Ixoxo Trust believes in quality education for ALL children. It is the greatest social vector there is. We raise funds to send disadvantaged children to good schools, (fees, transport, uniforms, stationery…) We mentor and encourage the child daily.

Hi I am Tracey, one of the founding trustees of iXoxo Trust. This Trust actually started at a dinner party...

I am the pre-school teacher at a rural/farm village pre-school on a huge Estate. I see such potential in the kids I teach and then sadly I watch their spark go once they go into Grade 1 in the poorly functioning farm Primary school nearby.

Three friends and myself decided to raise funds to send some of these children to the excellent Primary school in town. We started in 2011. Our mission is to pay forward the benefits of quality education that we enjoyed to a new generation of disadvantaged children in the Midlands of Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa.

We started a Trust - Ixoxo Trust.  iXoxo is the isiZulu word for frog. Frogs are bio-indicators of enviromental stress and health, so too, we felt , is our nation's children's education a social indicator of our own nations health. 

Nelson Mandela said, " Education is the powerful weapon you can use to change the world."

We are a targeted Non Profit and Public benefit organisation. This allows us to supply Section 18A tax certificates in South Africa. Any donations we receive contributes (in South Africa) to a companies BBBEE scorecard as all of our beneficiaries are Zulu.

I don't mention colour, surely it is about time we get that we are all one human race. Right? Right. :)

We need funds to help us continue to grow and develop these fabulous children in 2017. Our one little lass is an A student. Hooray. She is the one in the video, that was taken in 2013, and she has done so well.  The other little girl is doing well and is so kind and helpful. The boys! One clown and they all need to be reminded to do their schoolwork :)

The funds will be used for the following needs for these kids:

School fees - $1553 US dollar per child

Fuel for the transport to and from school - $3100 US Dollar annually

School lunches- $40 US Dollars annually

School uniforms - $410 US Dollars annually 

School stationery - $500 US Dollars annually

Sports equipment - $135 US Dollars annually

We have five children at present and would like to help more as our funds allow.

Please join us in being a positive trajectory in these childrens lives by donating funds. it is our ojective to help grow these children into good men/women with emotional intelligence, sound life skills and healthy self-esteem, that have had the advantage of an excellent education through our help.

We are audited annually and willingly transparent. Woo Hoo :)
