About Tseleme Social Club and VUT
Tseleme Social Club is a foundation established to empower the dream of an African child by bringing development to communities through the VUT Alumni network.
The club was founded in January 2019 by two VUT alumni, Lekopane Molonopi and Bonolo Modise, friends and homeboys from the North West province. As part of their 40th birthday celebrations, they decided to raise funds and make a difference in the lives of impoverished children in their home province.
To date, the following schools have benefited from the foundation:
- 2016- Thusang Primary School, Leeudoringstad, Maquassi-Hills
- 2017- Phatsima Primary School, Phola, Boikhutso Township
- 2018- Hartsrivier Primary School, Mocweding Village, Pampierstad
- 2019- Ineeleng Primary School, Kuruman
- 2020- Molotsi Primay School, Mabeskraal
- 2021- Molokotoane Primary School, Jouberton
Explaining the rationale for VUT’s participation in the charity event, Peter Masombuka said: “This event presented an opportunity for us to resuscitate the relationship we have built with our alumni since we launched the North west Alumni chapter in 2012. Although the success of the event may not be visible to the naked eye, a seed has been planted and we will groom the tree.”
