Our Mission

The Buffelshoek Trust was initiated in 2001 with the mission of providing "upliftment through education" to the people of Dixie and Utah villages in the Manyeleti Region of Bushbuckridge.  The first donation of about R10 000 has since grown to an annual portfolio of up to R2 million of direct spend and up to R10 million of partner spend across 12 educational institutions in the Acornhoek, Manyeleti and Hluvukani Regions of Bushbuckridge.


Our ethos

Not having everything you need doesn't mean you can't strive for excellence. - Elvis Siwela, former principal of Manyangana High School, member of parliament
