It’s the first celebration of its success! On Friday 22 March 2013, Teach Unlimited Foundation (TUF) celebrated its accomplishment in initiating positive life-changing impact on disadvantaged children through its unique education support and mentoring program at its first anniversary dinner.
Attended by over 100 supporters, partners, and education and community leaders, the Gala Dinner was the first opportunity for TUF to say thanks and share its success with those who have given TUF the most critical support since its inception.
