Angela du Toit
Angela du Toit is 20 years old and lives in Fort Beaufort in the Eastern Cape. She developed a passion for offering people medical assistance when she attended training courses at the Academy for Emergency Training. She successfully completed courses in First Aid and is a registered Basic Ambulance Assistant. She naturally chose the field of nursing for her further studies.

Phindi and Angela had to apply great determination and perseverance to get into their respective colleges because their applications to different colleges/universities were plagued with disappointments and delays. Everybody that was involved in supporting them was relieved and excited when they finally enrolled. Their experience proved once again that teamwork is necessary for success. They had different family members and project coordinators from their farms, involved in liaison work between themselves, the colleges and the Foundation.
