What is the Ubuntu Fund?
The Ubuntu Education Foundation is a non-profit organization in Port Elizabeth, Africa, which helps to provide better education and future for the people. In the Ubuntu Foundation there are more than 400,000 orphaned, vulnerable, and HIV positive children; their mission is to provide health services, and educational resources.
Significant Changes, Positive Outcome
One of the best decisions Andrew Rolfe, and his team have made is to not let massive donors of Ubuntu Fund put restrictions on where the money is going; Andrew firmly believes that the children can benefit way more when there are no restrictions. He felt like the money was coming through but it was not making the positive change he really wanted. Now, the main determinate is to keep the donation money running in general for the foundation; to help make quicker and fascinating results in the education, and health on children in Africa.
Andrew Rolfe may be one of the best choices for Ubuntu Fund, demonstrating that he really is focusing on the future not only for the United States, but for different places in the world like Africa; every country or place in the world deserves an opportunity to grow, and Andrew is aware of it.
Many direct selling opportunities are fraudulent, to some degree, and end up being a disappointment to the people who are looking for a legitimate way of making money. The Traveling Vineyard is a legitimate way for people, who are looking for ways to work for themselves, to make whatever amount of money they want to make. There are no minimum sales to perform each month. Each wine guide is in control of their own hours, participation, and amount of success they want to achieve.
The entrepreneur mindset is necessary, because hard work is important to building a clientele of each wine guide. Wine is a product that needs replacing often. At every party held, the sales will be commissioned depending on how many sales were made, up to 35%.

With great customer service skills every wine guide should be able to continuously make appointments for another wine party. Of course his/her sales will depend on their own time, energy, and, goals. Each wine guide will also builds a team of people who they teach to run successful wine parties. They will make a percentage of wine sales from their team members as well.
In order to get started, the wine guide will purchase a Success Kit for $189. This will include everything the wine guide needs to be successful for two parties. If these two parties make enough sales the Traveling Vineyard will credit the wine guide the tasting wines for the following party, each time. Otherwise each tasting set is $75.
