    "GBT’s profound conviction drives them to deliver the sensational results they have: where vulnerable youth become active and inspirational participants in South African society. They’re able to teach us a thing or two about getting over ourselves."

    "The support, which we have afforded to GBT is sincerely aimed at helping to close the gap between our family and GBT’s, even if it is to the tiniest extent. With it, goes a kind of remote love, which is difficult to understand. Please keep up the excellent work that you do – it is so pleasing to read how much it is appreciated, not only as recorded by your 2015 Mayor, but also by many of us on the 'outside'."
  • Michelle
    "We ourselves have teenage children, so we know first-hand how difficult this stage of their lives is. They are fortunate to have family support and encouragement, so we understand the importance of organizations such as yourselves to fill the gap that their family members are not able to provide."
  • Rochelle
    "Thank you for everything you do in the community for the children"
  • Marilyn
    "We have been supporting this charity since my children were small and the youngest is now 34.  It gives me much pleasure to support from another of our companies."
