OUR PROGRammes

Ways We Give

“Our well-being, happiness, and success is dependent upon and influenced by the wellbeing, happiness, and success of others.”

Patrice Motsepe & Dr Precious Moloi-Motsepe

Our Founders

In Africa, amidst adversity, people work tirelessly to better their circumstances and the lives of others in their families and broader community.
Gestures of selfless giving and caring for one another is an integral part of what keeps Africa’s people hopeful and enables the continents transformation of tragedy into triumph. Our founders have experienced firsthand the kindness and generosity of others.
Born from their commitment to continue this age-old African culture of Ubuntu, their leadership is dedicated to uplifting others, fostering a brighter future for Africa and the world.
Most of their giving has been private but the need and challenges are great, and we hope that the Motsepe Foundation giving will encourage others in Africa and other emerging economies to give and make the world a better place.
about us

Our Values

We stand upon the shoulders of giants who paved the way

Ubuntu

“A person with ubuntu is affirming of others, does not feel threatened that others are able and good, for he or she has a proper self-assurance that comes from knowing that he or she belongs in a greater whole,” Desmond Tutu.

Integrity

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy,"

Martin Luther King Jr.

Excellence

"Excellence is doing ordinary things extraordinarily well,"

Wangari Maathai.

Passion

"Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it,"

Maya Angelou.

Innovation

"There is no passion to be found playing small - in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living,”

Nelson Mandela.
