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.

The Izzi Trust is Section 18A

Pretor reach out

1600 students at Madibatlou Middle School and 53 families of Tshepong Centre for the disabled received much needed holiday food parcels this Easter break. These students receive a daily meal from school during term time, but over the holidays they do not know where their next meal is coming from. Pretor management and staff recognized this need and committed to sponsor and give up their Christmas party and Saturdays to pack 34,000 meals. It was all hands on deck when they handed out the holiday food parcels to the appreciative students on the last day of term. Thank you PRETOR for your commitment and hard work.

Easter fun & generosity

Refentse day care centre spent the day with the pre-preparatory students of Pecanwood College.  Students had a fun day of activities planned with an Ester Egg hunt and an Easter craft activity in class.  After all the excitement of the days activities Refentse day care received a generous donation from Pacanwood students of books for their day-care centre.  Pick-‘n-Pay kindly sponsored lunch for each child on the day. Well done Pecanwood College for reaching out and making a difference!

Big hearts and smiles

Valentines Day this year was filled with care and appreciation shown to the community through an initiative by Grade 7 and matric students of Tyger Valley College. An awesome collection of chocolates from the whole school and packaged beautifully by the outreach club was distributed to Paul Jungnickel, Sungardens Hospice and Willowhaven retirement village. Tyger Valley students have big hearts, thank you for making the world a better place.

Southdowns helps out

Students of Southdowns Preparatory visited their partner outreach school in Olievenhoutbos, Philena primary, in February to deliver 288 stationery packs. The High School students also presented a much appreciated Art workshop to the Philena senior students. The Pre-Preparatory children shared the love of Valentine’s Day by collecting a huge mountain of cuddly toys which were donated to the Cotlands child and baby centre. Always willing to give, our children warm the hearts of those less fortunate.
