The Learning Trust

The Learning Trust is a non-profit, grant making and capacity support service provider whose focus is to support and strengthen local, effective and sustained educational interventions and community clusters that target South Africa's children growing up in conditions of poverty and exclusion.

What We Do

The Learning Trust (TLT) is a thriving South African non-profit organisation which supports individual emerging organisations and education clusters over a 5 year period. As a well-regarded grant maker and capacity support service provider, we provide financial support and build the capacity of over 60 small, community based organisations in the Western Cape, Eastern Cape and Gauteng. We offer focused training, mentoring and ongoing coaching in a variety of organisational development areas and our strong relationship with our grantees allows for significant growth and development over an extended period of time. Concurrently, we are establishing ourselves as a respected facilitator in the transformation of the After School/extended learning sector in South Africa and support the creation of collaborative education clusters within the three provinces we currently serve.

On the following pages, you can find out more about which services we provide, how we assist grantees and partner with donors, what our guiding funding criterion are and you can meet The Learning Trust’s team. You can also find information on our current grantees and TLT’s donor partners, read more on our work in the After School sector and get in touch with us directly.
