About Us

Every Seed Holds a Future

Education, especially early childhood education, is the key to transformation and a better future. Samara Foundation works in rural, under-resourced communities in the Eastern Cape, one of South Africa’s poorest provinces, and through developing and supporting education plants the seeds of change.

Our Projects

Developing And Supporting Education In Rural Areas

Through infrastructure and resource support, capacity building and training, we work to change the quality of education in rural communities, especially for children in their earliest years, where it all starts.

Infrastructure and Resource Support

We work with early childhood development (ECD) centres and support them with the changes needed to create warm and welcoming spaces that encourage learning.

Capacity Building and Skills Training

To achieve lasting change at the ECD centres, we work with the ECD carers and make sure they have the skills to run a quality daily programme as well as manage their centres.

Africa Run: Ekuphumleni

We partnered on the international fundraiser, Africa Run, which raises once-off funds for a deserving school which is invested into infrastructure, resources and student and teacher development. 

Annual Reports

Sowing the seeds of change

Through focusing on both immediate needs, such as infrastructure and resources, as well as building on the potential held within the community and its individuals through training, the seeds of change are sown.
