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