Jabulile Chonco

From Joburg schoolgirl to medical school in Cuba

Schoolgirl Jabulile Rose Chonco was given the opportunity to partake in the Star Schools program. With her 2012 and 2013 school years sponsored, she experienced what Tutuka is all about, completed her Microsoft classes, and went on to graduate in 2014 with an A in Mathematics.

Today, Jabulile is in Cuba, completing her third year studying medicine, having been accepted into The South African-Cuban Medical Scholarship. “My dream is actually becoming a reality”, she added. “The impact that Tutuka has made in my life will always remain in my heart.”

Tsholofelo Rantsieng

A delicious dream come true

A former account manager at Tutuka, Tsholo always made time for her true calling – cake! Recognising her passion, drive and artistic talent, Tutuka provided business mentoring, a grant, and an interest-free loan to build her a specialised kitchen.

“I never dreamed I could bake for a living and run my own business”, said Tsholo, who went on to complete a pastry diploma. Her business, “Decadent Patisserie”, is now a consistent caterer to Tutuka, and she has travelled to the USA to be mentored by a Michelin-starred chef.

Kenneth Mphumi

From security guard to networking entrepreneur

Once a security guard at our Johannesburg offices, Kenneth approached Tutuka about his dream of earning a networking qualification.

With our help, he obtained his Ciscos qualifications – identifying a business-need as he did so. With equipment, investment, and guidance from Tutuka, Kenneth now runs his own training centre and Internet café in Johannesburg.

“My life has changed,” he says. “I can now empower others through training.”

Emmanuel Kito

Easing the burden of cerebral palsy

Emmanuel was deprived of oxygen during his four-day, mismanaged labour. Now, a young boy living with cerebral palsy in Johannesburg, Tutuka’s regular contributions to his trust help support his care and education. We also assisted his mother Leah in setting up and equipping a trading-store business.

“Emmanuel is such a happy little boy. I want to give him the best care”, Leah said. “I’m only able to do it with the donations from the trust. I am so thankful.”
