In 2002 The Tshepo Trust was established by a small group of private individuals with the intention of uplifting disadvantaged South Africans who demonstrate promise and ability.
The Trust focuses on supporting our beneficiaries through the combination of financial compensation, mentorship and psychosocial guidance, funding each individual’s academic career alongside providing them with the mental and emotional support required to complete their studies.
In essence, we pride ourselves on being a small organization which provides personal, one-to-one support for each individual, in a way that best suits their unique needs.
The Trust is currently supporting 26 individuals with studies ranging from university degrees to adult skills training diplomas. We have helped provide an education to over 70 deserving individuals and has disbursed just under a million rand to date. This work has been a resounding success, with our involvement having significant impact on the lives of every one of our beneficiaries.
As part of the philosophy of the Trust, and to maintain a sense of community and family, we have a ‘Pay it Forward’ approach that encourages past beneficiaries to give back to the organization by way of mentoring, group participation and guidance, at such a time as they are ready to do so.
Our beneficiaries continue to grow from strength to strength because of this personal approach and we are thrilled to back them through various phases of their lives.
We are proud of our Tshepo Trust family, and we hope to share more of our journey with you!
