“EMPOWERING WOMEN AND GIRLS
CREATES GLOBAL PROSPERITY “
While significant progress has been made across numerous fronts in most countries, gender equality for African women and girls is still far from satisfactory.
The Motsepe Foundation’s support for the achievement of this Sustainable Development Goal 5 is focused on four key areas:
- Information in the form of the Little Black Book to empower women;
- Gender responsive budgeting to ensure that women’s needs are accounted for in provincial and national processes;
- STEM education to promote the participation and retention of women in STEM subjects within the education value chain;
- Women’s summits to elevate and discuss issues that accelerate women empowerment and gender balance.
Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world
Our belief is that South Africa’s youth are the next generation of leaders, drivers of innovation and economic development. This belief underpins our investment in education, particularly in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
Encourage young people to channel energy and free time into constructive, positive activities.
MUSIC AND ARTS
As an integral part of youth education and personal development, sport, music & art helps to build both character and confidence, thereby preparing young people to meet the challenges of a competitive world.
The Motsepe Foundation has committed to a 10 year partnership with the Department of Basic Education. The agreement covers the following areas: ABC Motsepe League, Kay Motsepe Schools Cup – Football and Netball, ABC Motsepe Schools Eisteddfod
