A growing community

A growing community of people around the world with an interest in a constructive future for South Africa, including many ex-South Africans, are championing EwB’s mission to promote more positive educational outcomes for young people in disadvantaged communities.

The EwB board in South Africa is primarily responsible for the governance and support of the educational programme and its operations on the ground. The EwB operations team directly oversees the day-to-day delivery of after-school and holiday programmes to learners at the 5 sites based at schools or community centres in 3 townships outside Cape Town.

Education without Borders has its primary base and programme in South Africa, which is linked to a network of partners in Canada, Australia/New Zealand, USA, each of which is registered as a not-for-profit entity in its own country.

Each of the EwB partners has charity status and raises funds in their respective countries for the EwB programme in South Africa. In each of these countries, South African Film Festivals have become annual events that both celebrate South African film and provide a platform for fundraising. Other fundraising activities include cultural events and grant applications.
