Welcome to Malapa Motsetse Foundation
In order for our Rainbow Nation to shine, he considered that it was the moral responsibility of those more fortunate, like himself, to extend the advantages some take for granted in order to build a better future for all.
By combining a conviction that STEM (Science / Technology / Engineering / Mathematics) skills and English literacy are essential to succeed in today’s working environment, Tim conceived what has now grown into the Malapa-Motsetse Foundation. Registered in 2015 with 33 children, this not-for-profit organisation encompasses a host of charitable projects managed from the Malapa-Motsetse Foundation campus in the historic township of Westbury, Johannesburg.
Qualifying students (educators and community leaders) will be equipped to coach learners in robotics.

We provide teachers with courses covering computer literacy, current educational systems, educational leadership, blended learning, differentiated classrooms, digital teaching plans, and the use of STEM digital content in the school and classroom environment, etc.
