What if every South African student had an equal chance?
*We partner with schools & universities who provide support as well as safe learning spaces for tutoring lessons.
Luxolo Copiso grew up in Khayamandi, a township in Stellenbosch, where getting through school can be a huge challenge for students. In 2017, he became the first person in his family to pass matric. He was also accepted into UCT to study psychology which was his dream the entire way through school. The Preeva Foundation will continue to support and motivate Luxolo and hundreds of other students through their challenges at school and university. Individual attention can be the difference.

Help us to sponsor 1 million hours of free tutoring by 2019.
The Preeva Foundation focuses on two things. Firstly, we work on building relationships with schools and universities across South Africa in order to give more students the opportunity to receive sponsored tutoring. Secondly, we are trying to build a global support base of sponsors who can help students to reach their dreams.
We outsource our tutoring to Preeva. They have built a low cost tutoring service exclusively for non-profit organisations. They provide high quality tutors to our foundation students and manage all of the admin associated with tutoring. Other foundations using the service include Home From Home Foundation and Adonis Musati Project. Check them out!
When you donate to The Preeva Foundation you will have the opportunity to use an app to track your donation. On this app, an account will be created for you and you will be allocated one or more student(s). Your donation will be converted to lesson credits and used to pay for your student's lessons. You will be able to see when the student takes lessons and monitor how they are progressing as a result of your donations. The monitoring includes a comprehensive list of all past lessons, what happened in each lesson and how your student scored for the lesson.
