    Welcome to
    Bokamoso Education Trust

     We exist to turn children’s dreams into reality.

     We do this by providing the necessary financial support for an excellent education. We also provide additional support through on-going personal interaction and mentorship for each child.

     

    We believe that an excellent holistic education is a vital element in providing each child with the necessary grounding to make consistently good decisions for their well-being and ultimately grow into a responsible citizen who can positively contribute to the development of South Africa. We believe that on our own it may be difficult to make a difference but every little bit helps and through a community of donors we can be a catalyst for great change.

    “We are really getting on well! The highlight was when I took her to Spur and we enjoyed a meal together and then she played with other kids on the trampoline, she really enjoyed herself and didn’t want to leave ;-). I have visited her when her friend and/or her brother have also been at the school and she has been happy to share my attention and her goodies that we use to colour-in or play together with. She really is a lovely child!

    Adilia Mentor to Memory

    I think we’re developing a good relationship over time. She trusts now that I’ll be there. I’ve kept the sessions quite casual, mostly just seeing what comes up for us to do. We’ve been to the library, art gallery and walked a bit, played scrabble or just talked, I guided her with a bit of writing. We were both pleased to see each other when she came back from her last holiday.”

    Nina mentor to Snamile

    Brandon has reminded me of my youth and the many obstacles young boys face today, long after I had grown up and forgotten those problems only to replace them with grown up issues. Being a part of the program has reminded me that there are young kids out there who are the future leaders, engineers, doctors, fire fighters & police men & women, and being a mentor means YOU get a chance to positively guide & influence the minds of the next generation as oppose to letting the best opportunity we have at turning our country & quality of life around slip away.

    Lushen mentor to Brandon

    “I feel really privileged to be able to share in the life of my little Mentee. She makes my heart warm and my soul sing and reminds me of how it’s our primary duty as adults to take care of and protect our youth. We must prepare them for what life may send their way and give them the tools to cope and make decisions. Thank you for this wonderful opportunity!”

    What you can do

     

    What you can do  

    There are a number of ways to get involved:

     

    Become a donor

     

    In order to support a child, we look to raise R4560 a month (19 donors X R240 p/m, increasing annually with inflation) for the 15 years of their education from Gr000 – Gr12 and a Tertiary Education in line with a child’s ability and interests.

     

    As we look to support a growing number of children,
    you can contribute as a donor in one of two ways:

     

    1. Regular monthly contributions
    (corporate or individual)

     

    For as little as R240 a month, you can sign up as a regular donor. If you are based in South Africa, the easiest way to sign up is by completing the following form.

    2. Basic essentials such as food and shelter are guaranteed for the child in the foreseeable future.

Furthermore, Deloitte have agreed to be our auditors. The Deloitte Foundation has been involved in the process right from the start and has given the Trust financial support. They fully support this Trust based on the fact that there is no such conflict of interest.

It is therefore vital that the children of today are adequately equipped to endure and thrive in such an 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 as well as Tertiary).

    We believe that education is not only a fundamental right to all, but that it is essential in uplifting the youth of South Africa.

    Education provides by far the best opportunity for children to improve their lives, and those of their families and communities. This philosophy was proven when a group of university friends, driven by this belief, pulled together to fund the education of a child.

    The dramatic improvement in that one child’s confidence and outlook on the future, inspired these university friends to expand their network of personal and corporate donors.

    The Bokamoso Education Trust was born, through which donor’s contributions are accumulated and set towards the educational expenses of disadvantaged children.

    Our goal is to help educate as many children as possible – children who would otherwise not have had the opportunity to go to school. We commit to providing the necessary financial support throughout each child’s education (Grade 000 to 12). The Trust also provides each donor the opportunity to take an active role in the child’s development through mentorship, should the donor wish to do so.

    Bokamoso UK was formally established and registered with the UK Charities Commission in 2012. Funds raised from corporate and private donors in the UK are fully committed to the education of children in South Africa. We work closely with the South African Bokamoso Trust to select new beneficiaries and share their progress with our donors.

    The more donations we receive, the more children’s lives can be transformed by the gift of education. So please contact us at info@bokamostrust.org.uk if you think you may be able to help. We will guide you through the simple process of becoming a monthly donor or making a single contribution to the Trust.

    Pete Goldworthy delivers a speech at My Father’s Coat fundraising evening

    On 21 March 2019, Orbis Investments hosted a talk, ‘My Father’s Coat’ by Michael Charton – a South African historian and conference dinner speaker – in aid of Bokamoso, at The Institute of Directors, 116 Pall Mall, London in UK.

    This was a successful evening, where guests were also treated to a canapé dinner and a selection of South African wines.

    Read up on what one of our trustees, Peter Goldsworthy had to say in his opening speech…

    Good evening everyone, welcome and thank you very much for joining us tonight.  My name is Pete Goldsworthy and I’m one of the Trustees of the Bokamoso Education Trust, the charity which you are supporting with your presence here this evening.  

