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:

Pecanwood College

Based at the Hartebeespoort Dam.

Southdowns College

Based in Southdowns, Centurion.

Tyger Valley College

Based in Pretoria East.

Southdowns College & Rotary donate library to Philena Primary

A Sustainable

Students in Grade 12 at Pecanwood College volunteered their time to help out at Harties Haven an orphanage situated at the Hartbeespoort Dam. They enthusiastically helped them by cleaning and scrubbing bathrooms, bedrooms and the kitchen as well as getting their hands all muddy working in their vegetable garden. The best part of the day was playing and interacting with the children. The day was ended off with a feedback session with the home manager and students when they exchanged ideas on how to improve and help the home. This is an ongoing partnership with Pecanwood College and Harties Haven.
