in the world today 258 million children - 1 out of 5 -
cannot go to school. Lost potential.
women entrepreneurs across
sub-Saharan Africa earn
less than men (34 % less).
girls perform better in most
school subjects than boys.
empowering women entrepreneurs
to send their children to school is simply smart economics .
We have been very fortunate in running our successful conference and event agencies, Motivation and MotivationAfrica.
Traveling for our work and interacting with all levels of society, we have come across many difficult personal and societal situations, particularly in South Africa, a land of hope and a fragile laboratory of tolerance.
Women there, like everywhere, are the backbone of society. Children our future.
We believe in giving back.
So we created ACT to have a structure.
So far, we have financed projects entirely from our personal funds.
We absorb all administrative costs.
