Because of our long history of running scholarship programmes, we have continued the management of a few small trusts and funds which provide education in other parts of Africa, outside our priority countries.
Colonel Johnson originally established a fund to support the children of fallen Swazi soldiers in his regiment. The fund now enables HIV/AIDS orphans and other disadvantaged students to attend secondary schools and vocational training schools in Swaziland. The management of the fund was transferred to AET in 2001.
Dodo Pitt and her family were long standing friends of AET. When her family established a memorial fund, they asked AET to help support the management of activities associated with the fund which supports girls’ education in South Africa. Learn more
Zebra Trust is a registered trust which supports secondary school education in Kenya, Lesotho, South Africa, South Sudan, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe. They have asked AET to help manage and monitor their overseas work. If you are interested in learning more, please see the UK register of charities.
Stephen Beaumont is a friend of AET from its days supporting scholarships. He is passionate about supporting girls’ education in South Africa, and AET manages funds on his behalf.
