It is envisaged that the Alumni Network will comprise of four streams.
Community: Build and strengthen a community of learners who are socially conscious and work collaboratively in the supporting the realisation of the vision of the Eric Molobi Scholarship Programme, which seeks to create a viable, vibrant network of young leaders. KT will facilitate and support the interaction of the community by hosting connect sessions, as well as other engagement initiatives aimed at building communities.
Leadership: Nurture and inculcate the Trust’s values in learners as part of cultivating them to pursue a journey of purpose as vibrant young leaders. This initiative will be implemented through coaching, leadership tours, exchange programmes in addition to dialogue sessions.
Pay It Forward: Educate and enable the Alumni Network community about making a difference by creating a ripple effect of kindness by paying it forward. In addition, the Pay It Forward initiative is a movement towards individual and social change, making a difference by turning barriers into positive life lessons to be shared within the network. As such, the Alumni Network will be encouraged to donate either their time or funds for the development of those who will benefit from the EMSP in future as part of the fight against poverty.
Mentorship: Help empower EMSP Alumni as young leaders who create a social impact. The initiative will provide a platform for alumni to share their knowledge by pairing with EMSP undergraduates to mentor them, provide career advice and help leverage workplace opportunities. Engagements between the mentors and mentees will be facilitated by Kagiso Trust through mentor consultation sessions.
As we embark on a journey to create the Kagiso Trust Alumni Network database, we invite current and previous beneficiaries to join us on this journey and register to be a part of this Network here.
