In hopes of earning $972,000 dollars, Andrew Rolfe worked hard at chairman of the Ubuntu Fund. He worked hard to put together a gala that would bring more than 300 guests to an event to help raise funds to build a new campus in South Africa. It is here that underprivileged children are not afforded with the right tools and the right knowledge to better themselves later in life. With the help of the Ubuntu fund, more kids are able to have a brighter future. With the help of the attendees, the night was a success and the money was earned.
With the money that was earned the night of the gala, a new campus is going to be built with a pediatric division on site. This allows for children to see doctors and nurses while in school and while under the care of the campus. This not only helps them to lead better lives but to also be healthier where they may not have been previously. When it came to the speakers of the evening, the Ubuntu Fund brought in 2 students who attended campus prior to being successful in their lives to speak to the attendees of the evening. It was with their help that the fund was able to gain the money it needed to build the new campus.
