Since 2011 Thusanani Foundation has evolved from a two men initiative into a registered non-profit organization with over 1000 volunteers in 6 institutions of higher learning across South Africa, reaching out to over 35 000 high school learners in Rural KZN, Limpopo, Eastern Cape, Free State and some Gauteng Townships. Thusanani Foundation has managed to enroll over 450 students into various institutions of higher learning. During the 2014 academic year Thusanani archived an 88% pass rate with many student passing with distinctions. In partnership with Universities, FET Colleges, NGOs, Government and the Private Sector, the Foundation aims to reach out and empower over 100 000 rural and township youth by 2017.
Much of Thusanani Foundation’s class of 2014 has reached the long awaited finish line. First in the Graduation line was Nqobakonke Ndaba and Phumuza Xulu who both completed a Barchelor of Clinical and Medical Practice at the University of the Witwatersrand. Well done Boys! Congratulations to you and your families for this great milestone in your medical career. We wish you well as you pursue your future studies abroad.
We also wish you well as you prepare to contribute towards the future of healthcare in rural Kwazulu-Natal and further welcome you to Thusanani Foundation’s prestigious group of selfless alumni. Thusanani Foundation would like to thank the National Skills Fund (NSF) for financing Nqobakonke and Phumuza’s full cost study until they completed their studies.
