OUR PURPOSE

To foster the development of an inclusive society that is empowered.

WHO WE ARE

The Cyril Ramaphosa Foundation is an independent non-profit organisation that improves lives and creates opportunities through education and enterprise development.

Formerly known as Shanduka Foundation, it was established in 2004 by Shanduka Group and its founder Cyril Ramaphosa.

In 2015 the foundation changed its name to Cyril Ramaphosa Foundation and became an independent organisation that continues to fulfil its mandate.

The Cyril Ramaphosa Foundation remains a partner of choice for social change through Adopt-a-School Foundation, Kagiso Shanduka Trust, Cyril Ramaphosa Education Trust and Shanduka Black Umbrellas.

Over the 13 years of its existence, first as Shanduka Foundation and now as Cyril Ramaphosa Foundation, it has had a meaningful impact on economic and social development in South Africa. Together with its partners, it will continue to make a difference in the lives and circumstances of so many more.
