The Motsepe Foundation has already allocated R200 million to the 23 District Municipality/Metro – Motsepe Foundation Development Forums in the nine Provinces of South Africa for education, Religious Organisations, Worker Organisations and Women-owned Enterprises, and also Traditional Authorities, Youth-owned Enterprises, Sports, Music, Arts and other Charitable Organisations.A further R100 million has been allocated to other funding projects in South Africa and the rest of the African continent.
The Motsepe Foundation will visit all the 9 Provinces in South Africa and hold meetings at all the 23 District Municipality/Metro – Motsepe Foundation Development Forums in South Africa and establish three new District Municipality/Metro – Motsepe Foundation Development Forums in KwaZulu Natal, Gauteng and the Eastern Cape and will also allocate R30 million (R10 million each) to the three newly established District Municipality/Metro-Motsepe Foundation Development Forums.
The Founder and Chairman of the Motsepe Foundation, Mr Patrice Motsepe said:
“Millions of South Africans are poor, unemployed and do not participate or benefit from the development and growth of the economy. The Motsepe Foundation is committed to continue making a humble contribution to the improvement and upliftment of their living conditions and lifestyles.
We will once more visit all the 23 District Municipality/Metro – Motsepe Foundation Development Forums in South Africa to conduct meetings with the local residents and other stakeholders to:
– evaluate the progress and impact of the projects that were initiated and funded since the formation of each District Municipality/Metro – Motsepe Foundation Development Forum and
– discuss the new projects that may be funded with the remainder of the funding that has been allocated to each District Municipality/Metro – Motsepe Foundation Development Forum.
“We knew that there would be challenges associated with the District Municipality/Metro – Motsepe Foundation Development Forums identifying and recommending projects for funding but we were keen to empower the local communities to take ownership of their development and upliftment processes and initiatives.”
