Our organization is called the Botrivier Education Foundation (BEF). We work in and amongst a community of about 8000 people in Botrivier – a rural town in the Western Cape and surrounding farms.
This is a deprived and poor community in all categories. Our aim is to assist promising students in high school to reach entry into university. This is done through mentoring and contact tutoring. We started with this endeavor in 2005.
Mentor students in the Botrivier catchment area to reach tertiary education so that eventually every family in Botrivier has a young person at a recognized tertiary institution. In the process enhances community development through educational excellence.
