Who we are


a Little bit more on how we got started…

South Africa is a land of diversity, contradictions, passion, and courage. It is a frontier of limitless opportunities, unprecedented change as well as certain challenges. It is therefore vital that the children of today are adequately equipped to endure and thrive in such environment in order for them to become the promising leaders of tomorrow.


Education is essential in uplifting the underprivileged youth of this nation and to provide them with an exceptional opportunity to not only improve their own livelihood, but to uplift that of their family and their community.


Bokamoso Education Trust believes that everyone can make a significant difference to the future of this beautiful country. It provides a vehicle in which modest individual contributions are combined and mobilized towards the educational costs of its beneficiary children.


The Bokamoso Education Trust enables people, who may not have the individual resources necessary, to support the schooling of a disadvantaged child. Through the collective donations of individuals, as well as corporations, Bokamoso Education Trust is able to activate the financial muscle required to provide its beneficiary children with an education and gives these children the necessary start to their lives.


The Bokamoso Education Trust’s primary vision is to provide the necessary financial support for each child’s education (Grade 000 to 12). Secondary to this, we will facilitate the opportunity for donors to take an active and personal role in the child’s development through mentorship should they wish to do so.
