Sukuma Foundation was established to assist those in the community that would like to become involved with impacting the well being of the less fortunate. Sukuma Foundation was established as a recognized B-BBEE level 1 contributor NPC in 2018 to confront the issues of social injustice as experienced to a great extent by communities across the city of Johannesburg.
The organisation’s name was adopted from one of South Africa’s official vernacular languages – iSiZulu – and means ‘Stand Up’. It reveals our commitment to developing our communities by rising up and enhancing the lives of our people to rise up as well.
We function as an umbrella organisation for several initiatives, covering a broad range of developmental issues; community development, education, economic and skills development, disaster relief, and nutrition.
In so doing we aim to impact our communities and rise up for our nation. Through this matrix by functioning as an umbrella organisation, we alleviate the inevitable logistical difficulties that are present, when trying to create individual NPO’s. Instead, our constitution makes provision for the establishment of various projects under one banner, thereby simplifying the process. This in turn enables us to extend the scope of our reach.”