    In African tradition, when the village gathers to hear the storyteller recite the myths and legends of the people and of the land, the evening’s entertainment might also include a praise singer or imbongi as he is known in Xhosa. His job is to whip up interest in the main event. The imbongi should not be confused with the Springbok impi who welcomes visiting rugby teams with a war dance and a short stabbing spear.

    Now I didn’t bring my leopard skin tassles and even if I had I don’t pretend to be either an imbongi or an impi though I am a believer in the great African proverb that you should always cross the river in a crowd to minimise the chances of a crocodile eating you…what I will be doing is giving you a short overview of the Bokamoso Trust before handing over to our main storyteller for the evening.

    I’d like to begin by thanking our guest speaker, Michael Charton.  Without his generosity in presenting tonight in aid of our charity, this would not have been possible.  I’d also like to thank Orbis Investments whose kindness in hosting this evening has meant that 80% of all ticket sale revenue will go directly to children’s education, so a big thank you from all of us.  And a final thank-you to my co-Trustees, and especially Samantha Risely who has worked incredibly hard in arranging tonight, thank you Sam.

    It’s my pleasure now to briefly introduce the Trust, give you a sense of what it does and to hopefully leave you all with an upbeat message that, despite the education crisis afflicting much of Southern Africa there are many positive stories to tell.

    So…tonight is all about story-telling.

    For the South-Africans in the audience who grew up under starry skies, you will be no stranger to war stories around camp fires and folk tales about how the giraffe got its long neck, or how the leopard got her spots. After all, we South Africans of a certain age at least were the last to get TV, so books and stories were all we had!  

    And so it’s apt that our event tonight takes place in the land of great story tellers.  Beatrix Potter, Agatha Christie, Enid Blyton. Tolkien, Dickens and Dahl. And of characters such as Harry Potter, Winnie the Pooh and of course, the Gruffalo, who were all imagined here, in Britain.

    Books, legends, anecdotes and poems. Tales, stories, the transfer of knowledge, beliefs, customs and culture – this is not unique to any one nation or peoples, but all mankind. It is a distinctly human characteristic and one worth celebrating tonight, and every night.

    Just as Michael’s story is an historical perspective of South Africa’s past and her people, it is also about looking ahead – or “Bokamoso” – which means ‘future’ or ‘the future’ in Sotho and Swahili.

    It has been evident for some time now that the future of South Africa’s education system lies precariously in the balance. The 2019 State of Education Report is a sobering read. For every 100 learners that start school, only 50 will make it to GCSE level, 14 will qualify for university, and just 6 will achieve an undergraduate degree within 6 years. Approximately half of South African primary schools could be described as “cognitive wastelands”, meaning that in those schools not a single learner can read and understand what they are reading. In these schools, most teachers (80%) lack the content knowledge and instructive skill to teach the subjects they are currently teaching. For example, 75% of Grade 6 mathematics teachers cannot achieve 60% on a grade 6/7 level maths test.

    It is easy to feel overwhelmed by the enormity of the task ahead, to feel dwarfed by the challenges being faced in South Africa today.  Yet the reward of changing the course of just one life, of re-writing just one story is worth every effort and every ounce of energy.

    Included in your welcome pack is the story of Lerato Ncube, just one of the children currently supported by the Trust and I’d urge you to read it if you have a chance to do so later. The Trust is filled with ‘feel good stories’ like hers.

    The story of Bokamoso has very humble beginnings. A group of friends house sharing in Johannesburg, noticed their cleaner’s child playing in the garden each day when he should have been at school. His mother, a single parent, couldn’t afford the fees so the group of friends offered to pay for his studies and the cost was easily borne when split between all of them. And so Matthias Ndlovu became the first beneficiary of Bokamoso.

    Now, over 10 years later we have 58 children in the Trust’s care with fully paid tuition from Reception year right through to Grade 12 or GCSE equivalent; and we have another 4 children in the final stages of enrolment. We have corporate sponsors and individual donors committed to putting a child (or several children) through an entire school career. We have a strong balance sheet, where we invest any surplus funds for future years while the children are young, and their school fees are lower. We host multiple events throughout the year, in London and in cities across South Africa, and at current exchange rates; your ticket price in Sterling will go a long way to taking on more children in 2020 and beyond.

    Bokamoso Education Trust exists to help educate tomorrow’s great writers, poets and story-tellers. It exists so that we can dream of a future that is brighter, holding more promise for more people and to ensure that the best South African stories are yet to be written.

    And with that it gives me great pleasure to introduce Michael Charton. Michael – thank you once again for sacrificing the warm weather and sandy beaches of Cape Town to be with us in London tonight. This is the second time that I will hear this story and I am looking forward to it as much if not more than the first. Ladies and Gentlemen, please give a warm welcome to Michael Charton and Part 1, of My Father’s Coat…

    Become a Bokamoso mentor

    Bokamoso not only provides the kids with financial aid for school. We also provide them with a structured mentorship, which has been beneficial in helping to equip them for the future.

