Who we are
Our purpose is simple; we aim ‘to be the change we want to see in the world’.
We achieve this by utilising our artistic talents and natural gifts to tell the stories that matter about the issues that are plaguing society / communities / families / individuals.
Our goal is to be a voice for the voiceless.
We believe in giving those who are in need ‘a hand-up NOT a hand-out’ by empowering them to become financially independent and able to ensure their own food security.
We are working with and support four organisations; Matthew Rusike Children's Home, St. Giles Medical Rehabilitation Centre, Helping Hands (supporting orphanages & schools with disabled children) and The Elizabeth Chanakira Cancer Trust.
The Purpose of the auction
The Art of Being Human Foundation has a '100% giver's guarantee'. This means that if a donation or pledge is made for a specific cause we give 100% of that donation or pledge to that specific cause. We do not take out any administration fees (operating costs) from 'specific donations'. However we do have operating costs that need to be met and therefore we have taken the approach of raising funds specifically for The Art of Being Humane that will cover these costs. We do this in three ways; having annual fundraising activities, inviting companies to pledge support (monitory/goods/services) and through social enterprise initiatives where we create merchandise that we sell.
The bachelor auction is one of our annual fundraising events.
