ABOUT EJ JACOBS
The motto of the Nduna Foundation is “Make it Matter.” For EJ Jacobs, the Programme Director of the Foundation, this is more than a motto; it is a guiding principle. Since 2010, Mr. Jacobs has embraced philanthropy beyond simple grantmaking. Through listening to the populations of the areas he hopes to serve, amplifying the voices of those who don’t always have access to the proper audience, strengthening multilateral partnerships, and embracing, as well as offering a fresh set of ideas in areas lacking innovation, Mr. Jacobs and the Nduna Foundation have found success in often ignored or underserved areas.
Focused primarily on conflict and post-conflict regions throughout Africa, the Nduna Foundation works to maintain Human Rights and significantly impact the lives of women and children through strategic partnerships and bold initiatives. Nduna’s partners range from large, but trusted organizations such as Human Rights Watch and UNHCR to more nimble and clandestine groups that include Crisis Action and Refuge Point. Some of the initiatives include support for and collaboration with youth-led and refugee-led programmes.
Before joining the Nduna Foundation, EJ Jacobs was the Editor-in-Chief of Topcoat Magazine.
