In the spirit of UBUNTU, Chaplin PR has joined forces with the SA Ubuntu Foundation (SAUF) to assist those less fortunate to achieve their dreams in furthering their education and empowering them
The Problems facing our Youth of today
Through the YOUTH 100 Project our goal is to assist those less fortunate school leavers in furthering their education and to ignite the potential in all students in becoming leaders in their chosen fields
By partnering with Corporates and HC Varsity, our aim is to annually raise R4 million to enable 100 disadvantaged Youths in the Cape Town Metropolitan area with above average Grade 12 results to study further and obtain a one year full qualification certificate.
Through the network of corporates, our objective is to pursue experiential learning opportunities and internships for these students who could in turn one day become potential employees
Those individuals from disadvantaged areas will be identified and selected as candidates whom we feel will benefit from a one year full qualification certificate. The study areas identified that will currently add the greatest value to the students are: Business Management, Finance Management, Marketing Management, Public Relations, HR Management, Supply Chain Management, Educare, Computer Technical Support (incl. A+ and N+), Hospitality and Tourism Management
So How does it work?
Chaplin PR, together with the SAUF, are raising R2 Million by actively involving corporates to sponsor between R1000 and R20000 annually towards the identified students 50% of the course fees. HC Varsity will sponsor the other 50% of the course fees for those youth who have been identified through the Foundation's skills development programme or have been selected by the SAUF.
As a corporate, your sponsorship will be allocated towards paying the 50% value of the course fee. Full qualification certificates average +- R40 000 per annum and include all study material and examination fees.
The SA Ubuntu Foundation will issue your company with an 18A tax deductible donation receipt. Corporates will also be eligible for SED points on their BEE scorecard. Corporates can offer internships or employment opportunities to these sponsored youth. These individuals will benefit from an accredited national or international qualification.

The South African Ubuntu Foundation is committed to overcoming and breaking down the barriers, both within and between individuals and their racial/cultural groupings.
Its approach rests on the strength of Ubuntu. The South African Ubuntu Foundation envision a world in which all people embrace peace, one another's equality; embody the essence and spirit of Ubuntu in their work, family, and community lives; are encouraged and inspired to use their inherent abilities to the fullest, find their passion for, participate and contribute fully in, and benefit fairly from South Africa's growing prosperity.

The Amy Biehl Foundation is a non-profit organisation that offers programmes to develop and empower youth living in the challenged and vulnerable communities within the Western Cape. There are huge inadequacies in the schools in which we work, creating a great need for our programmes. The programmes supplement the shortcomings of the educational system in the townships of South Africa.
The Foundation was named after American student, Amy Biehl, a gifted and dynamic young woman who was committed to making a difference in South Africa. On August 25 1993, Amy Biehl’s life was tragically cut short in an act of political mob violence in the Guguletu Township just outside of Cape Town.
