The Izzi Trust’s mission
is to provide financially disadvantaged children with the best education our country can offer
We are a children’s charity whose philosophy centres on empowerment through education. Our three main areas of activity are:
- providing bursaries that enable financially disadvantaged children to attend some of our country’s finest schools
- running outreach programmes at underprivileged schools and creches
- encouraging and facilitating environmental, cultural and academic events that bring together children from our country’s many different economic and social groups
We carry out this work through our three outreach arms:

351,000 meals in 2014
This Christmas will be a bit brighter for the students that depend on the daily meal from their school. The partnership between Makro and the Izzi Trust enabled us to provide 351,000 meals this year to 4500 families in winter and this summer at our partner outreach schools in Olievenhoutbos, Olifantsfontein and Boschkop Pretoria.
This project could not have been such a great success without the hard work of the Springs Care staff and volunteers packing these nutritious meals. Thank you to corporate volunteers for donating their time to hand out to the children.

Southdowns growing creatively
Southdowns College Prep SHOT and ECO club started mobile vegetable garden kits as part of an outreach programme run by the Feed a Child initiative.
Feed a Child believes in sustainability and encouraging its projects to grow their own vegetables. SDC is proud to have been involved in such an amazing initiative which benefits so many children and households in a way that contributes to them feeding themselves for the future. The opportunity to give back to others provided us with a wonderful platform to help those less fortunate.
