General Botha Old Boys Association

Who we are: – The General Botha Old Boys Bursary Fund was founded in 2011 to promote education for underprivileged students in order to get employment in the Marine Industry.

Our aim: To help young South Africans follow in the wake of those who served in the training ship in Simon’s Bay, at Gordon’s Bay or at Granger Bay and in the process, to let them enjoy a worthwhile maritime career.

What we do: Not only do we raise funds to pay for education but we are also actively involved in mentoring the young students (usually aged 15 to 17 years old) as well as ensuring safe travel and supplies for their further improvement in life.

What we need: Obviously we need financial help in the form of donations but also support for our fund raising events, gifts for prizes at events or auctions and if anyone can help with their time this would be much appreciated.

WHAT IT COSTS: The bursary that our unique fund provides covers Boarders' and Day Students' tuition (click here for details)– Quite incredible!
You can see from this that any donation goes a very long way.
