Mission

To improve the quality of life for all, including the unemployed, women, youth, workers and marginalised communities in South Africa

To support projects that have the potential to assist beneficiaries in becoming self-reliant

To build non-racialism in South Africa, promote respect for diversity and encourage all races and all people of different faiths and cultures to move forward

Ubuntu

Compelled by the African philosophy of Ubuntu – which recognises the interconnectedness of humanity – the Motsepe Foundation was established by Dr Patrice Motsepe and Dr Precious Moloi-Motsepe in 1999. This simple word encapsulates the African concept of giving and caring for our neighbours and other members of our community. This selfless and compassionate quality is part of the age-old African culture and expresses the core value of humanity as goodness to our fellow men. The act of giving back has been and still is an integral part of our moral duty and collective responsibility. It is a concept that has held African families and communities together for generations, despite the continent’s many challenges. The Foundation is proud to pass it on to the next generation
