What we stand for
For almost 25 years CEF has been working to close the gap that exists between education and training opportunities for country youth compared to their city counterparts.
Currently the gap stands at 7%, and while that might not sound like much, it represents tens of thousands of country kids who, through no fault of their own, miss out on accessing education and training.
This gap is caused by financial challenges, distance and isolation and loss of support networks – these have an enormous influence on the ability of country kids to participate in tertiary education and training.
We are working to even the playing field on both local and national levels, and do this in a number of ways.
