ASSET – Association for Educational Transformation
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 ProgrammeThe Bursary Programme was established in 1972 under the auspices of the SAIRR Cape Western Region.It provides financial assistance for needy matriculants who apply for study at a tertiary institution in the Western Cape. ASSET took over the programme in 2003 and thanks to the on-going generosity of donors it continues to support approximately 500 students annually.Bursaries are variable and cover a percentage of the cost of tuition together with an annual book allowance. Bursars are able to access loans to cover the shortfall and any other costs e.g. hostel accommodation through our partnership with the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS).
  2. The Learner Development Programme
    The LDP provides educational services for high-school learners who attend under-resourced schools in the townships and who live in poverty-stricken communities in the Greater Cape Town Metropolitan Area. Since 1982 the organisation has been providing educational support in the form of a Saturday School for learners from disadvantaged communities. The school operates throughout the year and during school holidays. From small beginnings the programme has grown according to demand, to accommodate up to 2500 learners. Contrary to expectations the demand and need for supplementary tuition has increased year on year. Although government policy has attempted to bring equality and redress in education, schools in previously disadvantaged communities remain heavily under-resourced in all respects and continue to reflect the poverty that surrounds them. The schools are overcrowded, with educators and managers often ill equipped to cope with the demands of the curriculum.

St Francis Adult Education Centre
Night school for adults and day school for matriculants. St Francis is currently a Day, Night and Weekend School, servicing about 4000 learners annually and having well over 100 educators. It generally operates from 08:00 to 21:00 daily. Academic course levels range from Literacy Level 1 to Matriculation (Grade 12)

St Anthony’s Education Centre – Matric Project
The Franciscan Matric Project began in January 1986 in response to requests from concerned parents on the East Rand.  Students had either failed their matriculation exams or were unable to write due to disruptions in their schools and communities.  The aim was to help those students that for one reason or another needed an opportunity to rewrite Matric (Grade 12).  A real “second” chance was offered. Each year the project has obtained consistently good matric results, with a high exemption rate, especially in Maths and Science.
