Supporting the future of SOS children

As part of our charity partnership with SOS Children, the Club is giving its support to the future of the children within the organisation’s care.

As part of our charity partnership with SOS Children, the Club is giving its support to the future of the children within the organisation’s care.

It is for this reason that we are delighted to give one young lady the opportunity to become the first child from the SOS Village in Rustenburg to move onto higher education.

The Club has a special relationship with the Rustenburg village, which opened in 2006 and is home to the Spurs House, which is uniquely funded by monies received from players’ fines.

And by paying her tuition fees, we will help Tshegofatso Moselakgomo study for a Bcom in Accounts over the next four years at the University of Johannesburg and hopefully achieve her dream of becoming an accountant once she finishes her studies.

The 18-year-old was admitted to the SOS Children’s Village in Rustenburg on January 16, 2009, after her mother and father passed away.

She and her friend, John, were special guests in a VIP suite at Coca-Cola Park for Saturday’s Vodacom Challenge Final, and both had the chance to meet Michael Dawson and Gareth Bale prior to kick-off.

Tshegofatso said: “Spurs have made my dream come true and now I can definitely say I am one of their biggest supporters!

“It was great to be at the game and meet with the players. Now I am excited to begin my studies and get the chance to make Spurs proud of me.”
