Gear up for Thuthuka

Join the Thuthuka initiatives and make a difference, by enabling aspiring CA(SA)s, to pursue their dreams

Gear up for Thuthuka is an inspiring initiative that our SAICA community has started to support the Thuthuka Education Upliftment Fund, a fund geared at transforming the Accounting profession. This initiative is one of many, aimed at raising funds to make a meaningful difference in the lives of aspiring CA(SA)s.

About Thuthuka Education Upliftment Fund

TEUF was established 21 years ago with the aim of keeping the accounting profession alive and well, but also giving Coloured and African learners the opportunity to pursue their dreams of becoming chartered accountants. Under TEUF is a Thuthuka bursary fund, which has empowered over 3000 students to date and aims to empower even more in the coming years.

The Vision Behind Gear up for Thuthuka

As Difference Makers, we are united by a common goal to empower the next generation of accountants and professionals in our field. We firmly believe that education is a powerful tool that can break the cycle of poverty and open doors to countless opportunities.

Our goal is simple yet powerful: to raise funds to support the Thuthuka Educational Upliftment Fund, enabling more deserving students to access quality education and transform their lives.
