Our NPO operates thanks to the support of the RATP Foundation (France) and the Federation Wallonia-Brussels (Belgium), which also help our learners to go to Varsity by financing bursaries, and other sponsors (companies and individuals)


For the last 4 years, our students have received scholarships or funding from the Federation Wallonia-Brussels (Belgium) for a total amount of 17 000 €  par year (between R210 000 to 270 000 depending on the exchange rate). The majority of our students are studying at the University of Johannesburg and Wits.
