The Foundation


The Foundation

The Weli Mazamisa Foundation is a newly established Non-Profit Organization formed in honor of Professor Mazamisa’s legacy of his love for children and education for every African child.
In setting up the foundation, the Mazamisa family’s intention is to capture his
values and wishes for the African continent by making a lasting impact that
changes people’s lives through responsible educational development and
sustainable self-reliance.

The Foundation also strives to encourage people not to lose hope but claim
their place in all spheres of life through educational development,
empowerment, and providing the necessary resources and mentorship.
Our focus is to mobilize communities, donors, and other relevant stakeholders that would contribute to Professor Mazamisa’s vision.
At Weli Mazamisa Foundation we believe in transformation from poverty to
hope, obstacles to opportunities, and from oppression to triumph.

As Weli Mazamisa Foundation we celebrate the rich diversity of our country
and praise many individuals and organizations who steadfastly remained
committed to the breaking of the cycle of marginalization and poverty in South Africa.
