Make A Difference Leadership Foundation (MAD Leadership Foundation) was formed in 2003 by Francois Pienaar. MAD focuses on leadership development through education: the approach is to identify academically talented scholars with leadership potential, who do not have the necessary financial resources, and offer them support in the areas of education, leadership, wellness and life-skills development. They comprehensively invest in their scholars’ academic, wellness, life-skills, mentorship and leadership journeys, ensuring that through the 9+ years they are on the Scholarship Programme, they are given every opportunity to reach their full potential as South Africa’s future leaders.

While most wildlife conservation groups focus on scientific studies and anti-poaching efforts, WildAid works to reduce global consumption of wildlife products and to increase local support for conservation efforts.We also work with governments and partners to protect fragile marine reserves from illegal fishing and shark finning, to enhance public and political will for anti-poaching efforts, and to reduce climate change impacts.
