“The Trust gave me the opportunity to study at one of the best schools in the country – TuksSport High School. It made my time at the school easy and enjoyable as we had access to the best sports facilities, best coaches, psychologists, massage therapists, doctors, amazing teachers and many more. All of this afforded me the opportunity to perform at my highest level in my sport while being able to balance my schoolwork. 

There is no room for failure when you are acquainted with the Trust because they give you all the best tools possible, not only to succeed in sport but also in education.

As a result of my good performances both academically and in sport, I got another opportunity to study at the University of Pretoria where I obtained a Bachelor of Information Science degree. In short, the Trust gave me one opportunity that opened many doors for my future.”
