Dear Friends of TSiBA Education,

Nelson Mandela’s passing reminded us how important it is to keep his legacy alive. For TSiBA, this means continuing to develop leaders and entrepreneurs of the highest calibre in South Africa. We are therefore proud to announce:
  • 90% of our graduates of 2013 are already in full-time employment.
  • TSiBA graduate Khanyisa Mtombeni, has been awarded a Kofi Annan Fellowship to study an MBA in Germany. He follows directly after Mahlubandile Dyonase, TSiBA’s first Kofi Annan Fellow, who is already pursuing a Masters in Finance at Business School Lausanne.
  • Rayne Moses, also a TSiBA graduate, inspires other entrepreneurs with his skateboarding social business:
We hope you will continue your support in the year ahead as we build a non-profit organisation that will be inspirational and sustainable, long into the future. There are two ways to get involved straight away:
  1. Sponsor Cycling for TSiBA: Cape Argus Pick n Pay Cycle Tour
In just 9 days’ time, 20 cyclists will be racing in the arduous but scenically beautiful Cape Argus Cycle Tour on the 9th March in Cape Town.  Please sponsor these cyclists to raise money for at least one full tuition scholarship by visiting where you can make a donation in Euros.

As Madiba said: “Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world”
  1. Meet the CEO: Adri Marais’s Next Visit to Switzerland
Adri will be in Switzerland between 8 – 13 May to attend St. Gallen’s Annual Symposium and to follow up on her October 2013 visit. Please email Leigh Meinert – if you are interested in any of the following:
  • Joining Adri on the morning of Sunday the 11th May for a relaxed cycle ride followed by brunch
  • Introducing Adri to individuals or organisations who might be interested in supporting TSiBA
  • Meeting Adri for a coffee to hear more about support opportunities supporting TSiBA
  • Hosting a drinks evening at your home or place of work for people to meet Adri
  • Suggesting anything else Adri could do for TSiBA during her time in Switzerland
Of course, you can also sponsor a student's tuition for a year for only €3,890 per student. For more information about this, please email

You are an important part of the TSiBA community. We look forward to you joining us in May to support our mission to ignite opportunity for emerging talent.

Kind regards,
Dominic Speiser, Donald Pudney and Nikki Boehler
