Beth Honig

Director, Ubuntu Pathways, UK

Social Impact Member

I am a conduit for ‘Ubuntu’, the South African philosophy of our shared humanity – the idea that I am because you are.

I’M PASSIONATE ABOUT

Access to quality healthcare and education is a right, not a privilege – we must create a level playing field for disadvantaged communities. South Africa has my heart, and I am passionate about proving that a child’s birthplace in the townships of Port Elizabeth should not determine their future. When provided with the same care, resources, and opportunities that every child deserves, Ubuntu’s scholars have become lecturers, entrepreneurs, youth skills trainers, and more––shaping South Africa’s next generation into one overflowing with promise, resilience, and confidence. This is the lifelong, grassroots, and sustainable change that I am committed to.

YOU CAN HELP ME BY

Ask me about Ubuntu Pathways’ life-saving work, or support our Emergency COVID-19 Response to help over 2,000 children and their families get through this truly life-threatening situation in the short- and long-term. We serve a disproportionately vulnerable population, including clients living with HIV, immuno-compromised children, and elderly heads of households. Social distancing is a luxury not afforded to those living in townships. South Africa’s lockdown has seen crippling unemployment, life-threatening food insecurity, and unfathomable domestic abuse soar overnight. COVID-19 has the potential to absolutely ravage the most disadvantaged. Donate, launch a peer-to-peer fundraiser, or spread the word about our work!