    With some of the older kids in High School, the workload and pressures of life can become intensifying, and therefore require support and a little guidance to get them through.

    Bokamoso not only requires financial support, but you too can contribute by playing an active role in the child’s development through mentorship.

    If you are interested in becoming a mentor, or would like more information about mentoring, please do contact us.

    Visit Bokamoso Education Trust website or contact Bokamoso CEO, Cathrine du Toit on cathrine@bokamosotrust.org.za to find out how you can get involved.

    run777 in aid of Bokamoso Education Trust

    We believe education is essential in uplifting the youth of South Africa, providing them the best chance of a sustainable future. As we look to support a growing number of children, we are always pleased to come across like-minded individuals who are passionate about our vision to fund the dreams of children in South Africa.

    We recently caught up with Oliver Bath from UK (originally from South Africa) who, together with some of his mates formed an initiative called run777 – a challenge of running seven different marathons, in seven countries, for seven consecutive days, whilst raising funds to support a great cause.

    Each participant will have prepared for over six months and invested over 1,500 km (150 hours) as they prepare to take on the physical, logistical and mental challenge.

    How did you learn about Bokamoso Education Trust?

    I was fortunate enough to be invited to a fundraising golf day hosted by Bokamoso Trust UK a couple of years ago. It’s here that I learnt of the amazing work the guys are doing and decided then that run777 would elect Bokamoso as it’s preferred charity. 

    How was run777 born?

    Me and a few local running mates (unofficially named the Sounds Good Run Club) had all run at least one marathon, experienced the euphoria of crossing the finishing line for the first time, yet hungered and hankered for more. Initially dismissed as ridiculous – as most grand ambitions are – it gradually gained acceptance. The path to goosebumps, elation and joyful tears became clear. We had to go further…7 marathons in 7 countries in 7 days. We then formulated a plan, secured a coach, and started our seven months of training and run777 was born.

    What is the idea behind run777?

    The idea behind run777 is that it isn’t a race to the finish line. It is an epic adventure of achievement, camaraderie, breathtaking scenery and pushing yourself and teammates to achieve something we never thought possible, whilst raising funds for charity that will improve children’s lives.

    What does it take to prepare for run777?

    Training through a European winter or African summer is no small feat. Starting in September 2018 each runner kicked off their training with 40km per week, building at 10% a week to meet the 100km weekly target, which according to our coach will have us ready to take on the challenge. 

    Over the course of the seven months each runner will clock over 1,500 km of running – to put it in perspective, that’s the distance from Jozi to Cape Town. Although the bulk of the training milage completed by each runner was done solo (due to full-time jobs and family responsibilities), the runners still managed to remotely support and motivate each other using social media platforms –  Strava, Facebook, WhatsApp. Coupled with the group camaraderie was the motivation of running for Bokamoso Education Trust. 

    Why it is particularly important to you and your teammates that you support Bokamoso Education Trust in this way?

    Two words: ‘education and children’. There really isn’t anything more important that doing what we can to build a better future for our (all of our) children. 

    How can people help you in your cause to raise funds for Bokamoso Education Trust?

    Last year, with the support of friends, family and colleagues we managed to raise an astonishing €13,497 (R217 550,07). This year, with your everyone’s support, we hope to add to this and help Bokamosa continue its amazing work. 

    If you would like to support this great initiative, you can find our GivenGain event donation page here.

    run777 is set to take off from 12 May – 18 May 2019, in the following countries:

    • 12/05/2019 – Marathon 1 Switzerland (42.2km) – Geneva official city marathon
    • 13/05/2019 – Marathon 2 France (42.2km) – Lake Anncey loop
    • 14/05/2019 – Marathon 3 Italy (42.2km) – Lake Como – Bellagio to Como port
    • 15/05/2019 – Marathon 4 Liechtenstein (42.2km) – Liechtenstein country crossing
    • 16/05/2019 – Marathon 5 Austria (42.2km) – West Austrian Hard loop
    • 17/05/2019 – Marathon 6 Germany (42.2km) – Konstanz medieval lake run
    • 18/05/2019 – Marathon 7 UK (42.2km) – Surrey home stretch

    We wish run777 crew all the best for the marathon.

    Celebrating Bokamoso moms

    On 12 May 2019, South Africa celebrated special women in their lives who support and nurture them – moms, sisters, aunts, grandmothers and even mentors. 

    While every son or daughter will have their own reasons why they consider their mom to be a superhero. Here’s what some of the Bokamoso Education Trust children had to say about their mothers:

    Thami Sibanda, to his mom, Nosisa: 

    I love my mother because she is my role model. She works hard and takes care of me and my brothers. She wakes up early every day and makes sure I eat before going to school. She always packs a healthy lunch for me. She is always full of love and laughter. She can be very funny sometimes.

