to fulfil their potential and integrate into our ecosystem fixed on moving our economy forward whilst adding value in our communities (society).

LAKHIZWE FOUNDATION strives to enhance the quality of people's lives in order to achieve prosperity through Outreach and Fellowship as CHARITY is central to our Society, and Charity begins at home.
