African Angels Independent School was established by the African Angels Trust in 2012. Located in Chintsa East, just outside East London, the school provides quality primary school education with the aim of allowing children from under privileged backgrounds to innovate and develop into productive and responsible citizens thus breaking the cycle of poverty. Through the Chintsa East Community Learning Centre, the Trust school also provides educational opportunities, internet connectivity and other community services to the over 3 500 residents of the community of Chintsa East. This is achieved in collaboration with parents and community leaders.

In 2020, the Trust established the African Angels Days for Girls Enterprise social enterprise. This was done in partnership with Days for Girls International. The social enterprise is fully operational and currently employs five women to manufacture high quality reusable washable sanitary towels. Products are sold for profit as well as donated to women and girls in need. Over 450 girls have benefitted from donations.

African Angels also partners with Ikhwezilomso Educare, an ECD centre based in Chinta East. Through the partnership, African Angels provides financial support, coaching and mentorship to the ECD centre’s lead teacher. Over 70 children aged between 18 months and 5 years of age benefit from the partnership. In addition, in 2020 African Angels facilitated the donation and installation of 166 streetlights in the local community. Further, 28% of the students who have graduated from African Angels have been accepted into and attend some of the most prestigious high schools in the country including the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in Johannesburg. African Angels alumni have also qualified for bursaries that allow them to access educational opportunities and break the cycle of poverty they were born into.
