Our Competition Sponsor
The competition is sponsored by The Saville Foundation-a private foundation committed to enabling significant and relevant social change. To do this, it seeks out and engages with projects or institutions that provide innovative and appropriate alternatives to current challenges in education and community development.
The foundation also promote awareness and action on the part of donors, corporate bodies and government to engage and invest with more consciousness, assess each intervention deeply, stay involved to ensure project resilience, and ultimately replicate proven solutions.
Organisations running creative programs in the education and entrepreneurship field can play a vital role in driving positive social change, yet they rarely receive the recognition they deserve. The SAVILLE FOUNDATION Pan-African Awards for Entrepreneurship in Education represent a small step forward in terms of drawing international attention to their brilliant ideas and achievements.