    Maria, to her mom Simi: 

    My mother means everything to me, yes she always shouts at me when I am naughty and she always tells me how important education is, that if I work very hard I will pass. Thank you mom for your love and your care. Thank you for everything you have done for me mother. I love you very much.

    Bongani to his mom:

    My mom is the root to my achievements and the reason why I am here. Thanks to her to cooking and warm hands I’m still here. Thank you mom.

    Caitlin, to her mom Michele: 

    My mom is the best in my world. When I am sad, she always knows hoe to cheer me up. My mom means whole world to me. 

    Nkosinathi, about her mom, Connstance: 

    My mom is the kindest most sweetest woman I know. She is always there for me and my sister Emily during tough times. She comforts us when we are afraid. She is our light in darkness. She always finds a way to put food on the table and have a roof over our heads. She always has love to spare even if we disrespect her, she always forgives us at the end of the day. She has a strong bold heart and never gives up on what she is doing until she finishes it. We won’t be here if it weren’t for her she’s the best mom. This is why me and my sister love her.

    Lindokuhle, to mom:

    I would like to thank you for everything you have done for me. You are special to me. You give me strength everyday. You are always there for me when I cry and every time I fall. You are the best mom ever.

    Kelvin to his mom: 

    My mom is my everything to me. She cares for me and makes sure that I do all my homework and pass at school. I love her so much.

    Gabi, to her mom, Zine:

    My mom, a title above queen is like my buttons that holds everything together, To the world she might be just one person but to me she is the world. What’s special about her is that she’s bold, loving, strong and a women like no other. She gave me life , she held me, she shouts at me when I’m naughty, but most of all she loves me unconditionally. She is so special to me because even though she is unemployed, she makes sure I don’t go to bed with a empty stomach and have warm clothes in winter .There are just not enough words in the dictionary, google or Wikipedia to explain how special she is to me.

    Mathias to his mom, Francinah.

    My mom means the world to me because she shows me how important life is and how good education can impact my life in the future. I love you mommy.

    Ntchindi brings his A-game!

    The 14 year old Ntchindi Ndhlovu joined Bokamoso family in 2016. He is currently in grade 8, at Parktown Boys High School.

    Our amazing Ntchindi has made the U14 Southern Gauteng Hockey Team.

    The game is more physical at the senior level, but Ntchindi is undaunted and relishes the challenge.

    He has put in the hard yards building up his fitness levels. We couldn’t be more proud of his achievement.

    Snamile is unstoppable

    16 year old Snamile Mthembu, joined the Bokamoso family in 2010. Since then Snamile has been unstoppable. She is hardworking – in both academics and on the sports field

    .

    Help us celebrate our Snamile (in the middle) who recently attended Delfos Cricket Club Awards, where she received trophies for the most improved player of the season and for representing Delfos Cricket Club.

    Snamile is inspired by these young women:

    Jenna Searle, who plays for U19 Gauteng cricket, club cricket for Delfos and Women’s Gauteng Cricket.

    Robyn Searle, who plays for Women’s Gauteng Cricket, club practice for Delfos with Snamile and South African Protea Women’s team.

    “These people are important to me because they both inspire me so much in cricket,” says Snamile. “They are the main people who got me where I am in cricket – they have helped me a lot.”

    We watch her, very expectant of a bright future ahead of her.

    Khaya our super star

    Khaya Tshuma joined Bokamoso in 2010, when he was only 7 years old. Khaya is now a 15-year old young man

    Khaya has made the 1st team hockey side and qualified into the school choir. He’s doing so well at Hyde Park High and we believe a huge contributing factor has been the incredible role of his mentor.

    They visit art galleries together (Khaya loves art), his mentor doesn’t miss a hockey game! For a young man at his age without a dad, the impact of this relationship is invaluable. Having a mentor to encourage, build and spend time with Khaya is something that is proof in all that he is achieving, and all that he is as a person.

    Thank you to all our donors and Khaya’s mentor for making this possible, we couldn’t do it without you.

    The Bokamoso family is growing

    With the help of some significant donor growth we are excited to take on five more children to help give them the necessary start to their lives. The trust now proudly funds 69 children. We are committed to offering all the support they need to become the best that they can be.

    Meet the new addition to the Bokamoso family:

    A huge and heartfelt thank you to our donors for the continued backing and financial support. This is what keeps us going and growing.

    Celebrating Bokamoso superdads

    Father’s Day gives us the opportunity to show and express our love and gratitude to these special people who play a big role in our lives.

    For the important role fathers and father figures play in the lives of their children, families and society, we asked some of the Bokamoso children why they consider their dads to be superheroes.

    While every son or daughter will have their own reasons, here are some of the heart warming messages and reasonings from Bokamoso children…

    Ntshindi to his dad:

    Happy Father’s Day. I’m grateful to have a father like you. You are always there for me. You’re the best father in the world.

    Mathias to his dad:

    Dear dad, you have been there for me ever since I was a kid. You have taught me how life takes a turn. You’ve have fought all my battles and taught me to never hit others kids. You are my super dad.

