By collaborating with educational, youth and arts organisations we share the benefits of our financial and managerial expertise.
Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund
Maitland is a Lifetime Founder Club Member of the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund. In 1996 we set up the UK affiliate for the fund to which we provide financial support, office space and infrastructure services. Our lawyers act on a pro bono basis for the fund. Kathi Scott, NMCF Executive Director UK, shares our involvement in the accompanying video.
Khulisa Social Solutions
We have partnered with Khulisa Social Solutions on a global mentorship programme which aims to identify challenges within Luphisi, a rural town in Mpumalanga, South Africa, and engage with its youth to find solutions and initiate action plans to overcome these challenges.
In addition to the mentorship programme, Maitland staff members in Cape Town also volunteer to work with Khulisa Streetscapes which focusses its efforts on building up forgotten members of society through providing opportunities to work in their inner city vegetable and herb gardens.
The Ditikeni Trust owns 10% of our South African fund services business. The financial benefits of this trust flow to 22 non-profit beneficiary organisations operating in South African rural communities.
