The Association for Educational Transformation is situated in the Western Cape, South Africa. We are 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. 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.
What can you do to help?
Support the Bursary Programme.
The major challenge facing any bursary programme is the annual escalation in the cost of tuition.
Support us through Donating
Our programmes help students in the final years of schooling and those wishing to further their studies in higher education.
Support the Learner Development Programme
The impact of the LDP on learner performance shows consistently those learners who attend, out-perform their peers and thus have a better chance in life.
Please help us to stem the cycle of poverty and to realize the dreams of our youth.
The barriers to accessing tertiary education in South Africa for the majority of black students are huge. Our programmes help students in the final years of schooling and those wishing to further their studies in higher education to break through these barriers and achieve their full potential.
Feedback from Learners
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.
