The Claude Leon Foundation


ASSET is a Western Cape based, Section 21, non-profit organisation which was launched in 2003. It previously operated under the auspices of the South African Institute of Race Relations (Western Cape Region). ASSET has been serving the educational needs of students from disadvantaged communities since 1982.
ASSET through its Saturday Programme, called the Learner Development Programme (LDP), offers supplementary tuition in key subjects to grades 11 and 12 learners from selected township schools, with very close liaison with school principals and subject teachers, throughout the year and during school holidays when Winter and Spring Schools take place. The LDP objectives include: improving conceptual understanding and learner performance; improving language proficiency across the curriculum and helping learners explore appropriate career choices.
The Claude Leon Foundation supports ASSET in offering the Saturday Programme to 1 800 grade 11 and 12 learners from the informal settlements of Kraaifontein (Masibambane, Bloekombos, Wallacedene and Fisantekraal High Schools); Sinenjongo High School in Joe Slovo Park (Milnerton) as well as Masiphumelele and Ocean View High Schools outside Fish Hoek, on the outskirts of Cape Town.
