“There’s nothing more rewarding than seeing [youth] lives and careers take off”
– Gilbert Pooley
Every week we discover a variety of organisations dedicated to the development of the youth, owner-managed businesses and households in South Africa. It is one of our pleasures to be a part of an industry that assists under-valued youth and owner-managed businesses help themselves.
At the Gryphon Foundation, we sculpt potential and vision into passion and purpose that opens doors to active economic participation in order to generate a legacy for future generations. We source and deploy funds that support job creation and enterprise development programmes that stimulates the growth of local economies.
One way in which we source funds is through our Re-Energize with Passion and Purpose Fundraiser Series. We are fully aware that the youth are capable change agents, modern-day heroes ready to make a serious impact on the world and we want to leave a legacy that support their work. When we launched our fundraiser series it was a no-brainer that all proceeds made through the fundraiser would be used to place unemployed youth in owner-managed businesses.
In a previous newsletter we discussed how as conscious leaders it is up to us to create and hold space for the youth to practice skills for the shared benefit to all. This week we call on you to pause and appreciate the list of things below you can do with the Foundation to create and hold space for the independent, innovative value creators in South Africa.
