The Africa Cosmos Education Trust was founded in 2018 to be a beacon of hope to individuals who are unable to pursue their dream to obtain a tertiary education due to their circumstances. The Trust recognises the importance of education and share the sentiments of the late Mr. Nelson Mandela when he stated, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” 

We want to make a difference in the lives of our future leaders by playing a key role in assisting them to develop a sound foundation for their tertiary education and in developing their skills. We aim to achieve this through a holistic support programme that involves financial aid, mentoring, and imparting valuable life skills.
