WHO WE ARE
To accelerate access to education for students in Africa through the effective mobilization of innovation, relationships, and resources.
To be part of the solution in empowering the young generation in Africa from disadvantaged communities to have access to further education and enhance their skills for a better tomorrow.
That every student will be prepared for life after high school, whether the choice is to attend university, or to obtain technical and vocational training.
OUR BELIEF STATEMENTS
EQUITY FOR ALL
We believe every individual deserves access to a high standard of education.
We believe in assisting students to access the various post-secondary and career pathways available to them.
We believe in investing in the young generation as the future drivers of innovation and economic growth.
To harness the power of a collaborative approach, leading to understanding each other’s views and values, allowing different generations to increase their sense of awareness of one another.
This, in turn, will provide a platform for students who have been able to complete their higher education or training and start their professional careers, to support other students as an act of appreciation and acknowledgement.
Education forms the foundation for preparing the next generation of future leaders.
"Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world". - Nelson Mandela

2022 BURSARY RECIPIENTS
MA Urban Design (UCT)
Research intention: Don’t Waste Africa (How does Africa deal with waste?) – The research aims to investigate waste management by mapping five cities in five different countries, in an attempt to understand how waste affects these areas. Africa has the ability to solve its own ‘waste problems’ by learning from ‘waste solutions’ in neighbouring African countries.
Lerys is a well-spoken and confident individual who has braved a career change: after completing her degree in architecture, she acquired professional experience in her field for a few years, and subsequently decided to upskill and specialise in Urban Design.
She believes that the design of cities is very crucial for the future development of Africa – our continent is urbanizing at a rapid pace, and Urban Design is vital in helping to solve complex issues to improve the functionality and liveability of its cities. She hopes that an AWF bursary will help her realize her goals.
