Hello and

The Botriver Education Foundation is a non-profit organisation and exists to serve the community by empowering the young people of Botriver and surrounding towns with a means to tertiary education.

The Botriver Challenge or “BEF” as it is now known, is an annual multi-disciplinary sporting event and cultural festival and was founded by ordinary community members seeking the extraordinary for the next generation and those to come thereafter. 

The 2018 Botriver Challenge was a successful event and we hope that all participants had a memorable time in the lovely little town of Botriver. In 2019 we look to improve our event all round and we look forward to seeing new & old faces.

Thank you for taking the time to engage with us. We hope that you will find exactly what you are looking for on our website.



Your support is welcome...

The Botrivier Education Foundation’s program is run by dedicated volunteers from the community. So every cent donated goes towards educating young minds from the community. Since 2005, 22 of our students have graduated from their respective tertiary education institutes. Another 47 are currently attending tertiary institutions and a further 55 are still in school.

Thank you to all the new donors and gratitude towards our existing sponsors. Without your help it would not be possible for us to run this organisation. It is due to your generosity that we are able to instill our motto, “You can” in the minds and hearts of our students. The results speak for itself and you play an essential role in it too.

A big thank you to our German supporters.

We would like to express a heartfelt thank you to our friends all the way from Munich, Germany who have offered their services to assist us with our logo and branding design, at no cost. It is relationships such as these that allow us to make progress. Again, vielen dank Dietrich Identity.
