In response to all of the queries we have been receiving, we would like to inform our friends and family that Teboho Trust is no longer in association with Friends of Teboho. We wish them well as they endeavor to continue their stated general efforts: "to draw local and national attention and support from those who care about programs and activities worldwide, particularly those aimed at vulnerable, at-risk and orphaned children and adolescents in Africa.
Through the Teboho Trust, the simple success story of a transformation from total despair to absolute hope and educational success is slowly becoming a reality for more of our youth. We currently have close to 400 adolescents that are orphaned and / or vulnerable participating in our programmes.
DEVELOPING TOMORROW'S LEADERS
Our children say :
"Teboho Trust is like a home to me because we improve our grades and at the same time we play games and hold competitions where learning is fun. We have excellent academic tutors and life skills facilitators. Teboho Trust is a place where I get all the things I need to do well in school and to make good decisions about my life." - Themba Buyeye, Grade 9
"Teboho Trust is a community organization based in Soweto that gives opportunities to young people and showcases our talents. It's a play ground for young people to form empowering ideas and a stage to turn those ideas into reality. Teboho Trust makes sure that we children get access to information, were we learn and improve our self identity. Teboho Trust is a learning field and has made education to take number one priority in my life." - Lungile Edna Buhale, Grade 9

Executive Director Gives TEDx Talk
Who we are:
Teboho Trust informally started in February 2001 and registered a South African Public Trust in April 2004. The name chosen for the organisation is a SeSotho Name given to a child at birth. It means, “Thank you God for giving us this person…this gift”. This name was given to Mr. Bright our founder and all that are part of the Teboho Trust family are saying thank you God for this amazing family.
Who We Serve:
We focus primarily on orphan, vulnerable and / or at-risk children, adolescents, youths, their caregivers and community.
What We Do:
We have programmes and activities to educate children and teens (Ages 4-18) and facilitate the development of small enterprises for their caregivers, out-of-school youth and adults in the community. We provide sports and recreational activities as well as educational and fun trips. We also provide personal empowerment and social development workshops as well as wellness programmes.
How We Serve:
We operate a successful Saturday Academy, after school tutorials and holiday academic camps for our children / teens. We run empowerment workshops to build the self-esteem of our children and adults as well as skill them to obtain needed tools and strategies to cope and succeed in their environments. We also conduct wellness workshops and provide nutritious meals when operating our progarmmes and activities. We also run small business development training and incubation for our caregivers, youths and adults in the community. We provide all of this in a loving and enabling environment.
Why A Teboho Trust:
We empower the children and our community in order for them to realise their full potential and contribute to the greater society. At the same time we are helping our village to raise our children well. Our overall aim is to provide an empowering environment that will incubate future leaders while at the same time keeping families together.
