About us

We're passionate about what we do

For Coloured Girls Bursary Foundation is a not for profit organisation. Our sole drive for the organisation is to provide a platform for girl children who are growing up in “coloured” communities with no or little access to resources to ensure that they become independent, intellectual and strong women who will become role models and mentors of tomorrow.


Providing Support and Resources

To provide support and resources from grade 8 to grade 12 through mentoring, learning and development initiatives, psychological and financial aid for those with the potential and passion to further their academic qualifications. In addition, provide the necessary bursary platforms to assist the girls after their matriculation with information and funding if necessary.
