We have centered this program around children who do not have families of close relatives to care for them, but also taking into consideration those individuals who have families but lack the resources. We strongly believe in a famous proverb that says “Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man how to fish and you feed him for a lifetime”, hence we facilitate one-on-ones once off, monthly contributions or lifetime financial donations and sponsorships for children to help them afford top-quality education in order to become fit leaders of tomorrow. It is our responsibility to serve and preserve the next generation, the future of nations.
We design and facilitate skills development programs, arrange school bursaries and facilitate work placements. Echoing the words of former President of South Africa “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” – Nelson Mandela
One of our long-term goals is having our own school where excellence is one of the primary values.

My name is Lebogang Sedumedi, I am an educational bursary holder from the AL Foundation since 2018.
I have wanted to further my studies but could not be due to financial constraints. Losing my mother at the age of seventeen forced me to step in and take care of my sister and grandmother. The AL Foundation ushered me into a future of possibilities by granting this opportunity.
