Tomorrow Trust, a prominent organization in South Africa, has been dedicated to transforming the lives of orphaned and vulnerable children and youth through comprehensive programs focused on academic, psychosocial, career, and digital development. The organization offers essential support to children in school, ranging from Grade R to Grade 12, through Holiday and Saturday School Programs. It also supports their tertiary aspirations through the Tertiary Program.
Manish Tandon, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director, Zensar, said, " Our commitment to Tomorrow Trust is in alignment with our broader vision of fostering social inclusion in the digital economy. We are determined to prepare these young minds to thrive and equip them with the skills necessary to excel at the workplace, benefitting the region and our clients alike. By empowering the children, we are not only changing lives but also strengthening the foundation of a more prosperous and inclusive South Africa."
Commenting on the renewal of this association, Taryn Rae, Chief Executive Officer, Tomorrow Trust, said, “Tomorrow Trust has been a proud partner of Zensar Technologies over the last couple of years. Zensar has shown its dedication to serving disadvantaged communities and providing that link between “has’s and have-nots” increasing connectivity, preparing our youth for the future and bridging the digital divide. By working with Tomorrow Trust together we are immediately addressing the immediate needs but also planting seeds for long-term growth, empowerment, and societal progress. We thank you and look forward to shaping global leaders together with you.”
Harish Lala, Executive Vice President and Head, Africa, Zensar, said, " We look forward to again closely working alongside Tomorrow Trust in our shared mission of empowering the children and youth in the region. At Zensar, we believe that education is the key to transforming the lives of individuals, their families, and their communities, and we are committed to providing them with the support they need to succeed. Together, we're kindling the flames of knowledge and opportunity, illuminating the path to a brighter future for these young minds."
The collaboration between Zensar and Tomorrow Trust extends beyond academic support. Zensar actively encourages the expansion of learners within its SHIFT program (Digital Skills, Holism, and Innovation for Tomorrow).

It provides access to robotics, coding, e-learning, digital entrepreneurship, academic enhancement apps, ICT connectivity, devices, and data.
