More about the Allan Gray Orbis Foundation:
The Allan Gray Orbis Foundation was created in 2005 as part of Dr. Allan Gray’s (the Founder’s) vision to make a sustainable, long-term contribution to Southern Africa by nurturing the emerging entrepreneurial potential from the region. The Foundation’s vision is therefore, to develop high impact entrepreneurs who will create sustainable businesses that shall contribute to a reduction in unemployment in the country.
The Allan Gray Orbis Foundation (Namibia), a registered Trust, was established in 2009 with the purpose of advancing broad-based economic empowerment in Namibia by providing comprehensive financial support to learners, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds, who wish to become entrepreneurs. The Foundation gives them the appropriate exposure to tertiary education and/or training as well as providing entrepreneurial and leadership programmes. This is intended to prepare those who aspire and demonstrate the ability to be high impact entrepreneurs. For more information visit https://www.allangrayorbis.org
