Who are we

The API Education Foundation was established in South Africa in 2007 with the focus on having young students from the United States working among the disadvantaged communities in and around Pietermaritzburg and Cape Town. Our vision is to support and facilitate education and training projects which support community development and upliftment.

What we do

The Foundation has now adapted to assisting such communities by means of grants for projects arranged through similarly-minded organisations.

Who we help

The Foundation helps support Christian-based community-focused organisations working among the disadvantaged within the province of Kwazulu-Natal, South Africa, and the Greater Cape Town Metropolitan area with the emphasis on assistance with specific, approved educational projects.
