Enlighten Education Trust strives to improve the quality of education and life in the communities of the Overstrand

Enlighten Education Trust

We strive to improve the quality of education and life in the communities of the Overstrand. Enlighten Education Trust is unique in that we believe that the quality of education in general will not improve unless the problems in education are tackled from a variety of angles.

Our History

During the past 15 years, the National Department of Education in South Africa has introduced sweeping changes to both curriculum and delivery of education in South Africa. A great deal of effort and money has gone into trying to redress the inadequacies and inequalities of the previous education system.

Current Projects

All the projects which are implemented by Enlighten Education Trust complement and support each other. The interventions in schools are approached from management, curriculum, youth and social perspectives. Early Childhood Development projects provide support and training.
