Spirited Education Foundation - Successful Charity 2018

Spirited Education Foundation

"Building Our Nation Through Education, One Scholar at a Time"

The Spirit Education Foundation is a registered, non-profit organisation based in Cape Town, South Africa and was established in April 1994 to provide opportunities for quality education to young disadvantaged high school scholars. Through the awarding of educational scholarships to financially disadvantaged scholars in the Western Cape, the Spirit Education Foundation provides financial support for high school tuition. This includes extracurricular support and mentorship to all scholars enrolled in our programme.

The Spirit Education Foundation believes that education is for life, and it's an investment that cannot be lost, spent or taken away. However, due to financial constraints, many young South Africans struggle to access this vision of a brighter future, and are denied access to these pathways to success. A good education allows a young person to develop skills to confidently seize opportunities that come their way, throughout their lives.

The Spirit Education Foundation creates partnerships between the scholars, their families and the schools, providing support and resources wherever possible. They mentor scholars in partnership with their families, motivating them to achieve academically and to realise their potential. By encouraging creativity, leadership and raising self-esteem, we are helping to build a prosperous and healthy nation, through education.
