The South African Education and Environment Project (SAEP) is a non-profit organisation, based in Cape Town, South Africa. We provide education, life skills, and psycho-social support programmes for children youth and education providers.
SAEP originally focused on environmental education and awareness for high school learners, and launched its first after-school enrichment programmes in Philippi in 1998. Over time, however, in response to beneficiary requests and community needs, its focus has evolved to promote academic and personal development more broadly at all levels of educational development.
Vision: A generation of motivated South African youth, equipped with education and life skills to maximise their potential and contribute to society.
Mission: Prepare and motivate children and youth from under resourced communities to thrive, through education,
life skills and psycho-social support.
Our programmes focus revolve along these academic spheres -
Early Childhood Development • Primary School • High School • Bridging Year • Tertiary Support
SAEP offers a variety of services to learners by providing mentoring and tutorial support mostly as an after school activity (primary and high school students); and support for post-matric students enrolled in our bridging year and tertiary support programmes via enhancing life skills, mentoring and ensuring that they succeed in their chosen line of tertiary education.

Our office stands on two full floors of the Waverley Business Park, on Kotzee road. We have fibre optic internet connectivity and wi-fi facilities. Each programme has its own workspace with desks, phones and central printing facilities.
We prefer interns or volunteers to bring their own laptops and mobile devices which we could hook into our system. Such devices need also be personally insured by individual candidates prior to coming to South Africa.
Unfortunately, we are unable to provide volunteers any form of financial assistance.
