Our Story

In the vibrant tapestry of South Africa’s business landscape, the story of 21st Century Pty Ltd stands as a testament to resilience and growth. Over the past seven years, our journey has seen us evolve from a single entity to a dynamic group of five companies, thriving amidst the challenges of a precarious economic era. As consultants in business and end-to-end human capital, we have had the privilege of serving as trusted advisors to two-thirds of JSE Listed companies, majority of the public sector and organisations across Southern Africa.

Yet, amidst our growth and success, we felt a deep calling to create another avenue through which we could directly impact the lives of ordinary South Africans and underserved communities. Rooted in our ethos of innovation and sustainability, education emerged as the natural conduit for our mission. Thus, the 21st Century Foundation was born – a beacon of hope and transformation, dedicated to pioneering change and fostering a brighter future for all.

Our Vision

Driven by our commitment to making a tangible difference, the Foundation embarked on a journey to empower learners, transform schools into centres of excellence, and uplift communities through educational and entrepreneurial initiatives.

Our vision is not just to touch lives, but to inspire lasting change – to build a legacy of impact that transcends generations. As we look ahead, we are filled with a sense of purpose and possibility, knowing that the best is yet to come.

We understand the importance of collaborative efforts to enhance the quality of education and the development of learners in South Africa
