2014 Saville Foundation Pan-African Awards for Entrepreneurship in Education

2014 Saville Foundation Pan-African Awards for Entrepreneurship in Education: Since 2007 Teach a Man to Fish in partnership with The Saville Foundation have been rewarding organisations that contribute to Africa’s long term growth and development through an entrepreneurial approach to education and training.

Saville Foundation believes that entrepreneurship in education will play a vital role in driving positive social change in Africa. Aside from financial prizes, the awards offer a platform for organisations to inspire each other and share what works.
  • Do you have what it takes?
  • Is your education or training project based in Africa?
  • Is your education project innovative?
  • Could other organisations learn from your project? 

If you answered yes to these questions your organisation could be in with a chance of winning a Pan African Award for Entrepreneurship in Education.
The competition is open to all organisations that are based in Africa and working in education. This includes primary, secondary and tertiary education, as well as non-formal and adult education.

Past winners have included a television program in Tanzania, an embroidery training programme in Madagascar and a bicycle recycling enterprise in Lesotho - we are looking for anything and everything that combats poverty in an innovative, sustainable, and effective way!
