About The Bold Step Campaign

The Bold Step is an initiative by the Kagiso Trust to encourage the nation to take a bold step and get actively involved in changing the face of education in South Africa.

This campaign is a call to action for South Africans to contribute to education reform through Bold Step. It is time to build a new type of mobilization in education. We need to tap into the potential for public action. We have the opportunity to ensure that more young people have quality education. Quality education is imperative to tackling poverty.



The EMSP Programme

Kagiso Trust is committed to transforming the country’s economy through implementing supportive and sustainable education initiatives at the heart of rural South Africa. As an extension of the Beyers Naude Schools Development Programme (BNSDP), Kagiso Trust has conceptualised, implemented and managed a follow-on bursary programme named after its late founder, Mr. Eric Molobi. The programme sponsors disadvantaged learners to complete a tertiary education degree or diploma.



Through the EMSP programme, the Kagiso Trust is investing in a brighter future for some of South Africa’s most deserving young learners. Many of our scholarship awardees have not only excelled in their studies, but become brilliant mentors themselves, inspiring and motivating learners from their previous schools. With involvement from individuals, corporates, organisations and government, Kagiso Trust aims to increase the number of beneficiaries through the Bold Step campaign.
