The Fergusons also want to launch a film school for upcoming filmmakers, offer scholarships to students from disadvantaged backgrounds and mentorship programmes, among other things.

“Our vision is to equip them with the tools they need to know about film production and functions related to film, with the aim of building future film industry leaders, producers and actors,” read theirs statement.

The Fergusons join a long list of local celebs with their own foundations.

Some of the media personalities who recently launched their foundations include Somizi Mhlongo-Motaung and his husband Mohale Motaung-Mhlongo (Somhale Foundation), actresses Linda Mtoba (Linda Mtoba Foundation) and Rami Chuene (Rami Chuene Foundation)

Over the years we’ve witnessed industry leaders such as Sbusiso ’DJ Sbu’ Leope, Bonang Matheba, Nomzamo Mbatha, Moeti ‘Mo Flava’ Tsiki, Thabo ‘Tbo Touch’ Molefe lend a helping hand, particularly in funding for educational needs of many South Africans.
