Since inception in 2008, our partner Bokamoso Education Trust has impacted the lives of children and their families by providing them with the necessary financial support for an excellent education, as well as support through mentorship for each child. Today the trust proudly funds 69 children, which are enrolled in schools around Johannesburg and Cape Town.

Recently Bokamoso excitingly shared with us that it welcomed five more children to the trust. This is what they had to say in their latest news…

With the help of some significant donor growth we are excited to take on five more children to help give them the necessary start to their lives. The trust now proudly funds 69 children. We are committed to offering all the support they need to become the best that they can be.

A huge and heartfelt thank you to our donors for the continued backing and financial support. This is what keeps us going and growing.

Meet the new addition to the Bokamoso family…

The idea of the trust is based on crowd funding, where individual contributions are combined and mobilised towards the education costs of its beneficiary children. 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.
