South African Education and Environment Project  

The South African Education and Environment Project (SAEP) empowers young people who are neglected by South Africa's education system. Through tutoring, enrichment and support, we give impoverished learners the tools to reach their potential and uplift their communities.

Our projects have developed in response to community needs to help the next generation build academic and life skills, prepare for and succeed in higher education and employment, and contribute as leaders to South Africa's economic and social development.

For twenty years, we have relied on the generous support of donors and volunteers worldwide.
