Giving Back

In 2008 Neil and Lesego founded Raise the Children International (RTC). Lesego, being an orphan herself, has always had a deep desire to give back to the community that raised her, and so has Neil, who wanted to effectively and sustainably give back to the country.

The couple, together with the RTC community, strive to empower the many orphans in South Africa that share Lesego's story


Raise The Children

South Africa has over 4 million orphans. We aim to equip and mobilize a generation of orphaned youth in order to transform South Africa

We identify, provide scholarships and give mentorship to self-motivated orphans from rural and impoverished communities, from grade 8 to 12 at top schools.