    Cousins, Tokollo and leago their his grandad:

    Youth month: connecting youth with positive role models

    A lot of successful people attribute at least part of their success to having mentors and positive role models who have helped guide their direction into the future.

    Mentoring a child, especially through their teenage years can help empower them and build their self confidence, allowing them to become the best that they can be. Through consistent guidance, support and encouragement, mentors help young people set goals and achieve them.

    As we strive toward the next generation of leaders, we hear firsthand from some of the Bokamoso mentors, who are inspiring positive change in our country through mentoring, why being mentors to Bokamoso children is important to them…

    Sarah Hesse, mentor to Maria Ndlovu

    Mentoring Maria (10) has been such a rich and rewarding experience. Over time we have managed to build up a great relationship and we are starting to have good conversations around current affairs, South Africa, family values and behaviours that are acceptable. The Youth of this country have so much to look forward to. Their minds are enquiring and their potential is amazing.

    In order for South Africa to move forward we need to forget the past and focus on the future. It’s the youth that holds this key. As educated working South Africans it’s so important for us to guide these clever little brains down the right path. Help them navigate the tough environment of a 2019 school day and show them how to focus on the future so it’s bright for everyone.

    Michele Katz, mentor to Prizelle Mafuba

    I love being a mentor to Prizelle. I have known her for almost a year now and what has become most special to me is the bond of trust that has grown between us. It means so much to me that she values our time together and she makes me feel that I am making a difference.

    One of my passions is to help guide school leavers into the next stage of their lives, whether that be study or work options, and I have the privilege of navigating this journey with Prizelle who is currently completing her term 2, Grade 11 exams. As we face (together) what her career after high school will hold for her, we are both learning about what options are out there, how to embrace the decisions that need to be made and how to action the next steps.

    I strongly believe there is a massive gap when it comes to educating school leavers. They very often don’t know about the array of choices open to them and how to match up their strengths / passions with various tertiary study options and this is vital for the ongoing career eco-system. I hope in my small way, just to make just the tiniest bit of impact by helping my extraordinary mentee.”

    John Roux, mentor to Mathias Ndlovu, Thokozani Mncube and Nkosinathi Mnguni

    It is a privilege being able to sow into the young lives of my mentees.I am so grateful to have bonded and been accepted so readily by them. And to gain their trust and openness thus far. It is wonderful to be able to challenge them to try and reach higher.

    I have probably benefited more than the boys through the experience – I always go away after meetings with them with hope for the future.

    I’ve been really encouraged by their positive attitude towards their circumstances and families and I have loved getting a glimpse of life through the eyes of young people from a different cultural background.

    Being a mentor is a crucial added dimension in the chain of stakeholders in young lives. It is an added place to be able to tell stories and share thoughts, challenges and joys. It also exposes youth to different ways of thinking. It is a place where questions can be asked that would not be easy to find answers to at home or school.

    Investing in the youth is critically important to creating hope and a future in young lives, which can be achieved through an investment of time and effort. It also demonstrates extraordinary care and interest, which should result in extraordinary outcomes.

    Thank you to our mentors. The impact your time and investment is having on these children’s lives is invaluable.

    Mentoring involves meeting your mentee every week or alternate week for an hour  – which make so much difference in our children . If you too would like more information about mentoring please contact us.

    Tractor outdoor sponsors Bokamoso outing

    On Monday, 8 July 2019, the Bokamoso children enjoyed a day of adventure at Acrobranch, in Melrose. The outing was generously sponsored by one of our corporate donors, Tractor Outdoor.

    Tractor Outdoor is an outdoor advertising company offering expertly situated advertising space in the major cities of South Africa. In 2018 they sponsored a billboard placement of Bokamoso Education Trust in the busy traffic of William Nicol. They are also a donor to some of our children, funding their education.

    .The children had a great morning out on Monday with their parents and Bokamoso mentors. The shrieks and laughter from them as they swung and climbed the trees was such a heart-warming experience. Tractor Outdoor provided delicious snacks and drinks as well as bottomless pizzas for all who were there.

    The kids absolutely loved the experience! This was a great gesture just before they head back to school, after their holidays.

    Thank you once again to Tractor Outdoor and their team for treating them all to such a memorable experience and for the continued support they give to our trust.

    Check out the photos below to see what we got up to:

    The children wrote letters of appreciation to Tractor Outdoor, thanking them for the beautiful treat

    Celebrate with us at the Bokamoso education trust annual fundraiser

    On Friday, 1 November 2019 – The night before the Rugby World Cup final – The Bokamoso Education Trust will once again be celebrating the amazing Bokamoso children and acknowledging the friends and supporters who have helped the trust to be the success it is today.

    This special evening will also feature the remarkable untold story of legendary 1937 Springboks in New-Zealand, The First World Champions presented by Michael Charton.

