The first fundraising cycling tour was in 2010 at the genisis of what is now a collaboration between QEF, EEF and 1965Ride Cycling for Education.
Our members’ schools of excellence are situated in the impoverished Eastern Cape province of South Africa, in the rural inland town of Komani.
They include diverse public and donor-based private primary and high schools, English and Afrikaans medium, whose offering appeals to families who value quality education.
Families from other provinces and, even, those from across our country’s borders are also attracted by our affiliated schools’ well-run boarding facilities.
