What an opportunity!
The Geleentheid Trust is a charitable organisation that awards scholarships to talented young people from the Stellenbosch area who can’t afford to attend their high school of choice. We’re currently supporting ten scholars.
A group of friends making a difference
The Geleentheid Trust was founded in 2008 by Michiel le Roux and Emile van Biljon. The idea originated from a late night conversation over a few beers and became reality soon after. What started with a bunch of friends giving something back has grown into a sizeable organisation.
Geleentheid Trust aims to give kids from poor communities the same sort of opportunities that its donors had when growing up.
