Our Bursary Program aims to empower these individuals in impoverished communities to break the cycle of poverty through higher education. We believe that every child, no matter how destitute the environment in which they live, is entitled to the opportunity to dream, to experience freedom, hope and to be given the chance to become a successful leader, and in turn, assist in improving the livelihoods of the poor.
Our Bursary Program rewards underprivileged students for exceptional academic achievement with full bursaries to study at any South African university.
The Foundation’s education and career development projects are hinged on our mission to empower people in impoverished communities – creating new, sustainably positive realities and promising futures for those we assist.
Community development is integral to poverty alleviation. Livelihood challenges are a distressful daily reality for most indigent communities. A lack of resources and opportunities for improvement prevent those resident in such communities from creating a better life for themselves and, subsequently, for their families and communities.
Our strategy manifests in identifying innovative projects that address challenges in these communities and sustainably empowering individuals to elevate their people from the shackles of poverty.
According to the Department of Statistics South Africa, a staggering 62,1% of children aged 0 -17 years are multidimensionally poor in South Africa.
