Thuto Trust works with the highest calibre of associate organisations in their respective fields. Our associates include:
The Trust focuses on developing educators of the highest quality through reputable and recognised universities. Beneficiaries currently study through the University of Witwatersrand, University of Johannesburg and the University of South Africa.
Fedgroup is the appointed Trust administrator, performing administration, monitoring and evaluation of Trust activities.
Countless deserving, previously disadvantaged young people pursue the higher ideals of education through the Trust, to become South Africa’s future leaders and a solution to the basic education challenge.
Fund Managers and Investments
Thuto Trust works with a diverse team of corporates, including Aluwani Capital Partners, Fedgroup, Cambridge University Press, Rouvierre General Brands, TransUnion Credit Bureau and Reabetswe Capital to grow the Trust Endowment Fund through ongoing fundraising and investment activities.
These contribute significantly to the financial sustainability of the Trust. The various fund managers have contributed to the deployment of Thuto Trust funds and diversification of investments for the benefit of both the current cohort of students, and prospective students.
Guaranteed return investments minimise exposure while ensuring continuity in terms of base funds. Private equity investments, chosen to minimise risk, provide growth and dividends, while also contributing to Corporate Social Investment (CSI) funds as a donation towards teacher development.
RAMS Incorporated provides advice and solutions to Thuto Trust on legal compliance issues.
