As an association of NPOs collectively and collaboratively working for positive impact through education we specifically value:

  • Accountability – encouraging members to cooperate and collaborate to improve the delivery, effectiveness and the demonstrable impact of their projects;
  • Inclusivity – working together to find solutions that improve the accessibility and reach of programmes without sacrificing the diversity or openness needed for everyone in South Africa to benefit from learning and education;
  • Innovation – promoting flexible solution development which grounds itself in evidence-based evaluation and practice improvement;
  • Advocacy – building our credibility through delivery and championing the strengthening of the South African education system by independently (rooted in results) and objectively (without prejudice) giving a voice to our members.
