Bokamoso’s journey started in 2008 by several friends who lived together at a University. Doug Laburn, head of Lombard Partnerships (our partner) is the initial founder. The trust is very close to his heart and he remains an active member of the team that works hard to make a difference.
The idea of the trust is based on crowd funding, where individual contributions are combined and mobilized towards the education costs of its beneficiary children. Each donor rallies together 16 friends, each of whom contributes R180 a month via direct debit. Together, the 17 donors help to educate one child. The total (R3 060 per month) pays for a child’s education! This has grown massively from where it began. Today, over 80 children benefit from the assistance of individuals and corporate sponsors.
CN&CO is proud to be a co-sponsor of the 10 year anniversary celebration. Join us for a “Night at the races”. The evening will be jam packed with fun activities including a live concert!