    The First World Champions explores the origins of the unique rivalry between the All Blacks and Springboks: two countries united in their passion for rugby, but divided by their politics. A forgotten Springbok tour of New Zealand in 1937 provides the platform and characters through which Michael brings this story to life. His message celebrates the value system associated with rugby’s amateur era and it serves as a nostalgic reminder of what is important in life and legacy.

    See the preview of what you can look forward to from the talk below: 

    Join us in the stunning setting of Dunkeld Bowls Club for this truly special evening of fine food, drinks and entertainment

    Your contribution towards this evening will help us to continue impacting the lives of children and their families by providing them with the necessary financial support for an excellent education.

    We look forward to seeing you there!

     

    Our Story

    Our Story

    Where the Bokamoso Education Trust UK began

    It all started in the year 2008… in a small suburb in a Northern part of Johannesburg. Seven regular guys in their early twenties, starting out their careers with little knowledge that a “good idea” would positively influence and, quite literally, change the lives of so many individuals and their families.

    These seven regular guys, some doing their articles, others their first year of work experience, had employed a lady by the name of Francina as their domestic worker. Francina was caring for her son, Mathias, who, every day would stay at the ‘digs’ with not much to do… but Francina faced what thousands, if not millions, of South Africans, face daily. How does a person like herself offer her son the best education possible in order for him to make a success of himself in this land of opportunity? 

    These seven, ambitious and working young men recognised the need and desire Francina had in her heart to offer her son something more. After months of getting to know Mathias, being greeted by him at the gate every evening after they returned home from work, a bond had begun forming. In a small way, they had become like ‘father figures’ to Mathias. A certain sense of responsibility and care led these young men to put their heads together. They had a plan.

    R72 per month, multiplied by the seven digs-mates would be able to fund Mathias to go to school. After some intense investigations, a private school, not far from the digs, was an amazing option. Fees that were much more affordable than an average private school, but offering a world-class education. This was the answer! Little Mathias was going to be given an opportunity to become the best little South African citizen he could be!

    And now… thirteen years later, our little Mathias is a confident and happy Grade 11 pupil at Parktown Boys High School thriving on the opportunity that was given to him. Mathias was the spark of inspiration of what is now the Bokamoso Education Trust offering financial support for over seventy children (and growing!). We rely solely on the kindness of our individual donors as well as many corporate organisations.

     

    Our philosophy: “on your own, it may be difficult to make a difference, but collectively, every little bit helps, and this can be a catalyst for great change”.

    Bokamoso welcomes Kirsty Hatfield onboard!

    Kirsty is an energetic and vibrant people’s person.  She has a Marketing Communication degree but has not limited herself to this.  She loves to take projects, initiatives, businesses, or just fun family activities from the idea stage to full execution. She makes things happen and invariably succeeds, especially when the requirement involves some combination of wellness, education, children, fundraising, project management, marketing, and organising.

    A mother of two boys, but if she had her way would have an entire soccer team! She loves children, and many of her business initiatives and personal activities have focused on either working with them or working with mothers.

    Kirsty is currently also studying for her PGCE. Her interest in education aligns strongly with the mission and vision of Bokamoso and she is looking forward to making a material difference in the lives of the students.

She is supported by an amazing mentor, Michele, who has journeyed closely with her and supports her unconditionally.

    Be Inspired, meet Ruby a little girl with a big heart to pay it forward, be inspired!

    We were short of school fees for the year for Mini and are now able to pay for her to go to school next year, so a huge thank you to Ruby for making this possible by asking her friends to donate money to Bokamoso instead of bringing gifts for her. She also baked and sold chocolate brownies raise money and Miningle was the recipient of her enormous generosity.

    A massive THANK YOU from all of us at Bokamoso and especially Mini’s Mom for the incredible gift of education Rubi’s has given to Mini.

    Milan Bheeka joins Bokamoso

    I am currently 26 years old and work as an Actuary at Discovery Life in the Strategic Projects team. I can certainly say that this role reflects the attainment of a dream and pursuit of a passion I have held for many years growing up – being able to work with numbers, communicate ideas and solve challenging problems while having a real impact on people’s lives.
    We are mainly responsible for ensuring the financial soundness of the business by analysing risk and developing solutions that are innovative to help manage that risk in the interests of clients and all other stakeholders.

    Some of my other interests during time away from work include following all varieties of sport, particularly the South African favourites like cricket, rugby and golf, and enjoy playing these on a social level with family and friends.
    My greatest calling I feel is in charitable work and trying to make a real impact on those that have far less of a privileged life than I have been truly blessed to enjoy. I love the mentoring aspect of working with Bokamoso and by so doing develop a really strong bond with a child; nurturing and uplifting children is something that brings me real joy. I also enjoy contributing to feeding schemes and any other projects to alleviate suffering in which one can not only assist from afar financially but more so on a hands-on basis.

