At the Ovie Brume Foundation, we are always excited by the opportunity of partnering with you.  We welcome support from individuals, organisations and businesses interested in any of the following areas:

Charity Shop Ambassadors

As a Charity Shop Ambassador, you and your organisation can champion an in-house donation drive of gently used items for our monthly charity shop. Campaign to increase donations towards our monthly, quarterly and Christmas Bazaar sales. As an ambassador of this campaign your role will include: • Creating awareness about the Ovie Brume Foundation’s Charity Shop • Recruiting new donors through your network of friends and corporate organisations

Conversation Cafes

A conversation cafe is an event where people gather to share conversation around a specific topic. Less formal than debates, they are aimed at providing a comfortable environment in which to discuss issues. Volunteer as a lead speaker on a topic you are comfortable discussing in a small group and share your life experience with our youth audience. ‘An hour of conversation is worth a volume of letters’. Thomas Jefferson to John Adams

Life Skills Facilitators

Life skills are the tools young people need to succeed in life that are not taught in school. They are aimed at developing young people’s knowledge, attitudes, beliefs, and sense of responsibility and health consciousness. Our classes cover understanding and clarifying values, decision-making, self esteem, peer pressure and presentation skills and it encourages peer education, whereby well-trained and motivated young people undertake informal or organized educational activities.

Project No Excuses

We need individuals and corporate sponsors for this holistic scholarship project. This is a long-term commitment to support either one or more children. Sponsorship is provided annually through the Ovie Brume Foundation, who in turn acts as a mediator between the sponsor and the child. The sponsor is expected to meet with the child every quarter and plan at least one chaperoned fun day out a year.

Literacy and IT Facilitators

Our literacy and IT classes are held throughout the year and we are always looking for volunteers to facilitate these sessions, using structured curricula. As all our new members undergo this training, classes consist of 15 to 20 in-school children per training session held during school terms.

Mobile Reading Facilitators

Have you ever reviewed children’s books? We need guest reviewers of books the students have read. The reviews are lively and interactive sessions, where ideas and lessons learnt from the book are shared. We are looking for facilitators to read to small groups of children and help track comprehension, new words learnt and conduct summary writing sessions.


We are currently seeking partnerships with local and multi-national IT companies to provide training resources as well as software for our computer literacy programme.

Sports for Development

Can you use sports to teach life skills, time management and other important life issues to adolescents? Join our sports for development sessions using taekwondo and swimming to teach important skills and support the class with resources.

Job Placements

This initiative is focussed on giving beneficiaries the opportunity to network and build relationships with individuals who can serve as personal and career resources. We expect job placements to provide a glimpse of professional life and instil a greater sense of responsibility in participants.
