Charity: The Tomorrow Trust

Shortly:

I hold a BA (Hons) degree in ergonomics as well as a postgraduate diploma in occupational health and medicine and has gained extensive work experience in the fields of research, management consulting and project management. I have always been passionate about women’s and children’s causes, which explains my decision to volunteer at The Tomorrow Trust. The Tomorrow Trust strives to eliminate the cyclical dependence on hand-outs by addressing the academic, psychosocial, nutritional and individual development of orphaned and vulnerable children.

My Projects:

  • Computer literacy programme
    - I was able to source and attain 40 new laptops for each of The Tomorrow Trust schools
    - These laptops have development programmes already installed on them for the children to use in order to help them develop their English and Maths skills
  • Mandela Day
    - The Trust held a read-athon that enabled all of the children to take a book home
  • Social media and fundraising

My Background:

  • Studied at UCT and Rhodes University

  • Most of her experience is in the fields of research, management, consulting and project management
  • Passionate about issues concerning women and children, she chose to volunteer at The Tomorrow Trust

More about The Tomorrow Trust:

  • The Tomorrow Trust is the pioneer of exit strategy and sustainability for orphaned and vulnerable children through education in South Africa
  • Through a network of schools and grassroots-level organisations, The Tomorrow Trust identifies the children and youth most in need of educational intervention
  • These youth are then brought into the Tomorrow Trust’s programs where they receive personal attention for their individual learning and psychosocial needs, thereby filling the gaps in their education
  • By the time a learner leaves The Tomorrow Trust, he or she is a mature, career-ready individual
  • The Tomorrow Trust strives for sustainability - each program works in conjunction with and filters into the others
  • This process is vital as it ensures that the individual learners become self-reliant individuals who will eventually contribute to the South African economy
