The great and legendary Nelson Mandela once said “Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world”. At Leverage Point we strongly believe in uplifting communities through educational programs. We continuously walk this talk through our upliftment projects. Education is priority since we believe if there is any change which can be effected,such will be driven by education.
Projects We Are Involved In:
Valdezia100 is a tertiary education fund which assists students from the impoverished village of Valdezia in Limpopo, who then intend to give back to the community which they come from. The program helps in funding University tuition, accommodation costs and living allowance. Leverage Point is a sponsor and partner of this organization which has seen high performing students accessing university studies. The organization was established in 2013, seeing its first student register at the University of Limpopo Medical school in 2014.
