He started a South African oral history archive

The Ichikowitz Family Foundation started the African Oral History Archive, which collects eyewitness accounts of apartheid. The effort resulted in an award-winning documentary, “Plot For Peace,” in 2014. The foundation also funded a program to train dogs to hunt poachers targeting South Africa’s rhinos.

Here are some other initiatives funded by the foundation: Granny & Childheaded Households; Alta Du Toit School; Barefoot No More; BUSKAID Soweto String Ensemble; Theatre Outings for the Aged; Union of Jewish Women; P.O.E.M. (Peace of Educational Mind Foundation); and Brazzaville, Congo field hospital.
