1. First, we endeavor to find students who are most vulnerable and marginalized, and who therefore have the greatest potential to change the course of their futures. 2. We then evaluate each student as whole individuals. These are individuals who have intricate and specialized needs that cannot be met by a “one size fits all” mentality towards education. 3. Finally, we build a tailored program to support students by meeting their specific educational needs, be these needs financial, physical, emotional, social or all of the above.

The Tertiary Program offers bursaries to students completing various degrees at different institutions. Our goal is to support and help build independent, problem-solving, conscious young adults, who will enter the workplace self-reliant and ready to lead a successful life. This is achieved through ongoing support provided by our in-house Psychologists and various activities students experience throughout their time at the Tomorrow Trust. We aim to create a safe space and a family environment, where all students can learn, fail, and grow, without judgment, prejudice, or fear. We believe that success is not linear when we walk the students’ paths with them as they navigate the complexities of life as young adults. Being part of the Tertiary Program, allows students to commit and invest in their self-development and growth; helping them reach their true full potential both academically and personally .
Tomorrow Trust also offers additional programs that aims to improve and quip students with a set of skills they might need in the future , such as our SHIFT program . Also to address the educational and psycho-social gaps in the youth coming from orphaned and vulnerable households across the developmental spectrum .
