In the heart of Mthatha, the Hollywood Foundation continues to weave a tapestry of positive change through their impactful CSI initiatives. Their unwavering commitment to uplifting communities and championing positive change has found an ally in Ubuntu Restoration, a beacon of hope established in 2017. The Ubuntu Restoration programme, fuelled by a mission to restore dignity to the less fortunate, aligns seamlessly with the Hollywood Foundation’s vision for a better world.
The Ubuntu Restoration initiative recognises the profound impact of social ills like drugs and alcohol abuse on the futures of young individuals. In a concerted effort to combat these challenges, the programme imparts a set of five guiding principles: responsibility, honesty, kindness, and respect. These principles form the foundation upon which Ubuntu Restoration seeks to restore the essence of Ubuntu – a shared humanity. In the face of a pervasive Gender-Based Violence (GBV) crisis in the community, Ubuntu Restoration stands tall as a haven for vulnerable young people.
In a remarkable display of solidarity, the Hollywood Foundation’s Purple Team recently paid a visit to Ubuntu Restoration on 12 December 2023. Bearing gifts that promise to make a lasting impact. The Purple Team delivered a generous contribution comprising kitchen appliances, cookware, children’s furniture, and educational toys. This demonstration of kindness and generosity showcases the Hollywood Foundation’s commitment to supporting organisations that share a common goal of making a positive difference in the lives of those in need.
Ms. Nikelwa, the Director at Ubuntu Restoration, expressed her overwhelming excitement and gratitude for the Hollywood Foundation’s contribution. She remarked, “The children that we serve, and the homeless will benefit greatly from this generous contribution.”
The Hollywood Foundation’s CSI initiatives, manifested through such impactful gestures, serve as a testament to the transformative power of collective action and compassion. As we witness the ripple effect of these endeavours, it becomes evident that the Hollywood Foundation is changing lives and shaping a future where hope and opportunity abound.
