Our Auction Partners
The mandate of The Cape Wine Auction Trust is to raise money to support education in the South African winelands. The organisations we are proud to fund are:
Aitsa! After Care Centres
Improve the quality of the lives of the children in the Dwarsriver Valley area by providing them with safe, stimulating and nurturing environments and programmes in the afternoons after school.
Assisting disadvantaged schools and communities by providing academic, social and environmental support, as well as equipping children with skills for lifelong learning. We recognise each child as unique and aim to support the holistic development of the child through education (literacy, numeracy, remedial and reading programmes), physical development (sports) and the teaching of life skills through drama games. We also train rural women to implement our programmes (skills development).
Calling Education NPC
Calling Education inspires, equips and grows leaders, future fathers and teachers through innovative low fee schools.
The Click Foundation
Innovating and testing non-conventional, technology-based solutions that have the potential to scale and meaningfully impact education for individuals. The focus is online foundation phase literacy programmes, as well as implementation, training and management of the programmes in primary schools.
School-based mental health and social services to children, delivered by a team of psychologists, counsellors and social workers. Range of psycho-social services, including assessments, counselling and therapy to children; life skills sessions with children; support and development programmes with teachers and parents. All with the aim of empowering children to excel at school and beyond.
Emerging Leaders exists to bring tangible HOPE into vulnerable communities in Africa and the UK, through LEADERSHIP TRAINING. Our NGO believes that leadership training can call out the Leader in everyone – if we don’t learn to lead ourselves we won’t lead anyone else.
iBhodi Trust is a bold project to create a new blueprint for delivering high quality education throughout South Africa to students who need it most. The iBhodi Trust model is a blended learning solution, where students still “go to school” and receive their academic instruction virtually via desktop computers from highly qualified teachers. In addition, locally hired mentors are physically present in the classroom in order to provide critical mentorship and pastoral care functions
for their group.
High-quality Early Childhood Development (ECD) is the most valuable investment that humanity can make in its own future right now. We reimagine ECD in the Cape Winelands of South Africa by investing in teacher training at the world-leading Indaba Institute. Our goal is to empower and equip our region’s lowest-income women to become leading role models in their communities and quality teachers to the next generation.
The Kusasa Project
The Kusasa Project educational programme aims to provide a quality Pre-school and Foundation Phase education to disadvantaged children in the Franschhoek Valley. In addition, we seek to enable bright scholars to attend higher-functioning secondary schools and receive after-school academic and life skills support through our programme.
The Lunchbox Fund
The Lunchbox Fund focuses on fostering education via nutrition by providing a daily meal for orphaned and at-risk school children in townships and rural areas of South Africa. The Fund also provides Nutrition Programs to After-School Assistance organisations and Learner Skills Development Programs. The Fund’s Secondary Focus is Female Empowerment through employment.
Pebbles Hemel en Aarde Education Project
Quality Early Childhood Development and After School care for children in the Hemel en Aarde Ridge region.
A leading NPO in the field of holistic community development within rural farm worker communities, with a core focus on education.
Pinotage Youth Development Academy (PYDA)
The goal is to develop talented, previously disadvantaged 18-25 year olds through personal development and wine industry-specific vocational training so that they are able to launch careers that will enable them to sustain their families and contribute to change in their communities.
