At the World Education forum held in Dakar (2000), 164 countries committed themselves to six goals. One of which is:

                "Expanding and improving comprehensive early childhood care and education, especially for the most vulnerable and disadvantaged children".

The X Foundation's vision is closely aligned to this goal that South Africa committed to at the aforementioned Forum.   We understand that government alone cannot achieve it

and this necessitates the need for visionary organizations to take proactive measures. Since its inception in 2010, the X foundation has educated eleven (11) underprivileged scholars from the community of Umlazi (KwaZulu Natal). This year (2013), we have twenty-one (21) beneficiaries, all of whom we provide with fully paid bursaries and support.

Even though Census results released in 2011 show an upward trend in persons aged 5-24 attending an education institution between 2001 and 2011, there is still more to be done to ensure that a large percentage of the population is afforded access to education. This is why the X foundation feels duty-bound to dramatically increase the number of beneficiaries over the next ten (10) years.

Yours in Youth Empowerment
