I was born in Pretoria, South Africa. I matriculated from Pretoria Boys High and then traveled to Austin, Texas to study marketing. I received my BBA in Marketing in 1992.I’ve been in retail fuel business for 12 years. The Litres for Education Trust started as a community project and owing to community response we are now a fully fledged NPO.

The people I’ve met have inspired me and have shown me the power of giving back to a country I love. Instead of complaining about the failings of our democracy I am now part of the solution.

Driving education one litre at a time.

I was born in Pretoria, South Africa and received my three year accountancy diploma in Johannesburg. Upon qualifying I was employed by a large financial company in Kempton Park. After 15 years of service, I felt the winds of change blowing and I sailed to Durban.Graeme and I have been in the fuel industry for the past 12 years. The LFE initiative was born out of our desire to support our local schools and charities in the Glenwood Area in Durban. We started the initiative at our service station and the communities response was so overwhelming we knew we had to take this to all people in South Africa.

The result the Litres For Education Trust. A Trust that has developed a powerful way of raising sustainable funding for schools and charities most in need all over South Africa.

I am a lover of animals, enjoy being creative, playing the piano and spending quality time at home. We are very proud of the LFE Trust and we are now in a position to afford every single motorist the opportunity to donate to their favourite cause.

I grew up in Richards Bay and finished my school career in 1985. I then spent a year in Richtech where I learnt basic secretarial skills. I’m a single mom with two grown children. I take on tasks with gusto and have a very positive outlook on life. Animals and children are very close to my heart. My zest for life is only surpassed by my love for laughter.I have been in the secretarial and sales departments for many years and have worked in corporate environments as well as various smaller companies. This was until the opportunity came along to work with Graeme & Zelda at Litres For Education. By nature I am a giving person and always trying to help where I can, what better way to give than work for a Trust that gives to the schools and charities in need.

Justin Van Staden joins us all the way from Mokopane in the Limpopo Province. Justin is dedicated and loyal to the LFE cause. He has hit the ground running and what he lacks in experience he makes up for in enthusiasm and passion for the LFE cause.

Justin is a much needed addition as our team has been under pressure with the growth in popularity of the programme. He will be dealing with many of our beneficiaries in the Glenwood, Morningside, Westville, Pinetown, Durban North and Umhlanga areas.

LFE welcomes Justin and we know his positive energy can only enhance our already burning passion for the LFE programme.
