Curro Holdings Ltd develops, acquires and manages independent schools in South Africa for learners from three months old to Grade 12. Curro has been a proud provider of education to learners since 1998 and as at August 2016 provides education services to approximately 42 000 learners in 110 schools across South Africa, and in Namibia. At Curro we believe that the education of the youth is a cornerstone for the development of quality leaders and good citizens that will positively impact society.

Our schools apply 21st Century teaching and learning methodology in classrooms which include the active involvement of technology. This ensures that the educators use effective methodologies to engage learners in all the domains of learning. These domains include the promotion of communication skills, collaboration, critical thinking and problem solving.

The Ruta Sechaba Foundation was established in 2016 to provide scholarships, bursaries and awards to qualifying learners at Curro or Curro-managed schools. The PSG Group BEE Education Trust is the initial donor to the Foundation. 

The PSG Group BEE Education Trust was founded by the PSG Group in 2006. The aim of the Trust is to provide monitored financial support for education purposes to Black South African citizens. The PSG Group BEE Education Trust has identified the Ruta Sechaba Foundation, and Curro as its key partner in education, to assist in achieving this objective.
