Sibusiso Sithole came from a very poor background, growing up without the love and support of a father
and watching his mother struggle to keep food on the table whilst his grandparents gave a hand in bringing him up.
His grandfather instilled some sound principles in Sibusiso and ensured that he went to school, but due to financial constraints Sibusiso had to drop out of Technical School in 1999. During 2000 a car accident caused a debilitating spinal injury which took a year to heal. During this time he did a three month stint as a Taxi driver, before following
his dream to open his own business - SIBUSISIWE ELECTRICAL - which he built up to its present day success.
But he never forgot where he came from and a deep desire to help the less fortunate brought about SIBUSISIWE FOUNDATION.
Linking ‘hands’ with a group of like-minded business people of the region, who were already assisting impoverished and needy people in various ways; SIBUSISIWE FOUNDATION was established in 2007; and was formally registered as a Non-Profit Organisation (NPO) in 2010.
Situations of dire need and poverty are brought to the attention of SIBUSISIWE FOUNDATION and the Executive Committee jointly analyse each case before a decision is reached whether and how to help.
Funding is acquired mainly from member contributions; but donations are welcomed from anyone who would like to contribute. People who would like to get actively involved helping with projects or donations of items and products required for projects are likewise very welcome.
