Charity profile

The Spirit Education Foundation is a registered non-profit organisation based in Cape Town, South Africa. Our vision at the Spirit Education Foundation is Building Our Nation Through Education, One Scholar at a Time and we do this by providing educational scholarships, extra-curricular support and mentoring to high school scholars in the Western Cape. The organisation was established in 1994 and has since then seen over 400 scholars through our programme - the equivalent of over 2000 years of education!

We have on average 100 scholars in our programme each year, with over 200 matric graduates enrolled in the Spirit Education Foundation Alumni Society, many of whom are giving back to the organisation through offering their support, mentoring and tutoring of the current Spirit Education Foundation Scholars.

The Spirit Education Foundation works with specific partner high schools in the Western Cape to ensure that our scholars receive top quality education and are able to receive ongoing mentoring and support from the Spirit Education Foundation Scholar Facilitators.
