South Africans have inspired the world by building a thriving democracy on the ashes of racial oppression. Central to their achievement is a constitution, one of the most progressive in the world, conferring on all the right to a good education. Building a solid foundation of learning and teaching remains the greatest challenge to the country fully unlocking its extraordinary potential. Education Africa acknowledges that it will take decades to rectify the wrongs of apartheid and restore the balance in South Africa's education system. Indeed, the re-establishment of a culture of learning and teaching in our country is very much still a "work in progress".
Our head office is based in Johannesburg, South Africa. We pride ourselves on the fact that we have a very small staff complement which means that the vast majority of our resources are able to be distributed to our projects, supporting communities in need rather than used for administrative purposes and office overheads. To assist us with our many projects and fundraising events, we rely enormously on a dedicated team of volunteers both in South Africa and abroad. We also registered in Austria, Canada, UK and in the USA.
We are proud of the fact that we have been able to instigate massive and enriching changes in the lives of so many of South Africa's poor communities through our many projects.
