Pioneer Office National sponsored a team of Sepheo students to compete in the 2019 Malealea Monster event over the weekend of 27-29 September 2019.
Their sponsorships covered race fees, bike hire, team tracksuits, meals and accommodation for our senior class, enabling them to compete in 3 days of running and cycling in the Lesotho mountains.
Pioneer Office National has been a long term partner of Sepheo School since founding in 2014.

With Pioneer Office National’s support, children were given the chance to succeed and to push themselves beyond what they thought they could achieve.

Life on the streets for children is hopeless, but Sepheo helps them form a new identity and achieve excellence. This experience shows that it is indeed possible to achieve Excellence out of Poverty.
