What is the John Davidson Educational Trust (JDET)?

John Davidson was born in Johannesburg in 1913. He matriculated from St John’s College, obtained an MA from Cambridge and later qualified as a Chartered Accountant. His education was interrupted by World War Two and he was a Prisoner of War for nearly four years in Italy and later Germany. John was the General Manager of the family firm, Boksburg Brick and Fireclay Ltd. He hated social injustice and firmly believed that education was vital to enable anyone to have an opportunity in life and to begin to achieve their potential. He helped many young people during his life; subsequent to his death, the John Davidson Educational Trust (JDET) was established to continue his vision.
