South African education is in crisis.
The World Economic Forum (WEF) Global Information Technology Report 2013 ranked South Africa’s Maths and Science education second last in the world, only ahead of Yemen. It also ranked the quality of South Africa’s education system 140 of 144 countries and its Internet Access in Schools, 111 of 143 countries.
Despite the status quo, there are numerous heroes in the public and private sector that are systematically transforming the social landscape in South Africa.

One of the heroes is Francois Pienaar’s The Make a Difference Leadership Foundation. They empower youth from disadvantaged backgrounds through well-managed bursary programs.
