EDSA Mission Statement

The mission of EDSA is based on the following founding principles:

  • We believe that the key to democracy in South Africa is an equal, well-resourced and accessible education for everyone.
  • We believe that only a commitment to good education for all young people can break the cycle of poverty and crime in South Africa.
  • We raise funds and offer other support to early years and youth work initiatives in the isolated rural areas of the Western Cape.
  • We encourge the use of the creative arts to support the development of children and young people.
  • We encourage and support young people from isolated rural areas to matriculate and to go on to further and higher education.
  • We support projects initiated by young people in their own community which are for children and young people.