    I would say that my ultimate goal in life is to develop spiritually as a person and be as great an ambassador for all the goodness that exists in humanity as possible. The more lives we can touch positively, the happier we can ultimately be ourselves by witnessing a more equal, loving and joyous world. Bokamoso gives us a previous opportunity to harness the power of education in paving the way to a brighter future and for this, I cherish my association with them so very much.

    Looking back and thank you

    It’s been quite a year, between lockdown and restrictions, being cooped up and then set free, but we have all made it through stronger and more determined than ever. The pedals have kept moving and Bokamoso beneficiaries have continued to benefit from your efforts.

    As we approach the end of our most challenging year yet as a charity, we would like to thank you each personally, on behalf of the entire team at Bokamoso Education Trust, for your continuous support during 2020! The impact of our work in enabling and promoting a world-class education for those who otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford it, would not be possible without your participation in our efforts. Your generous donations throughout this year have not only enabled us to support the schooling of more children, but also assisted us in regaining capital lost due to the expenses we incurred during the Covid-19 pandemic.

    Over the year, not only have we continued to support nearly 70 children, but we have been able to help feed 23 of our families who lost their primary source of income. The pandemic continues to threaten the livelihood of our families and it is our motivation to make sure our children are first fed before attending school. We are convinced that our work is more valuable than ever, as is the importance of having trusted and committed donors such as yourselves to support the Trust.

    Our sole vision is to turn children’s dreams into reality, not only by providing the necessary financial support and mentorship for an excellent education but also by supporting families to be the best they can be. We believe that an excellent and holistic education is a vital element in providing each child with the necessary grounding to make consistently good decisions for themselves and society’s well-being.

    Ultimately these children will grow into responsible citizens who can positively contribute to the development of South Africa. It is easy to forget that while education may be a constitutional right in South Africa, for many it is not a reality. And while it may be difficult to make a difference on our own, every little bit helps. Our communities of donors are catalysts for great change.

    We have appreciated all the love and support shown throughout this crazy year and can’t thank you enough for all your support as we navigated unchartered territory for all of us.

    We are looking forward to a strong and exciting new year as we now fund an additional seven new children from January. Without your consistent donations, this would not be possible. You have continued to support us and make this possible for which we are so grateful especially in an unprecedented year like this. 2020 has been a challenging year for us all, but history has taught us that these moments are only temporary and that we persevere together. It is our hope that 2020 has been a positive year for you and your family and that going into 2021 there will be newfound energy and optimism. We wish you and your family a joyous holiday season and a most prosperous and healthy new year.

    We wish you a beautiful festive season and a prosperous New Year filled with love, health and dreams that take flight.

    What you can do


    What you can do

    We are always on the lookout to grow our network of like-minded individuals
    who are passionate about our vision to fund the dreams of children in South Africa.

    There are a number of ways to get involved:

    Become a donor

    In order to support a child, we look to raise R5200 a month. This is made up of 21 individual
    donors as well as a parent at R260 p/m, increasing annually with inflation.

    These donations help fund the 15 years of their education from
    Gr000 – Gr12 and a Tertiary Education in line with a child’s ability and interests.

    As we look to support a growing number of children,
    you can contribute as a donor in a number of ways:

     

    1. Regular monthly contributions
    (corporate or individual)

    For as little as R260 a month, you can sign up as a regular donor. If you are based in South Africa, the easiest way to sign up is by completing the following form.

     

    2. Adhoc contributions

    Adhoc contributions can be paid directly into our bank account:

    Mentor feedback

    “Gaby has indicated that she would like help with maths – fractions in particular and Afrikaans. She reads beautifully and when I asked to have a look at her school books, her marks are above average and her handwriting absolutely beautiful. In my opinion she is a very bright little girl with a lot of potential. As we are in the early stages of our relationship we spend quite a bit of time getting to know one another by telling each other what happened during the day and the past week. Gaby has also read to me in English and Afrikaans. We also did a whole exercise from her Afrikaans book which included writing out sentences. She did very well at this. We have also played ‘I spied with my little eyes’ and played with her friends outside, whilst waiting for her mom to arrive. [My moment of the month as mentor] is Gaby’s eagerness and enthusiasm to learn.”

    Mentor Feedback

    “We are really getting on well! The highlight was when I took her to Spur and we enjoyed a meal together and then she played with other kids on the trampoline, she really enjoyed herself and didn’t want to leave ;-). I have visited her when her friend and/or her brother have also been at the school and she has been happy to share my attention and her goodies that we use to colour-in or play together with. She really is a lovely child!

    Mentor Feedback

    “I think we’re developing a good relationship over time. She trusts now that I’ll be there. I’ve kept the sessions quite casual, mostly just seeing what comes up for us to do. We’ve been to the library, art gallery and walked a bit, played scrabble or just talked, I guided her with a bit of writing. We were both pleased to see each other when she came back from her last holiday.”
    Nina mentor to Snamile

    Mentor Feedback

    Brandon has reminded me of my youth and the many obstacles young boys face today, long after I had grown up and forgotten those problems only to replace them with grown up issues. Being a part of the program has reminded me that there are young kids out there who are the future leaders, engineers, doctors, fire fighters & police men & women, and being a mentor means YOU get a chance to positively guide & influence the minds of the next generation as oppose to letting the best opportunity we have at turning our country & quality of life around slip away.

