Who We Serve

We focus primarily on orphan, vulnerable and / or at-risk children, adolescents, youths, their caregivers and community.

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.

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 programmes 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.
