Our track record of delivery: Introducing our Project Portfolio
We are proud of the fact that we have been able to initiate significant and enriching changes in the lives of so many of South Africa’s poor communities over the years. As a result of this success and the successful implementation of our projects in South Africa, we have decided to embark on an expansion programme whereby we aim to establish a significant footprint in other African countries through social franchise development.
These are our projects:
A unique Model United Nations Debating programme with a focus on the United Nations, global issues, international relations and human rights issues. Every year more than 500 schools throughout South Africa participate in this programme.
A project established in 2008 which aims at training and providing ongoing support to principals and care-givers at pre-schools, with a view to ensuring school readiness of the children as they progress to primary school.
A three-dimensional project comprising International Arts & Culture tours (since 2009); Marimba Hubs (since 2012); and the Education Africa International Marimba & Steelpan Festival (since 2012).
This is a practical educational programme which uses the familiar object of a bicycle as a teaching and learning tool. We provide teachers and learners with fully-prepared cross-curricular teaching materials and run teacher training workshops.
Together with the UNISA Centre for Business Management we have developed two 1-year Certificate course aimed at improving the skills of South Africa's managers, and also developing entrepreneurial skills for those wanting to start their own business.
Established in 1995 by Education Africa together with Walter and Albertina Sisulu, this project gives access to quality, relevant education to impoverished students. More than 3 500 scholarships have been awarded to date.
Education Africa, in partnership with students of architecture from international universities, facilitates the design and construction of pre-schools in disadvantaged South African communities, using sustainable materials
This school was initiated by Education Africa through the construction of a primary school in 1996 and a high school in 2009. Over 900 learners are registered at the school which has become a beacon of hope for the impoverished Orange Farm community.
Since 1997 we have distributed over 11 000 bicycles and equipment to under-resourced schools in rural communities, changing the lives of many children who would normally walk long distances to attend school.
