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.