    Lushen mentor to Brandon

    Mentor Feedback

    “I feel really privileged to be able to share in the life of my little Mentee. She makes my heart warm and my soul sing and reminds me of how it’s our primary duty as adults to take care of and protect our youth. We must prepare them for what life may send their way and give them the tools to cope and make decisions. Thank you for this wonderful opportunity!”

     

    Adilia Teixeira Joubert mentor to Melody

    Mentor Feedback

    “Coming in to this program, I had no idea of what to expect and I must admit that at the beginning, the thought of having a young person look at you for guidance was very daunting especially when I take a moment to consider the many mistakes I myself had made along my life journey. Brandon definitely changed that uncertainty in me into something completely different simply by showing me how innocent and vulnerable many of these kids are. He has grown from a shy almost withdrawn young boy into a more open, confident young man who definitely smiles much more than he used to. The cure to cancer is out there, but what if its locked in the mind of a young child in need of care, guidance and education. That is the way we need to approach this program, to ensure we keep searching for the very best in each of these kids so that we can help them achieve the best they can be.”

    FAQs

    FAQ

    Some frequently asked questions
    that we would like to address:

    HOW ARE THE CHILDREN CHOSEN?

    As the driving force behind this initiative is to provide education we will always ensure that the child’s primary need is education. Thus the criteria that drive the selection process are as follows:

     

    1. The child has strong and sustainable family support to encourage and assist him or her through their schooling.
    2. Basic essentials such as food and shelter are guaranteed for the child in the foreseeable future.
    3. The parent/s are 100% committed to the child’s education and development.
    4. The parents agree to be accountable for the child’s attendance at school.

    WHAT FEEDBACK CAN I EXPECT FROM BOKAMOSO?

    Bokamoso provides regular updates through the website and publishes a newsletter three times a year. Specific feedback on how your child is doing is provided on a biannually basis (June and December). This will include a school report, comment from the teachers and any other relevant information. Specific queries can be directed to the Trust at anytime.

    I WOULD LIKE TO DONATE MORE, HOW CAN I DO THIS?

    If you would like to make an additional donation please do it through our Givengain platform or direct deposit into our bank account.  If you’d like to join us as a corporate donor please contact us on info@bokamosotrust.org.za. A trustee will then get in contact with you.

    DO I HAVE TO BE A PERMANENT DONOR OR CAN I DONATE ON AN AD HOC BASIS?

    Ideally we’d like donors to commit to a certain period but if you want to donate on an ad hoc basis we welcome your generosity and would be happy to facilitate this.

    CAN I SUGGEST A BENEFICIARY FOR THE TRUST’S ATTENTION?

    Yes, you can. If you have someone in mind please contact us at info@bokamosotrust.org.za and we will send you a beneficiary application form. Once the form has submitted a Trustee will get in contact with you. We cannot, however, guarantee that children put forward will become a beneficiary.

    DO THE TRUSTEES GET REMUNERATED IN ANY FORM FOR THEIR DUTIES AS A TRUSTEE?

    The trustees do not receive any remuneration whatsoever for their duities as a trustee.

    HOW CAN I BE SURE THIS IS NOT A SCHEME TO PAY FOR CHILDREN OF DOMESTIC HELPERS OF TRUSTEES AND FRIENDS OF TRUSTEES?

    Other than a strong personal ethical code, all the trustees are bound by their duties and responsibilities as trustees as well as by their respective professional codes of conduct. As a registered PBO Bokamoso has met the legal requirements enforced by SARS, which are designed to eliminate any avoidance schemes – i.e putting one’s own children into a PBO education trust to avoid having to pay tax. Furthermore, Deloitte have agreed to be our auditors. The Deloitte Foundation has been involved in the process right from the start and has given the Trust financial support. They fully support this Trust based on the fact that there is no such conflict of interest.

    Currently our school partners, Vuleka and The Grove, identifies children in need. Those that fit the above mentioned criteria are considered for acceptance as beneficiaries.

    Appeal for old laptops

    The incredible organisation, Girl Code, is on a mission to empower 10 million women and girls with tech skills by 2033! Here at Bokamoso, we also strongly believe that technology is the future and want to expose all our children to as much tech and tech-field career options as possible. We have therefore partnered with Girl Code who have offered as many Bokamoso children (girls and boys) who are keen to get involved in their coding academy. What an incredible opportunity for our children!

    The catch?

    They need access to a laptop and data so they can do the online sessions on Saturdays.

    If you have an old working laptop (with charger), please consider donating it to one of our children. Please contact alison@bokamosotrust.org.za to organise delivery or drop-off.
