OUR STORY

Back in 2012 , fresh out of university Dintle decided to start an NGO to empower young girls through mentoring and hosting various workshops. Together with some friends they rolled up their sleeves and adopted their first school in Ga-Rankuwa , Dintle’s hometown, a township in the north of Pretoria in South Africa.

 

Since then, Dintle has continued helping others. Over the years she has seen many of her cousins and friends, both in private and public schools,  struggling to decide what to study, where to study and how to get funding.

She has also realised that most young people from disadvantaged backgrounds don't have ACCESS to INFORMATION.

Her observations and frustrations drove her to work on developing tools that will assist students to map out their future by providing them with as much information and guidance as possible in an engaging and easily accessible format.

At Thuto Thusa we want to help young people identify their strengths, skills and talents and give them information that we all wish we had when we were in secondary school, college and university that will help them succeed.

At Thuto Thusa we aim to:

- Ensure that students have equal opportunities by improving the level of information students have on life after secondary school;

- Align students to careers that are in line with their skills and that address the skills shortage in  their country; and

- Provide virtual mentoring and career guidance for secondary students with a focus on underprivileged communities and schools.

 

We are looking forward to transforming more lives and helping to create a skilled and educated nation.
