Who We Are

The Spirit Foundation is a registered, non-profit organisation based in Cape Town, South Africa, offering educational scholarships to financially disadvantaged high school scholars in the Western Cape.

The Spirit Foundation was established in April 1994 to provide opportunities for quality education to young high school scholars, enabling future generations of South Africans access to the tools needed to meet the demands in the workplaces of tomorrow.


Education is for life

An investment that cannot be lost, spent or taken away.

A good education gives a young person the tools and skills to confidently seize opportunities that become available to them throughout their lives. However, for many young South Africans, the pathway from the vision of a successful future to the reality of it, is inaccessible due to the financial restraints under which they live.
