African School for Excellence • affordable secondary education in South africa

Children born in a South African township are unlikely to receive a secondary education. Where others accepted this as a fact of life, Nonhalanhla Masina, the child of a domestic worker in the township of Tskane believed that as a society, things could be better.

With our support, she co-founded the African School for Excellence to bring world-class, affordable secondary education to children who would otherwise be forced to leave school and enter the workforce at an early age.

Using a revolutionary classroom design, the African School for Excellence leverages technology to deliver world-class education through a network of high quality, low-cost secondary schools in South African townships.

Noni is working hard to support more kids and build a foundation that will enable her to scale this self-sustaining network of elite independent secondary schools that anyone can afford across Africa, securing equal opportunity for these children’s future.
