Many a times celebrities are unable to effectively contribute to good causes as their lives are incredibly busy and simply do not have the time to dedicate to important community projects and good causes.
The establishment of the Celebrities for Good Causes Foundation by Lillian Dube enables celebrities to become actively involved in community initiatives that are close to their own hearts, without the hassle of coordinating such projects themselves.
The Celebrities for Good Causes Foundation will thus leverage not only Lillian Dube’s celebrity status but that of many other fellow celebrities to raise awareness for the challenges facing many communities. One of the most disadvantaged and vulnerable groups in South Africa is the youth, who struggle to fulfil their dreams of completing their education due to many factors. Most children don’t have access to school supplies, books and school shoes. Providing simple things like shoes can make a huge difference in many young people’s lives.
Celebrities for Good Causes Foundation will champion, amongst other, the following causes which tend to impact the development of our children and youth:
| Education | Poverty | Literacy | Disadvantaged Youths | Women Abuse | Substance Abuse | Cancer | HIV/AIDS | Suicide and Depression | Gender Equality | Creative Arts | Parent and Family Support | Homelessness | Voter Education
