The prosperity of a nation depends on the degree of its investment in Education. The Investment needs to be supported by a relevant curriculum, effective management, dedicated educators, "thirsty" learners, enthusiastic parents, a motivated civil society and insightful corporates. The energy dissipated by this type of collective would develop a highly efficient society which would make a meaningful contribution to the development of the country and continent, in this case, South Africa and Africa respectively.
Education needs to be supported not only in terms of learning material, but in poverty stricken societies, social interventions are paramount. Gift of the Givers initiated its Educational Support programme in 1997 supporting pre-schools, primary and secondary schools in a range of interventions. Assistance extended to tertiary students in the form of bursaries and scholarships and is covered in another section on this site.
