Supporting children into education since 2010

The Zoe Trust is fundraising!

We are always looking to expand our family of sponsors and there is no better time than now!

If you are already one of our wonderful sponsors, please consider inviting friends and family to join us.

We currently have two inspiring young women who need your support to make their last three years of school as successful as they deserve.

Nontobeko and Sanele are both incredible young women, who are in their final year at Khethani Christian School. The next step on their educational journey is crucial for them to gain the exam results they need to get into university or college. With this in mind, we want to send them to a good school in Richards Bay rather than the government schools in Ingwavuma which are struggling to support the needs of their students.

However, we need to raise £270 (more) a month for each girl for the next three years.

We are therefore looking for new sponsors to join our Zoe Trust family – you can give from £1 a month, or donate quarterly, or yearly, or give a once-off donation! Every little really does help, and for the price of a sandwich or a meal each month you could change the life of a child in South Africa.

Meet our wonderful girls:

Nontobeko is 18 years old, and is an incredible role model to other children, both at home and at school. She lives IMG_1486in Ekukhayeni children’s home with twenty other children. When Nontobeko first arrived, just seven years old, she had not been well looked after at all, and was frightened and shy.

Thanks to the incredible work of her carers and teachers at Khethani she is now a confident, kind, and inspirational young woman. She is completely flourishing in the care of a loving and stable home, and now has great faith in her own ability to achieve her dreams. She wants to go to university and become a social worker or teacher, because she loves working with people and wants to be able to support others in the way that she has been supported as she has grown. Nontobeko says that she sees herself as a symbol of light, that others can look to when they feel close to giving up in life.

Please see this video for a short hello from Nontobeko. 

If you want to learn more about her, please also see this remarkable video where she talks about some of the adversities she has overcome.

Sanele wants to be a scientist or a doctor. She lives with her mum and four siblings in Ingwavuma. Sanele 15107215_1182801731773232_2063023794733515703_nis mature and kind with a strong sense of what she needs to do in order to achieve her dreams of enabling her future children to have access to the same quality education that she has received.

Here is a short video of Sanele, describing herself and her passions. Please contact or if you have any questions at all, or would like to join our Zoe Trust family.

This really is a beautiful opportunity to help change a child’s life.
