Swimming to Ignite Opportunity
- Number of champion(s): 11
- Event: Open Water Swim Robben Island
- Cause: Tertiary School in Business Administration (TSiBA)
Team TSiBA will be "Swimming to Ignite Opportunity” through education for talented youth from previously marginalised communities by braving the icy Atlantic, jelly-fish and marine ‘wild-life’ to swim 7.5km from Robben Island to Big Bay, Blouberg, in April 2017.
Our mission is to secure one full-tuition scholarship (R55k) for a TSiBA student to study towards becoming a future SA leader and entrepreneur. TSiBA students are not required to re-pay their scholarships financially – but to Pay it Forward transferring the skills they learn at TSiBA back into their communities.
Founded in 2004, TSiBA Education NPC is a unique, full accredited, non-profit business school whose mission is to provide an educational platform for those who may otherwise have been unable to access tertiary study due to academic, or financial constraints.
All swimming champions will cover all related event costs so your donations go to the project!
Thank you to Pacer for sponsoring our team with custom team swimming caps!
*All donations over R100 will be issued a Section 18a Tax Certificate by TSiBA.
