Help A Child Successfully Complete High School!

Our current fundraising priority is raising support for the children from poverty-stricken homes in rural South Africa, so that they may live in the Hostel Facilities operated by the Themba Trust, a 35-year old non-profit organisation, which has quietly worked in a forgotten corner of Mpumalanga Province, on the border to KwaZulu-Natal, to help teenagers, mainly children of farmworkers in the area, to successfully complete their high school education.

In 2019, the Themba Trust requires Scholarships for 50 teenagers, boys and girls, many of whom are orphaned, whose families cannot afford their hostel fees, while they are living to far away from a school that is able to offer them the support they need to successfully matriculate.

The fundraising target for the Scholarship Fund of the Themba Trust for 2019 is R1,4 million (USD 100,000.-; EU90,000.-).

Once this target has been reached, the Young Africa FOUNDATION will focus on raising funds for another youth development project that helps kids from poor homes to break through the mud-ceiling of poverty.
