Welcome to Tirisano Foundation
Tirisano Foundation is an institution made up of young professionals from South African townships who, through education and self-development, have found a market for their skills and would like to impart this knowledge to learners from similar backgrounds. Through opportunities given to us, we realise the importance of other aptitudes and support to fuel career growth and a successful future. We would like to show, by using ourselves as an example, that there are avenues for life changing economic prosperity. Our team has grown over the years with a variety of professionals running the organisation.
Our vision is to see meaningful and sustained growth in the number of successful professionals & entrepreneurs coming out of Gauteng.
To play a developmental role in the improvement of Education outcomes and Career awareness in Gauteng, which we believe will translate in the improvement of the lives of those we partner with.
We conduct educational soft skills & career oriented classes with our learners on allocated Saturdays 9am-12pm. We are currently working with two schools in Soweto - Sekano Ntoane (Senaoane) and Tetelo High School (Protea North)
At a Primary Level - the percentage increase in the number of pupils who gain university entrance; At a Secondary Level - the percentage increase in the number of pupils who pursue tertiary education (other than university); At a Tertiary Level - the percentage increase in the number of pupils who enter the job market immediately post matric.
