Students for a Better Future’s core mission is to provide students displaying academic potential, who are financially needy and demonstrate resilience and tenacity, with the opportunity to study at some of the best high schools and post-secondary institutions in Cape Town.

 At the very core of Students for a Better Future is the ability to learn and adapt based on what the scholars and students need to develop, in order to achieve our vision of “individuals who can successfully contribute to positive change.” The end of 2018, Students for a Better Future, developed a 5-year strategy which adequately prepares us for the future and enables ongoing monitoring and adaption. The plan clearly sets out the continuum of a scholar and student life at SBF, right from recruitment through to becoming an SBF Alumni.
Family is the overarching value at Students for A Better Future. For us family members guide one another and learn the other values together in the spirit of love and care. Family is not limited to the traditional nuclear family. Family includes people close to you who show care for your emotional, personal, social and intellectual wellbeing. Family provides a sense of belonging. It means showing up for one another, communicating with one another clearly and providing love, care and support to grow positively.

The new strategy has enabled us to grow and expand our exciting team and fill 10 new positions in our Cape Town Office, working to ensure individuals with academic ability and financial need have access to quality education, holistic support and opportunities for growth, through collaborative and strategic partnerships.
