As we celebrate Human Rights day, we are also reminded that education is a fundamental right for the full enjoyment of most other human rights. We need to ensure that our children have a solid education – this, to help them realise their full potential and to better equip them for the future.

Giving our kids education is the best investment we can make and we are proud to say that our friends at Bokamoso Education Trust have been actively involved in helping secure a future of at least one child.

Bokamoso Education Trust provides the necessary financial support through a crowd funding concept. From as little as R200 a month, a donor can rally together 16 friends, each of whom contributes R200 a month via direct debit. Together, the 17 donors will help to educate one child. The total (R3 060 per month) pays for a child’s education.

In light of the recent success stories, Bokamoso received a motivation letter from a parent asking for funding towards her little girl, Minenhle’s education. Minenhle, is a 3 year old girl born with Achondroplasia (also known as “dwarfism”), which was inherited from her mother, Modiegi Molebatsi. Although this condition may present Minenhle with a lot of challenges, she personifies the saying: “dynamites come in small packages”.
