Background

The Foundation was started by Temba Bavuma (South African national player) in 2016, with a view to make a meaningful difference in the lives of scholars from previously disadvantaged backgrounds through education and the sport of cricket. 

 

Areas of focus

  • Providing financial support through scholarships for talented scholars to access the best quality schools in South Africa (primary, secondary and tertiary school).

  • Facilitating cricket cricket clinics for talented young cricketers in the townships.

  • Refurbishment and upgrading of cricket facilities in the townships.

 

In order to achieve the above, we partner with various organisations and institutions.

The Future

The Foundation seeks to continue on its mission of making a a meaningful difference by rewriting the South African narrative through the provision of  access to quality education through scholarships.
