Although the programmes of the past four decades had all been of great significance, as SITFE entered its forty-fifth year, it was felt that its focus had become too diverse, minimising the overall impact of the Trust’s efforts. Much had changed in South Africa since SITFE’s inception, leading the Trust to re-evaluate their initiatives, focus and future.

The growing gap in the availability and access to education and facilities between developed and non-developed communities remains of central concern. Seeking to bridge this gap, the following projects initiated within the past several years provide detailed examples of the Trust’s core objectives.
