Founded in 1936, ORT South Africa was, until 1994, a fundraising organisation which collected money for ORT projects worldwide. With the advent of non-racial democracy, ORT South Africa’s fundraising has supported its own projects helping disadvantaged communities in and around Cape Town and Johannesburg.
ORT’s work in South Africa empowers teachers and improves literacy in townships, encourages budding entrepreneurs and provides job search skills and guidance. Hundreds of people in South Africa today find jobs and build their own businesses thanks to ORT.
