Through its effective development models, in which it has invested for more than 15 years, it has empowered a great many beneficiaries, including school learners, teachers, principals, tertiary students, and entrepreneurs. It also supports vulnerable women and children in the school communities in which it works.
The overarching aim of the Foundation is to create a more inclusive society. It is a catalyst of change and a partner of choice in development.
Its holistic programmes, implemented through its partner entities the Adopt-a-School Foundation, KST, the Cyril Ramaphosa Education Trust and Black Umbrellas, are developed from pilot projects that are transformed into sustainable cost-effective programmes that can be shared and replicated. All programmes are aligned with global and national development objectives.
