Funders
Funding for Ifa Lethu’s work, particularly operational funding, continues to be a challenge. Sponsorship and funding in the current South African landscape for heritage organisations such as Ifa Lethu, must be seen as being instrumental in development projects, sustainability and creation of entrepreneurs who will take an active role in the economic growth of the country. But to achieve this, Ifa Lethu must raise operational funding to facilitate their work. Our heartfelt thanks go to the following organisations who share our vision:

   
Airport Media (billboard campaign)   Audi South Africa   Andrew J Mellon Foundation
         
   
AusAid   Australian High Commission   Barloworld
