The Rainmaker Award was awarded to the Trust in May, based on the following premises of Dan Nkosi, the college’s Principal: “Ours is a continent known for its dryness. In Africa, a drop of rain or a droplet of morning dew signals hope; hope for growth, hope for life and hope for prosperity. A prosperity that is infectious in that it engulfs everyone around.

This is the happiness and joy that occurs when Africa sees one of its own showing signs of being a Rainmaker, or actually living the selfless and inspiring life of a Rainmaker by creating opportunities, hope and prosperity for others.”

The award was received on behalf of the trustees and beneficiaries of the Trust by Gerrit-Maritz Jonker and Siyabonga Thinta.

The Trust operates a Child Protection Organisation which manages a Child and Youth Care Centre that is registered to care for 120 orphaned and vulnerable children (OVCs) in Krugersdorp.
