Make A Difference Leadership Foundation

Make A Difference Leadership Foundation

Founded in 2003 by Francois Pienaar, Make A Difference Leadership Foundation (MAD Leadership Foundation) is a holistic full investment scholarship programme. We focus on leadership development through education with an aim to identify academically talented scholars with leadership potential, who do not have the necessary financial resources, and offer them support in the areas of education, leadership and life-skills development. It is a 9-year personal, financial and comprehensive commitment to each scholar to develop their leadership potential. The MAD Leadership Foundation team consists of professional educators, a clinical psychologist & social worker, volunteers, mentors and staff members who focus on identifying, interviewing, monitoring, mentoring, supporting and encouraging every single individual who is selected to be a MAD Leadership Foundation scholar to help these scholars reach their full potential as South Africa’s future leaders.

We have been making a difference in South Africa for 12 years and we are committed to creating a better future for South Africa and believe that positive change will come from strong future leaders and that their potential needs to be developed through education and mentorship. Invest in MAD Leadership Foundation, and invest in a bright future for South Africa. With your investment we can identify, support, mentor and develop even more deserving future leaders holistically, through education, leadership development, life-skills and wellness programmes.

Join the movement. Be the difference.
