SALT Projects


A large portion of South African learners do not have access to quality foundation education. This in turn impacts on the learner’s primary and secondary education. Additionally, research has shown that the average grade 1 student has 44% chance of reaching matric in the correct time, and once getting to matric will only have 14% chance of being qualified to enter into university. SALT believes that dramatic social change is centered on education. SALT has come alongside grass-root level ECD centres and high school students to provide life-changing opportunities.


In South Africa there is a lack of adequate social and health services, which results in vulnerable families, vulnerable foster mothers and children, and dis-empowered women. SALT has seen how these conditions impact negatively on individual’s human dignity. SALT believes that everyone has the right to have their own dignity respected and protected. SALT aims to restore dignity through assisting families by meeting their social and health needs.


South African communities remain challenged by malnourished children and families, a lack of food security and nutrition for those fighting TB/HIV/AIDs, increase in hunger in school-going children, and vulnerable women or families due to high unemployment rate. SALT believes that food is a basic human right and together with self-development we see true life change. SALT partners with local schools, clinics, feeding sites and community social workers to provide nutrition and growth opportunities.
