Bokamoso Education Trust plays an important role in uplifting underprivileged youth through education. Now in its 10th year, Bokamoso has grown to support over 50 children (Grade 000 to 12) who benefit from the assistance of generous individuals and corporate sponsors.
In its commitment to provide each child with an excellent education, Bokamoso has partnered with exceptional schools across the country, where many of the kids are pursuing their education. The trust is proud of the kids as they all grow to become amazing contributors to society, adding value to this country in a positive and meaningful way.
To celebrate another year of dedication to improving these children’s lives, Bokamoso hosted a picnic, on Saturday, 17 November 2018. It was a beautiful day out at George Hay park in Parkview.
This exciting day was enjoyed by the children, parents, donors, mentors, Bokamoso staff and trustees. It was filled with hearty meals and fun activities for everyone to enjoy.
The CEO of Bokamoso, Cathrine du Toit welcomed the guests, who was then followed Graeme Marais, the co-founder of the Trust. Graeme thanked everyone for their continued support and encouraged the kids to keep giving all their best as their future is so important. He also thanked their parents for raising such exceptional kids. Brandon Dube (beneficiary) spoke on behalf of kids, expressing his gratitude for the Trust and all the love and support he receives.
As if the day couldn’t get any better, the children were each presented with unique Santa gift bags, which had clothing, toiletry bags, books and educational toys specific to gender and age group.
They also held and award ceremony for achievers who received certificates of recognition.
“It was awesome! The kids loved it and all their spoils.We had an amazing turnout and support,” comments Cathrine.
