About MIET AFRICA
Established in 1996, with its head office in Durban, South Africa, MIET AFRICA has grown into a regional organization with satellite offices in South Africa and in the SADC region. Its purpose is to promote the holistic development of children and youth and their associated school communities in the SADC region by supporting education, as well as health and socioeconomic development, where it relates to education.
For over 20 years MIET AFRICA has assisted Ministries of Education to strengthen their education systems so that they are better able to address barriers to learning, all towards securing the education rights of the region’s children and youth.
As an African NGO and an innovator of education approaches, the organization is able to make a significant contribution to sustainable development in the region. Through strong partnerships, it has pioneered many development models and programmes, and its influence extends across Africa and beyond.
