The UCT Trust is delighted to announce two major grants for UCT from Foundations in the UK and Switzerland:
The Breadsticks Foundation has made a substantial award to the Perinatal Mental Health Project which will make an enormous difference to the important work of the Project
The Oak Foundation, based in Geneva, has made a generous grant to UCT’s Opera School.
The UCT Trust is deeply grateful for this support.
UK based UCT alumna and donor to the UCT Trust, Professor Mary Robertson, met Pretty Yende after an appearance by the UCT star in London. Ms Yende made her debut at the Met New York earlier this year and took London’s Wigmore Hall by storm in her UK recital debut in June 2013. Born in a township in Mpumalanga, Ms Yende is a product of UCT’s renowned Opera School and has taken the international stage by storm, winning countless prizes. To find out how you can help UCT continue to train talented young singers such as Ms Yende, see Current Projects.
Professor Robertson has recently been appointed an Honorary Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Mental Health at UCT.
