    Higherlife Foundation was founded by Strive and Tsitsi Masiyiwa having identified the drastic developmental and social needs of African communities in the countries where their telecommunications network Econet Wireless International is in operation. Through the establishment of 4 Trusts, each dedicated to a specific area of need they have spearheaded transformation in the lives of thousands of individuals and communities across Southern Africa. Presently operational in Burundi, Zimbabwe, Lesotho and South Africa the Higher Life Foundation Trusts aim to empower individuals steeped in poverty and despair with opportunities for them to succeed in all areas of their lives.

    The END Fund is dedicated to controlling and eliminating neglected tropical diseases. NTDs are diseases of poverty that debilitate, blind, disfigure and cause early death to the world’s poorest people. They are a group of parasitic and bacterial infectious diseases that thrive in conditions of rural poverty, where children and adults don’t have access to clean water and basic sanitation.

    Over one and a half billion people globally are affected by one or more of the most common NTDs, including 800 million children. The END Fund focuses on tackling the five most prevalent NTDs: intestinal worms, schistosomiasis, lymphatic filariasis, trachoma, and river blindness - all of which can be treated by medicines generously donated by pharmaceutical companies for national mass drug administration programs.
