Pule Molalenyane Foundation is a public benefit organisation whose aim is to improve lives by creating opportunities through education, support and care. The Foundation was established in 2017 by its founder, Pule Molalenyane.
Pule Molalenyane Foundation remains an instrument for social change through its strategic partners and a wide network of volunteers. Over the 2 years of its existence, the Foundation has made a significant contribution to the social development of many South Africans. This we achieve by working with many elderly organisations and schools. We also take up cases of people who urgently need assistance in their individual capacity on a balance of evidence.
Together with its broad stakeholders, the Foundation continues to make a difference in the lives of disadvantaged individuals and communities.
Some of the success stories
We hosted a two-hour Young Women’ Symposium at Kagisanong Combined School in Soutpan, 38km north of Bloemfontein. Our audience was female learners from Grade 9 to 12. The purpose was to bring young girls together during women’s month and give them education about challenges women confront in society, and train them on how to navigate through those challenges. It is important to raise awareness and encourage young girls to see life beyond their particular challenges. The panel was constituted by an expert Social Worker, Motivational Speaker, medical practitioner and local Police Commissioner.
We donated 100 tickets for learners of Tsoseletso Secondary School (Bloemfontein) and Sechaba Se Maketse Combined School (Botshabelo) to attend the rugby match between Springboks and England. These two schools are amongst the best public schools in the province and both remain an embodiment of hope and inspiration for all other schools. We strongly believe that the Free State province has got full capability to produce stars across all sporting codes and young kids are our biggest investment. A country that does not invest in its youth is doomed. In picture: Our Patron Mr Molalenyane, Councillor Pulane Mohibidu and Teacher responsible for School Sports Miss Ditedu...

We made a commitment to build a stage for the Harvest Gospel Ministry, we ultimately managed to donate a stage of their choice and from a designer of their choice. We are in the process of paying for the church choir to record their first album. We have copious amount of debt to the Church for inviting us to assist. A special thank you to Mr. Amie Molelekwa who brought us into contact with the church.
We delivered a pair of training shoes to a good Samaritan, Mrs Franscina Phalatsane, of Bloemfontein Citizen Old Age Club. Mrs Phalatsane has dedicated her life to helping old people in the Mangaung area to engage in all manner of sporting codes to keep healthy. The club meets three times a week at Dr Molemela Stadium - formerly known as Seisa Ramabodu - and we have committed to helping her Club grow and reach out to as many old people as possible in the Bloemfontein area. We thank heavens that there are good Samaritans amongst us like Mrs Phalatsane who understand that their privilege is meaningless if it is not used in the service of humanity.
The Foundation was invited to help an indigent family in 7645 Kamohi Street, Rocklands (Bloemfontein).The ward councilor, Ms Pulane Mohibidu, was doing her routine walkabouts in her ward early this week when she discovered this destitute family of an elderly woman who stays with her grandchildren. The ward councilor immediately contacted the foundation for help. The family stayed in an unhygienic four-roomed house and was generally in deplorable conditions. Within two days and with the support from locals, we were able to collect new beds, electric stove, paint, groceries and warm clothes for the elderly woman as an immediate intervention. We will be starting the second phase of our intervention whereupon new wardrobes and kitchen unit will be built for the family. We are also in talks with local contractors to assess the house with a view to revamping it. We are delighted to have organized all these amazing things for the family. It was such a great opportunity for people to come together and contribute the little they have for such a worthy cause”.
The Foundation made a commitment to the community of Kutlwanong (Odendalsrus) that we will pay a sum of R56 852 owed to ESKOM by J.C. Motumi Secondary School. As a consequence of the debt, the electricity supply was cut off and the school was struggling to operate maximally. The Foundation did indeed pay ESKOM and Mr. Pule Molalenyane made a proper hand over to the school. This year marks the centenary celebration of Nelson Mandela and in celebrating the father of our democracy, the Foundation found it befitting to donate to the school. A special thank you to SAMWU employees who contributed an additional R20 000 and SANLAM for also coming on board. We are indebted to your unwavering support and commitment to humanity.
The Foundation celebrated the annual International Mandela Day at the St Charles Lwanga Catholic Church in Botshabelo (Free State). The Nelson Mandela Day celebrations across the world are designed to sustain the legacy of Nelson Mandela and inspire the people to work towards a caring and egalitarian world order. The church was very instrumental in providing support to political activists during apartheid and often served as a safe haven for activists who were sought after by the apartheid government. From the time that Sotho speaking communities were isolated by the Bophuthatswana authority in Thaba Nchu, the church inspired hope in their lives and provided practical support. The church later moved to Botshabelo where Sotho people were given a piece of land to settle. Through interventions from the church, political activists were able to organize and confront the apartheid government pursuant to noble democratic ideals. We celebrated our 67 minutes by preparing a meal for the elderly members of the church as a token of appreciation for the contribution the church made for us to attain the democracy we all enjoy today. Awards were accorded to the church and the priest who was instrumental during the struggle for liberation. We also celebrated with and gave an award to the family of the late Papi 'Katango' Makume who died in exile as an MK member. We wish for a day when all South Africans will learn to celebrate those among us who made enormous sacrifices in order for us to enjoy these freedoms we have today.
