Financial Investment

With its work aligned to national and global priorities such as the National Development Plan, Mzanzi's Golden Economy, the Green Economy and the Millennium Development Goals, the Ifa Lethu Foundation holds impeccable credentials nationally as well as in countries such as Australia, the United Kingdom, and Chile.

Encouraged by these results, the changed lives and the contributions to the economic developments of individuals, communities and the country, in 2014 Ifa Lethu took its first steps into the investment arena. The networks created by the Foundation during its activities both locally and globally, have raised a keen awareness of the economic
opportunities available to investors in South Africa. Our country is a fruit ripe for investment in all sectors.
After 20 years of democracy, we are producing business leaders of world-class standard, and have an infrastructure to assist investors. Positioning the work of the Foundation under financial investment, proves beneficial for Ifa Lethu as encouraging greater investment in South Africa would mean more employment opportunities for youth in the country. This finds synergy with the objectives of Ifa Lethu's poverty alleviation and employment initiatives.
This is new ground for the Foundation and we see real synergy between our development programmes and attracting financial investors.

Ifa Lethu Takes London


“We have been planning our 20 Years of Democracy programme for almost three years,” says Ifa Lethu CEO Dr Narissa Ramdhani. “The London events in the first week of September 2014 were our highlights. These events represented a vision that began three years ago - a vision to take the message of the power of South Africa’s cultural heritage sector to the world.”
