How to become a sponsor
We at the Genesis Trust would like to provide you with the opportunity to not only contribute to the future of a child, but also to become part of the life of that child.

myschool logo About MySchool
The MySchool acts as a channel which raises and delivers essential funding to schools and charities in order to improve education and social development in South Africa. This enables members of the community to participate in the future development of our nation in a sustainable way.

The program gives parents and other community-minded individuals a vehicle through which to they can make a meaningful contribution to schools, in a convenient and transparent manner. This is not a donation service, but a true partnership between schools and business partners.
How MySchool works
My School effectively facilitates charity support on behalf of a range of business partners who have a specific interest in education. The fundraising program is a partnership between business partners, consumer supporters and schools; all striving to create a better future for learners in South Africa. Approximately 600 000 parents and community minded individuals have MySchool supporter cards.

Supporters use their MySchool supporter cards whenever they transact with one of the MySchool business partners. A small percentage of their transaction is then allocated to their beneficiary school or charity. All these transactions are recorded and a statement is sent to individual supporters on a monthly basis.

The supporter card is not a debit or credit but serves as a measure through which valuable supporter data, such as transactions and funds raised for a particular school, are tracked.

Genesis Trust together with the organisation Trees4Schools are putting forces together to launch a project that will change the lives of many underprivileged children in the Western Cape.

The Trees4Schools Trust was adopted as the Corporate Social Initiative of the South African division of coffee company Miko's Fairtrade and Fairtrade Organic coffee offering Puro. Locally Puro has gone one step further to support the Trees4Schools Trust by donating a percentage of their local turnover to the trust.

The aim of the project is to plant 1 000 trees during the month of September (Arbour month) at 10 different schools in previously disadvantaged areas of Cape Town. A selection of trees will be planted according to area, type of soil and environmental factors. The Trees4Schools team will be visiting each school to educate them on the care that goes into not only planting a tree but sustaining the environment.
Education and the Environment – why plant a tree?

• Education

Through planting a tree we not only provide shade and a green picture at schools in previously disadvantaged communities, but you will enable that children from those schools have the opportunity to obtain a tertiary education. Those children will be given the chance to rise from their circumstances and become an educated independent and self sufficient adult. The core of our countries problems is unemployment and poverty! Help us to solve that problem by educating children and removing them from the vicious cycle which they have been caught in.

• Environment

1 000 000 trees planted in Los Angeles helped to remove a total of 200 tons of air pollution. The Genesis Trust and Trees4Schools project will be an annual event and in 10 years we will be able to also remove 200 tons of air pollution out of the skies of the Western Cape. Help us to make this dream a reality and not only educate our children, but teach them that the conservation of our environment is also in their hands. Planting trees is one of the best things you can do for the local environment and for the planet. It’s no secret that trees help the environment, but you may be surprised by all the benefits that planting trees can provide. Besides producing oxygen and removing carbon dioxide and contaminants from the air, trees have many other social, economic, and environmental benefits.

• Community upliftment

Just being around trees makes you feel good. Can you imagine your community without trees? Trees, especially in urban areas, have numerous social benefits. For example, the addition of trees to a neighbourhood and school can greatly improve the mental and physical health of children and residents
