The AJ Foundation is a registered, non-profit company that focuses on youth development and community upliftment in the Cape metropolitan area.
The foundation was established in 2016 by youth leader and business mentor Jessie Julius and professional soccer player, Cole Alexander. Linton Henry later joined the team and is now serving as a co-director.
What we do
The purpose of forming this organisation was to provide opportunities for young people by giving them access to the much-needed resources that are lacking in many impoverished communities via education, sport and various other platforms. What started as three men who wanted to uplift their community quickly expanded to a team that now consists of 14 members who volunteer their time, skills and resources toward the foundation’s vision.
The AJ Foundation aims to break the cyclical nature of the downtrodden by helping Cape Town youth to realise their own potential.
