Education Africa

"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world" - Nelson Mandela

Established in 1992, Education Africa strives to reach and uplift the poorest of the poor. They aim to assist disadvantaged South Africans in their quest to obtain a quality, relevant education in order to ensure that they are in a position to become global citizens and a competitive, productive element in the local job market. Education Africa’s head office is based in Johannesburg, South Africa. The team is headed by James Urdang, who is both the Chief Executive Officer and founder of Education Africa.

In march 2018, World Music Workshops and Worthing Steel Band worked with Education Africa to bring a South African Marimba band to Worthing for a special day of workshops and an evening Afro-Caribbean music, food and dance. This proved to be a memorable night and hopefully paved the way for a future collaberation and other nights run on a similar model.
