Education Africa is a non-profit organisation with a proud track record of successful delivery on its thriving projects.
Established in 1992, Education Africa strives to reach and uplift the poorest of the poor. We aim to assist disadvantaged South Africans in their quest to obtain a quality, relevant education in order to ensure that they are in a position to become global citizens and a competitive, productive element in the local job market.
Education Africa’s head office is based in Johannesburg, South Africa. The team is headed by James Urdang, who is both the Chief Executive Officer and founder of Education Africa, Roy Shough, the Chief Operating Officer, and Linda Gould, the Operations Director. Known for their ability to “make things happen” and for their tireless commitment to the task at hand, they are an inspiration to those who work with them and know them.
Education Africa has registered self-sustainable offices in the USA, in the UK and in Austria. Their purpose is to assist Education Africa South Africa in achieving its mission.
Education Africa delivers economy-focused education while assisting those most in need with opportunities to improve their access to relevant education, thus enabling them to participate fully in the global economy. With the continued help and support of our dedicated volunteers and sponsors, we can continue to fulfil our mission statement: to deliver relevant, quality education to the poorest of the poor.
