Who we are

Save Our Schools is a School’s directory that aims to equip under resourced Schools with fundraising tools that can assist them to have the necessary means to gain resources and to improve their learner experience, consolidating fundraising efforts and working towards a more sustainable future.

Save Our School is a unique service – for our Schools from underserved communities in South Africa.

One of the greatest obstacles to global online fundraising has been that there is no South African database of validated Schools upon which donors and companies including individuals can access through an online fundraising platform.

Save Our Schools developed a School fundraising online platform, creating a network of Schools that need funding and can be accessed through their own online presence, their own website. We have developed innovative FinTech solutions for Schools in South Africa to have their own web presence, by becoming of the Smart Online School drive.

We sparked the www.smartonlinechool.org.za innovation.

Schools in underprivileged communities need new revenue to fund unfunded mandates and manage shrinking budgets. Save Our Schools developed the Smart Online Schools platform, where Schools can create websites, focusing on Wish-Lists to help Schools meet their educational objectives.

Smart Online School is a platform created for Schools to create their own online presence, also to work as a fundraising platform, to reach local business, corporates and past pupils to improve South African Schools and Education efforts.
