Our current projects
The Trust focuses on a few key activities at a time. At the moment our key activities are:
Support for individual pupils with particular needs
In January 2009, an ex-student of Meetse A Bophelo Primary school, having achieved well at the local high school, gained a place at Pretoria University, the first Meetse A Bophelo pupil to do so. She lives in a shack in Mamelodi with her younger brother and has no financial resources of her own. The Trust is assisting her with a small monthly grant to help her to meet day to day expenses and to buy the necessary books for her course.
A pupil at a primary school in Mamelodi was seriously injured in an accident and the family finds it difficult to meet the necessary expenses which enable him to continue his education. The Trust makes a small monthly donation which is administered by the school.
Another pupil shows exceptional promise as an athlete. The family finds it difficult to meet the expenses incurred in travel and equipment which are necessary if she is to reach the highest level of performance. Again, the Trust is making a small contribution which is administered by the school.
