With all of the negative news making its daily rounds within the media circles, it is a welcomed relief to read some positive stories taking place. In light of the recent allegations of fraud within a banking institution and the air of tension gripping the nation, reading a story that restores your faith in our ability to reach beyond ourselves and accomplish good should become a daily ritual for every citizen at the moment. Though those types of stories are far and few between highlighting the importance of the latest piece about the charitable non-profit, the Ubuntu Fund, published by the Financial Times.
The excellent writing staff at the Financial Times were able to catch up with the founder of the non-profit to discuss how the non-profit is not only making an impact on the world at large but also within the world of charitable organizations.
The entire piece captures a portion of charitable donations that for some may come as a surprise, as the relationships between donors and the recipients of their charitable gifts come with quite a few restrictions. Often set in place to ensure the gift is used well, these restrictions have at times become an obstacle for the organizations executing the will of the donors.
This environment is nowhere to be found within the Ubuntu Fund, in no small part due to the excellence of its board members such as Andrew Rolfe. As the charitable non-profit has taken a more personal approach to its philanthropic work.
The writers at the Financial Times were able to produce a story that simultaneously was engaging and certainly eye-opening while shining a light on the good work still being accomplished across the world despite the current political and national tensions felt across the globe.
