Moloko Jack Maeko Foundation
The baton of our freedom fighters and founding fathers and mothers is for us to move forward as leaders of this generation An important challenge is for all of us as citizens and those who live in this exuberant beautiful country to proactively play our part to sustainably improve the livelihoods of our communities. Freedom Charter as adopted at the Congress of the People, Kliptown, on 26 June 1955; amongst other key compass points also pledges that, „The People Shall Share in the Country’s Wealth!” And also that, „The Land Shall be Shared Among Those Who Work It!
Founder and Chairman of the Jack Maeko Foundation; a patriot, activist, father and leader; grew up being concerned about the challenges that face our communities. Having started as a youth leader in the struggle for liberation and freedom, he decided that we cannot continue with business as usual. The scourge of ills of society, youth self-destruction and societal challenges, moral degeneration, negligence on education, lax attitude towards discipline, discrimination according to disability, gender, race, tribe, sexuality, abuse of women and children, neglect and abuse of the elderly, critical skills shortage, dispossession of land, unemployment, poverty and inequality cannot be tolerated at all. He decided to expand his efforts as an agent of change, in the struggle for Economic Emancipation by stepping up inclusive Radical Socio-Economic Transformation initiatives.
Mr. Moloko Jack Maeko realised that weapons of this “new revolution ”have to be different for us to achieve the desired results. He therefore decided to establish the foundation that will take special care and implement initiatives that will address most of these enemies of progress in an integrated, constructive and unifying manner.
