Providing Educational and Financial Support To Students from Disadvantaged Communities

ASSET (the Association for Educational Transformation) is situated in the Western Cape, South Africa. It is a non-profit NGO which aims to provide opportunities for students from disadvantaged communities to realise their full educational potential, and to contribute to the process of educational transformation in South Africa.

There are two core programmes:

1. The Bursary Programme (established in 1972)
2. The Learner Development Programme (established in 1982)

Both programmes were previously run under the auspices of the Cape Western Region of the SA Institute of Race Relations but gained independence in 2003 under ASSET.

Learner Comments

I come to school on Saturdays because when I am at my school there are some things that sometimes I do not understand properly when my teacher is teaching on the weekdays. So Saturday classes are helping me because I ask my teacher on Saturday to explain to me what I don’t understand in a different way as my teacher at school so that I can understand.
