The Foundation is the charitable arm of the Pritchard Investment Trust and the Entelect Group of Companies, which includes charity-owned spin-off companies, MyActive Online and ServeSA Trading.
When Entelect was founded in 2001 by Charles Pritchard, his vision was for Entelect to be the world’s best software engineering company but, equally importantly, he wanted to use these blessings to help to uplift those in need – in particular, the destitute and marginalised. By the grace of God, as the Entelect Group of companies grew, so too did The Foundation. In the early years, The Foundation primarily offered financial and educational support to those in need. Feeding schemes were started soon after, and the first shelter home was opened in 2014. Today, The Foundation funds and operates rehabilitation and shelter homes for men, women and children; home schools; counselling and prayer support centres; skills training centres; feeding schemes and farming initiatives to help with the feeding of local communities in need. The Foundation’s not-for-profit operational entities under which these initiatives take place are the Light of Hope Homes and Schools, ServeSA Communities and the Alpha and Omega Mission. The Foundation also partners with various other charities that are doing good work in their communities and offers educational or social support grants to those in need.
Our motto has always been “you cannot outsource love” so, wherever possible, we offer not only financial assistance but on the ground support too: housing, feeding, educating and uplifting those who are in need.
