The Department of Basic Education is committed to ensuring greater educational quality and accountability by focusing on previously disadvantaged rural and urban communities. Learners in these communities are faced with numerous barriers, including the limited capacity of schools to implement the National Schools Curriculum, ineffective teaching and limited learning resources.


It is for these reasons that the Department of Basic Education has prioritised the improvement of the quality of teaching and learning, to ensure that learners in rural areas and township schools have access to key subjects such as Maths, Science, Technology and English. The government recognises that its priorities cannot be addressed without the involvement of the community, stakeholders, non-governmental organisations and the private sector. It is against this background that the founders of TEACH South Africa have responded to the government’s call to become partners in this process by forming TEACH South Africa.



TEACH South Africa sees strategic partnerships with both companies and non-profit organisations as an essential component to the success of the organization and for contributing to the lives of young learners. TEACH South Africa is currently receiving significant support, both financial and in-kind, from the following funders/sponsors:
