Driefontein Trust sends first student to university

In 2011, the Driefontein Trust, for the first time has sent the son of a Driefontein farmer-member to university. Gerry van der Westhuizen is now studying at the University of the Western Cape to become a teacher.

Says one of Driefontein’s directors: “Our parents maybe only had Standard 5 (Grade 7), but thanks to the Trust our children can now go all the way to matric. What’s more, they can see that one of our children is going to university. A university education has got value. And our children enjoy this because they are being supported. It is our dream to give our children a better life and this dream can now come true.”
