The South African Education and Environment Project (SAEP) is a non-profit organisation, based in Cape Town, South Africa. We provide education, life skills, and psycho-social support programmes for children youth and education providers.

We began in 1994 as a vision sparked between several committed learners at a township high-school and an environmental lawyer, Norton Tennille, who is passionate about education. SAEP’s culture still reflects the early days of the organisation where bright young people were invited into our founders’ home to dream and to learn together.
