Unity in Africa Foundation is the sole beneficiary of the StoneHouse Capital Zuurberg Challenge. The Foundation focuses specifically on supporting a range of educational projects from early childhood development through tertiary education. Corporates investing their SED funding with the Foundation enables the Foundation to identify credible projects for social investment. Proceeds from the StoneHouse Capital Zuurberg Challenge funds currently disadvantaged people in the Addo community.
The Foundation is assisting with the logistics of the event and providing volunteers from one of their successful initiatives, the Student Volunteer Programme in partnership with the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University. Student volunteers will marshal and provide assistance for the entire weekend. The volunteers, which are pooled from the university, have each been selected for their dedication to community outreach and their passion for helping others. The Foundation offers a structured community framework for these students who act as volunteer facilitators providing homework assistance, sports coaching, remedial maths and English literacy classes and countless opportunities to assist beneficiaries with gardening, painting and maintenance. Each quarter student volunteers also attend beach clean-ups and get the opportunity to spend the morning bonding with learners from one of our beneficiaries. Be on the lookout for these up and coming youths as they will be on duty throughout the weekend in support of the event to ensure that you have a memorable weekend.
