Bulichule - Student support Management

Established in 2006 and based in Johannesburg, Bulichule is a 100% black female owned and administered company. Operating nationally, Bulichule is structured to deliver new and innovative tailored customer services in a timely and cost effective manner.

Some 11 years ago, Linda Ngambu, now the Managing Director of Bulichule, was forced out of employment through unfair dismissal. ‘I had two mouths to feed, bills to pay and it was hard to conceptualise what I was going through. I am grateful to those that contributed to my unemployment as I would not have achieved my purpose in life of giving back to the community,’ she says.

‘Through desperately trying to find employment, which was not coming fast enough for me to put bread on the table for my children, I opened a company not knowing what services I would offer my potential clients. After a good soul searching of my activities while I was a Human Resources Manager, I realised what I enjoyed the most was being involved with a student support management programme,’ she notes. That is when Bulichule Training & Consulting was born.

‘Through Bulichule’s efforts and willing donors we have managed to support young adults who are thirsty for education but do not have means to further their education. Our concept is simple, “to alleviate poverty through education”. This can be achieved through the CSI initiatives that are aligned with companies/organisations’ strategic plans of changing the education dynamics of this country. We do not change or take away existing processes from these companies, but merely add value by means of visibility, support and ensuring companies get returns on their investments.’
