About the SAICA Thuthuka: The South African Institute of Chartered Accountants (SAICA) is a South African based accountancy body, in fact, they are the top accountancy body in the country. The history of the company dates back to 1894 when it was formed in Johannesburg as “The Institute of Accountants and Auditors”.

SAICA is one of the global leading Institutes and currently boasts more than 36 000 members. The company prides itself on providing its CAs with advice, support and services over the course of their professional lives. In 1987, SAICA joined forces with the Association for the Advancement of Black Accountants (ABASA) and the PAAB to create the CAs’ Eden Trust, as a means to provide bursary funding to black CAs(SA). The name then changed to the Thuthuka Bursary Fund in 2002 and has since assisted many struggling students to complete their studies and reach their dreams of becoming a CA.
