About Us



Excellent Emelda Foundation was established in August 2015 by Emelda Seja And Tebogo Mannya. It was launched at Letheba High school in Botlokwa during an appreciation ceremony for Emelda and Tebogo hosted for their former teachers. With the challenges that the two has encountered during their school days, the desire to start an education foundation that will provide essential programs and other supporting instruments to accelerate social development so that learners can focus on learning, resulted in the birth of Excellent Emelda Foundation. Emelda and Tebogo serves as the patrons of the foundation and it is led by a fully fledged independent board.
