New Africa Education Foundation is a registered Public Benefit Organisation with the South African Revenue Services (PBO No. 930047551), therefore donations to New Africa by South African individuals and corporates are tax-deductible up to 5% of their total income.
Additionally, because of our Public Benefit Organisation status, the normal donations tax ceiling of R30,000 does not apply. New Africa will issue Section 18A certificates to all donors, as these certificates are required when completing tax return forms. We have gained over 20 years experience in the corporate sector.
New Africa Education Foundation is a registered NPO (Non Profit Organisation NPO No. 139-043) with the Department of Social Development in the Republic of South Africa.
By partnering with Corporate organisations and Government, our main objective is to assist previously disadvantaged youth and communities by improving the standard of education in South Africa especially in Science, Mathematics and Technology.
How do we achieve this
By providing learners and educators with the equipment and necessary training support to advance the progression of Maths, Science and Technology in South Africa and beyond.
To partner with like-minded Corporates and funders who want to invest as part of a solution to improving our poor standard of Science, Maths and Technology education in South Africa.
South Africa hit rock bottom in an international survey in Maths and Science:
- The World Economic Forum (WEF) 2012 report placed South Africa last in a ranking of 62 countries.
- The World Economic Forum (WEF) 2014 report placed South Africa last in a ranking of 148 countries.
- The WEF’s 2014 Global Information Technology Report also ranked South Africa 146th out of 148 countries for the overall quality of its education – below a host of other African countries including Swaziland, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Kenya, Malawi, Uganda, Rwanda, Senegal, Tanzania, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Mali.
Science and mathematics are gateway learning subjects required by learners to study disciplines such as medicine, accounting and science, and South Africa needs to seriously address the current situation if we we are to progress in the above fields.
