The Men of Tomorrow formerly known as Men in the making (UBS)

The Men of Tomorrow is one of the special programs presented by our funders and is focused on young men in the STEP Schools. Mission is to provide programming to cultivate leadership, social awareness and personal growth in young men.

Take a Girl Child to work (UBS & MBSA)

The goal of the Take a Girl Child to Work Day initiative is to “deepen the thinking of the girl child with regard to their infinite roles in society, enhance her self-esteem, inspire and motivate her to reach her full potential and through exposure to diverse careers. Employees from our Sponsors volunteer to be positive role models in assisting the girl child to prepare for the world of work.

Sanitary Wear Hand – over (MBSA)

In conjunction with Dignity Dreams, MBSA sponsors beautiful, feminine sanitary wear which can last up to a year – 2 to STEP School girls who can’t afford them and provide appropriate information regarding menstrual health and hygiene. The initiative does not only empower and give dignity to the girl child, it also emphasizes to the boy child on what girls go through and how special and beautiful they are.

Winter Collection Drive (MBSA)

As a way of giving back to the school communities our Funders organise Winter collection and Food packaging for orphaned and disadvantaged learners. The employees dedicate a day from their busy schedules to hand out uniforms to the needy learners and refurbish the structures of the school where there is need.

CEO Sleep Out

STEP Schools learners get to be involved in the CEO Sleep Out charity initiative in partnership with the Sun International to fight poverty and homelessness, a programme funded by executives who sleep outdoors for one night. Funda Afrika organises a competition amongst STEP schools learners to write a motivational essay as to why they should be selected to participate in the CEO Sleep Out. The winner gets to join our Funding CEO in sleeping outdoors raising funds and, significantly, gaining empathy for the homeless.
