Sasol Inzalo Foundation
The Foundation is a public benefit organisation, that drives excellence in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) education at all levels of the education value chain. The Foundation aspires to pioneer reform in STEM education systems. in order to do this, the Foundation explores and uses opportunities for collaboration, working with effective partners to support the programmes and projects. The aim is to engage in programmes that are guided by specific themes to address challenges in the education systems.
the Sasol Inzalo Foundation has identified the need for better instruction in Science starting at the foundation phase, and has therefore entered into partnership with Siyavula to produce workbooks for Natural Science and Technology Grade 4-6 to be printed for the whole country by the Department of Basic Education in 2013.

The Shuttleworth Foundation provides funding for dynamic leaders who are at the forefront of social change. They identify amazing people, give them a fellowship grant, and multiply the money they put into their projects by a factor of ten or more. They are looking for social innovators who are helping to change the world for the better and are looking for some support through an innovative social investment model.
Mark Horner, the director of Siyavula, holds a fellowship from the Shuttleworth Foundation.
