Our purpose: Founded in 2009, we are a South African not-for-profit organisation committed to delivering excellent quality Christian education to vulnerable children.
We care that
- More than 60% of South African children are poor.
- Children and women are deeply affected by unemployment, poor educational outcomes and poverty, exacerbated by the socio-economic shock of the Covid pandemic.
- The average 10-year-old in 2022 has worse reading outcomes than the average nine-year-old from 2019.
- Future-proofing the next generation of teachers and ensuring the best quality of educators to positively impact learners.
- Quality Christian education as an instrument to give children hope and the right foundation to have a future free of poverty and a more equal society.
What we do
We play our part towards South Africa achieving its commitment to the UN Sustainable Development Goal 4 that by 2030 all girls and boys have access to quality early childhood education, development and care.
We do this by:
- providing quality primary school education and care at our Nokuphila pre-primary and primary school;
- providing vocational tertiary education and training of teachers, specifically early childhood education practitioners and primary school teachers.
We strive to reduce poverty and social inequality through holistic education and care of primary and pre-primary children, including nutrition, psycho-social and remedial support.
We impact children’s education through the teacher.
We empower black women to qualify as teachers and equip them to be leaders in their communities.

We have a solid record, enabling you to be confident in your donations. During 2019, we put extensive work into improving our executive and management governance.
The Love Trust Trustee Board, in its commitment to governance excellence and fiduciary accountability established sub-committees for policy and strategic oversight of financial, risk and academic performance.
At the operational level, a tighter focus on clear goals was initiated. We appointed a Director of Academics to steer curriculum delivery across the school and adult education pillars of our work. As part of our good management practice, we reviewed and updated relevant internal operating policies.
Our behaviour is governed by our Code of Conduct and policies aligned with South African legislation, including protection of children, employment equity and employment practices, health and safety.
