Growing the future of South Africa


Our programme is uniquely positioned to develop future leaders, entrepreneurs, academics, owners and managers. It is an encompassing programme aimed at the executive development of highly qualified black males and females. We annually identify top black male and female Grade 12 learners across South Africa and invest in them at secondary and tertiary level through technology tools, training, tutorship, mentorship, support, work opportunities, funding support and bursaries, to help them ultimately unlock employment opportunities.


Our scholarship offering is encompassing with recipients qualifying for programme support, technology and communication tools, learning content, tutorship, mentorship, bursaries, support funding, internship and employment opportunities, as well as the opportunity to form part of our select group of alumni.



Each scholarship recipient becomes a member of a select group of alumni. Our programme establishes a long-term relationship with each recipient and assists them to not only enrol at a tertiary education institution, but also support them with tutorship, support funding, internship opportunities and bursary options to achieve excellence at a tertiary level.



The programme is supported by partners which support, fund, sponsor, mentor and provide opportunities for our recipients. Partners get involved as general sponsors or donors or more personally through mentorship, internships and targeted bursaries. Our programme also closely partners with national and provincial departments of basic education to identify our bursary recipients.
